This is a moderated phorum for the CIVILIZED discussion of the Miami Dolphins. In this phorum, there are rules and moderators to make sure you abide by the rules. The moderators for this phorum are JC and Colonel.
"Sewell has excellent get-off at the line of scrimmage as a run blocker, and he carries charged momentum into his first block. Additionally, Sewell has otherworldly balance amidst contact. Some linemen take themselves out of plays if they can’t control their body, but Sewell is controlled and calculated with how he directs his frame.
Lots of Sewell’s eye-catching run blocking traits also display themselves in the passing game. Just as Sewell carries exceptional balance as a run blocker, his center of gravity is stable as a pass blocker as well. Sewell plays with stellar leverage, and his fast and powerful hands allow him to neutralize blockers on the outside."
Next to QB #1 offensive position
Here are the guys up front protecting your most valuable asset from the edge rushers. Nowadays it’s not just the blind side; the right tackle position is just as valuable in today’s NFL because of the athleticism coming from both edges on defense. Offensive tackles can really make or break an offense. You look at successful teams like the Patriots and Saints, who invest resources in offensive tackles through free agency and the draft. Then you look at the teams who have struggled to produce anything on offense, like the Giants and the Cardinals, and a swinging door would be more effective than their offensive tackles.
The Trenches. Its the only reason we are even looking at the playoffs this season.
Oh Definitely 2-3 receiver's this off season for sure. Wilson should be back and can replace Grant. We have 2 #1's. After Sewell if hes available definitely the best receiver available. Then address the Running back with one of the #2's.
If Sewell gets taken by the Jets , Then we rape a team desperate for a QB. Probably get another #1 for next year again.
How many times was Tua sacked? 4 times. The best receiver in the NFL .....add a second to him and he wont solve that.
You give him time for his rookie eyes to develop see the field he will hit any receiver. And I'm not against a receiver in the first round just not #2 when The Best Lineman to walk the planet might be up for grabs.
How can you say we have a good oline? Its not the worst in the NFL anymore true.....but its far from good. We picked bad Prospects. Its like saying why are you wanting a New QB? We been picking one for years and it hasn't worked. Your logic is screwed up with you trying to rationalize what you want.
A Dominant lineman of Sewells caliber instantly makes the entire offense better. I'll repeat myself from my last post in another thread:
"What your not trying to understand is that a Lineman like Sewell instantly upgrades every position on the Oline. INSTANTLY not a few yrs down the road. This guy is Plug and play. AND he can dominate on both sides of the pocket. FOLLOW ME CLOSELY HERE SAM........
Many guards cant switch both sides and be effective. Like a boxer they have a dominant side they are just better at. Like a switch hitter...... Sewell Dominates anywhere on the line. We have a LEFTY QB. He can protect his blind side AND ......stay with me here Sam.........Can switch sides if he gets hurt . This guy will make any Running back like Gaskins , and receiver like Parker instantly better. He will open holes, stretch the field on running plays and pass protect like the elite ......ON DAY 1. Not a few yrs down the road.
Instant HUGE upgrade accross the board. Cant miss. This is the kind of players I totally back taking in the first round. Cant see the Jets passing on him unless they want to dump Sam Darnell."
A dominant receiver will always only be as good as his QB. And a QB and running back will always only be as good as his Oline.

RE: Every receiver we have RB's too is also instantly better with Waddle, Robinson and Harris/Ettienne on the field as well.
If Not we draft down collect additional picks to a QB hungry team.
We need to address the Oline / Running back/ receiver's with the first 4 picks. Then its Defense End/ safety or Linebacker. Add some depth in the off season as well.
#1 MIAMI agenda .......Numero Uno for us. The MOST important thing we need to address........
Wait for it.........
Because NOTHING ELSE works without it.......NOTHING........
A New Offensive coordinator. Someone who is going to be here for at least 3 seasons. We need to build consistency. Did you see how out of Sync TUA was on many plays? He needs a whole off season with a New HC. Someone who can train him , coach him , give him ways to succeed. No ones perfect. Identify his strengths and weaknesses. Get players that help him and what hes good at. Develop plays around them.
And you know who may be the best Offensive Coordinator available?
Adam Gase. Stay with me ............
Hes not head Coach material . Thats for sure.
But he loves that playbook. Take all that defensive stress off him because he really doesn't have a clue defensivley....... And he's a weirdo genius type Offensive guy. Hes a QB whisperer. He had Tannehill on a 7 game winning streak and helped make him the QB he is today.
Let him melt away into his Offensive playbook.....he is kooky guy for sure. But strip away all those other responsibilities a Head Coach has ....just leave him alone with his playbook....He will get the best out of TUA.
Either way a Ne OC in mandatory if we are to continue getting better.
