The Miami Dolphins are 4-4 with a big chance to make a stand on Monday Night Football and shift the focus back onto the field. They take on a weak Tampa Bay team, and a thorough pummeling of the Bucs would put Miami over .500 and help with the media circus.

This Saturday there are a number of huge games in college football which will highlight some major talents who will be playing on Sundays. The Dolphins have a few positions to focus on, and I’ll highlight some intriguing prospects at those positions here.

Florida defensive tackle Dominique Easley is out for the season after tearing the ACL in his right knee during practice this week.  The six foot two, 285 pound Senior was expected to be in high demand when the draft rolled around next May and was a potential Dolphins target with Randy Starks and Paul Soliai each playing out the final years of their current contracts.   (more…)

The Miami Dolphins are off to a great start in the 2013 NFL season, looking strong in two road victories over Cleveland and Indianapolis. But they are now entering a tough stretch of the season where a lot of questions about the team will get answered.

1.  Jacksonville – Jadaveon Clowney, DE, South Carolina
Jacksonville will have the toughest decision to make, franchise pass rusher, or franchise QB?  I’m predicting Clowney on this one with an eye towards Stephen Morris in round two.   (more…)

College Football Weekend News and Notes

Monday, September 9th, 2013

Watching Florida at Miami this weekend gave me the privilege of watching Florida DT Dominque Easley dominate in a way that few defensive tackles can do.  Easley spent as much time in the Miami backfield as Miami QB Stephen Morris did almost as if Easley was the one calling the snap counts in the Miami huddles.  The afternoon saw Oregon travel to Virginia and hybrid running back D’Anthony Thomas put on a display of speed that’s become customary for him since he arrived in Eugene capped by Notre Dame at Michigan and a couple of stand outs that could be useful in Miami next season.  Here we’ll take a look back at the prospects I saw this weekend that could fill some needs for the Dolphins in 2014 as well as others that stepped up and stood out regardless of need.   (more…)
