Boehm was a very good center for the Colts last year. Kelly got injured and he ended up playing several games. Boehm actually graded out better than Kelly and was one of the better performing centers in the NFL last year. Dolphins might just have there 2020 starting center already on the roster.Thanks for the ratings @Kingdom Come …. and thanks for slipping them $20 to include our players @circumstances .
Very glad to see Deiter ranked so highly.
Davis, considering almost no time to prep for the hardest position on the line and opposite side, acquitted himself quite well. Nice to see Kilgore also looking serviceable.
We know we're exposing new and under-prepared parts like Davenport and Isadora, soon to be joined by Boehm. When the rookie and last-minute-LT are your veteran anchors … that speaks volumes. It will get better.
Given how little prep time McMillan had, that is good, but make no mistake about it … our LB's were atrocious.
I'm sure another bad grade isn't going to derail the Baker hype-train, but he really has a long way to go before he becomes an acceptable run defender. You can't always make sacks and big plays, but fundamentally sound run defense and knowing your assignment is required as a LB in this system. It's a new defense, and it'll take a while to learn … but Baker needs to put in the work learning the playbook and practicing run defense. I keep waiting for him to start improving in that area, and that's something we need to watch closely this season. Hopefully, it will be one of the shining examples of progress we expect to see from this season. Eguavoen (sp?) had some flashes, and gets a bit of a pass because he's so new to everything … but he also needs to work on learning his run fits.
