Every season it seems like the Miami Dolphins are at a crossroads. It's been an unusual offseason so far, one where Adam Gase seems intent on getting his type of player. That leads to this major question. Does he feel good enough about Ryan Tannehill moving forward? That question really defines the direction of this team. With the Jets positioned to get one of the top three quarterbacks from the draft, the Bills vying to get up for one and with the Patriots somehow, once again, with a slew of early picks, this seems like a huge offseason for Miami. If both the Jets and Bills hit on the quarterback position, does Miami get left in the rear view window? I think it comes down to two things. 1. Build Around Tannehill I was reminded recently that Tannehill went 7-1 in his last eight starts with Miami before the injury ended his season. Part of that success was due to the emergence of Jay Ajayi as he strung together a fantastic stretch with three 200-yard games. So it's obvious that Tannehill can be successful with a strong running game. This draft features some real talent at the position. Barkley figures to go before Miami picks, but a player like Guice could fit the bill. He's the type that the team could dictate the running game with. Perhaps the Dolphins could get him with a trade down. One of the top tight ends in round two and, at least on paper, Miami could finally have a complete offense with enough weapons and a decent offensive line to be successful. In this plan, the Dolphins draft a developmental quarterback maybe someone like White or Falk in round three. 2. Upgrade at Quarterback This is the more difficult solution. There's no guarantees that any of the top quarterbacks in the draft will be an upgrade over Tannehill. Without trading up, Rudolph and/or Jackson both figure to be there at #11, although that's not a foregone conclusion either. I like Rudolph quite a bit, but not sure he has any traits that are above average, maybe his deep arm accuracy. He isn't necessarily athletic, but makes good decisions on when to run and gets some yardage. Jackson has elite athletic ability. He reminds me of Kaepernick. Nice deep arm, can get chunk yards with his legs, but won't beat you if forced to stay in the pocket. Could be a ROP star, adding a whole new dimension there. If Miami wants to trade up for one of the top four, not only will it be costly but they likely have less ammunition than Buffalo. What approach do you prefer?
