I really wanna see Drake become a consistent runner....He looks odd asf the way he hits the holes because he's so upright and stiff.
He needs to run behind his pads better. Ajayi got really good at it last yr....almost outta no where after like week 2. Dare I say elite.
Carroo, Grant and Drake. Man, if they can provide depth and quality playing time, there is no end to this offense
No surprise here. They all showed potential last year. Good to hear Carroo is improving. Would love to see him be impactful this year after giving up 2 picks for him.
They were rookies last year, sometimes it takes time to grasp the NFL. Really looking forward to what all 3 can bring this year.
Not only were they all rookies last year but they were all playing behind some of the most talented players on our team.
I still have high hopes for all 3 sophmores and the depth, on paper, is jaw dropping. You'd be hard pressed to find a better all-around WRing corp than ours. Same goes with the RB's. Between Ajayi-Drake-Williams to go along with Parker-Landry-Stills-Carroo-Grant your talking about a QB's dream.
A QBs dream would be having OL w/o questions at the OG position.
Same thing Ajayi did since college.
Why do Dolphins fans alway hype nobodies?
every fanbase does, not only ours. spend some time on a general NFL forum, not a specific teams message board, and you'll see.
I'm a Dolphins fan and I don't expect bums like hull to be "the next Zach" or mediocre WRs drafted burning multiple draft picks to overtake the three big money guys we've got on the depth chart.
It's insane. The only guys I've hyped were rashad jones...and that's it as far as camp heroes go. I mean it doesn't count if the guy was a top draft pick like #90. Wasn't a fan of the pick but he looked good.
It was a very good draft. Not sure why everybody craps on that draft.
Anyone who has made an NFL roster, even as a backup has highly achieved in their chosen profession. I don't understand the reference to Hull as a "bum". With respect to Carroo, he was highly productive in college and was far from " mediocre".
These same types that call players bums and nobodies, are the same ones that complain that we give up on them too soon if they go to another team and do well. ie. Wes Welker....
Carroo is no bum I promise you that
Never complained about Wes, I thought we held him back. Not a clear cut number one wr but a great slot guy and solid football player.
Bums relative to their peers. With your logic there's no valid criticism of any NFL player.
You call players in the NFL bums and nobodies, and you think that's "valid criticism"? SMH
Just a matter of Carroo adjusting and learning this complex offense. He will shine this year. I watched him live a few times at rutgers and he looked elite compared to everyone else on the field..
Would it help your baby ear syndrome if I said, "gee guys he's not very good and probably doesn't belong in the NFL let alone a starting lineup".
I think Hull is going to get exposed big time as a starting MLB. Teams will run over, through and around him.
Ahh, the guy that calls NFL players bums now calls me names, not surprising! SMH
What name did I call you? Must be a millennial
Sooo in regard to his peers would you say he's a bum?
Ya one of the best drafts we've had in awhile. People are complaining about getting Tunsil, Howard, Drake, Carroo, Grant in the same draft? Damn that's very weird lol
But after year 1, it was determined that we gave up entirely too much for Carroo lol. Imo, they could all bust except for Tunsil and it would still be a great draft, he's that special, especially at 13.
After year 1, we should be more than happy with our draft class. And yes, we may have given too much for Carroo. As much as I love Jarvis, I am starting to think Carroo really was drafted to be his replacement. Yes, getting a LT that is considered one of the best to come out since Joe Thomas is special in its own right. Tunsil made that draft. The fact that we traded back, grabbed Alonso and Maxwell, and still got the best player in the draft in about as lucky as a Fin Fan will ever get. Adding Howard, Drake, Grant, Carroo is really just icing on the cake. I can def say I haven't been this excited to see a LT in a very long time lol
I wouldn't trade Tunsil for ANYBODY in that draft class. Considering we picked at 13, that's an unbelievable value. Like you say, everything else is icing on the cake.
Me neither!! NOBODY!! Grabbing Kiko, Maxwell, and Tunsil is about as good a steal you'll ever see. Tunsil easily could have went #1
Could have done without carroo because of what it cost relative to not needing a wr on top of the fact he wasn't productive at all and we have holes up and down the roster.
Well the jury is still out on Carroo. It's way too early to make assumptions. I'm sure the Dolphins have a plan and unfortunately it may mean letting Landry walk.
Seems stupid AF to draft a wr with that much spent on him when you've got three legit starters.
I don't disagree at all. It seemed stupid to trade back to 13 and look what happened with that. Apparently Coach and Grier think very highly of Carroo. It's too early to know tbh. Like I've been saying since we signed Cutler, Parker is going to be his guy meaning Landry ,as much as I hate to say it, may be the odd man out. I hope to the football gods we don't let one of the best players we've had in awhile go but we cannot pay everyone. If Stills is getting 30 mil, Parker will get 40-50 and Jarvis will get god only knows lol Carroo was basically an insurance plan IMO. Yes, a very expensive insurance plan. Who knows brother? He may be a bada$$
