2020 NFL Scouting Combine schedule: Arrivals, workouts, TV coverage, more

Aaron Doster-USA TODAY Sports Welcome to the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine. It is the time of year when NFL prospects descind on Indianapolis in hopes of catching the eye of league scouts, executives, and coaches. Working out in their underwear, the players will conduct a series of strength, agility, speed, and position drills, all with the ultimate goal of hearing their name called during the 2020 NFL Draft. The players will begin to report to Indianapolis today, with a rotation of players continuing through March 1. Interesting for this year is, some of the workouts will be held at night,...

2020 NFL Mock Draft: A funny thing happened when Dolphins pass on Tua Tagovailoa

2020 NFL Mock Draft: A funny thing happened when Dolphins pass on Tua Tagovailoa

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ Today, I decided I was going to run a mock draft over at FanSpeak, using their On The Clock mock draft simulator. I used the premium version of the simulator, but I went into the draft with the idea that I was not making an trades. My only thought was to do this draft without the Miami Dolphins selecting Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth-overall selection. When Miami came up on the clock after the first four picks, I was happy because Tagovailoa was still on the board, so I could see exactly what would happen. I used Miami’s pick to grab Ohio...

Dolphins win NFL’s ‘Huddle for 100’ volunteer competition

Dolphins win NFL’s ‘Huddle for 100’ volunteer competition

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports The NFL on Thursday announced the results of their “Huddle for 100” initiative, attempting to have 1 million people volunteer 100 minutes of their time to reach a goal of 100 million minutes donated. Launched at the NFL Draft in April 2019 as a celebration of the league’s 100th season, the initiative easily surpassed the goal, reaching a total of 397,253,630 minutes donated. The drive ended with Super Bowl LIV in Miami. Of the nearly 400 million minutes of service the Miami Dolphins, their coaches, players, and fans were responsible for a league-high...

LaDainian Tomlinson: Melvin Gordon ‘ends up in Miami’

LaDainian Tomlinson: Melvin Gordon ‘ends up in Miami’

Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports The 2019 season did not go as Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon envisioned. After a holdout to start the season, Gordon returned to find the Chargers were moving to Austin Ekeler as their primary rusher. Gordon finished the season with a career-low rushing total, just 612 yards, and now heads into free agency hoping to land with another team willing to pay big for a two-time Pro Bowl running back who will turn 27 this spring. The Miami Dolphins need to find a running back to lead a group of younger players, and they have the most salary cap...

2020 NFL Free Agency: Wide receivers

2020 NFL Free Agency: Wide receivers

Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports The third in our series of soon-to-be free agent previews, the wide receivers are in the spotlight today. Following after the quarterbacks and the halfbacks, the receivers have some big names who could be hitting the free agent market this offseason. That said, the Miami Dolphins do not seem to be in a position where they will - nor should - be looking for a veteran wide receiver. The Dolphins head into 2020 with DeVante Parker set as their number one receiver after a breakout 2019 campaign. Preston Williams should be the team’s number two receiver,...

Justin Herbert moving up Dolphins draft board as Tua Tagovailoa injury concerns continue?

Justin Herbert moving up Dolphins draft board as Tua Tagovailoa injury concerns continue?

Photo by Joe Scarnici/ The Miami Dolphins will select Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with the fifth-overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Or maybe with the third-overall pick if they trade up with the Detroit Lions. Or possibly with the second-overall pick if they move up to the Washington Redskins’ position. Whatever the case, the Dolphins will land Tagovailoa, as everyone, everywhere on the internet will tell you. Except, it sounds like the Dolphins are not as sure as everyone else. The Dolphins, according to a report, may be leaning toward Oregon quarterback Justin Herbert over...

2020 Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database 2.0

2020 Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database 2.0

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ The 2020 NFL Scouting Combine kicks off tomorrow with the first groups of players arriving in Indianapolis. Before the players start getting measured, tested, and interviewed, we take another look at the 2020 Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database, collecting projected first-round picks for the Dolphins from nearly 60 different mocks. As before, Tua Tagovailoa dominates the projections of Miami’s fifth-overall pick - though we are starting to see more mocks template a trade up to ensure they acquire their franchise quarterback. A couple of mocks have Miami using the...

2020 NFL Mock Draft: PFF projects four picks in first two rounds for Miami Dolphins

2020 NFL Mock Draft: PFF projects four picks in first two rounds for Miami Dolphins

Erich Schlegel-USA TODAY Sports At this point, it feels like trying to be suspenseful with the Miami Dolphins’ first pick in any 2020 NFL Mock Draft is just a waste of time. You see, nearly every projection being published has the Dolphins selecting Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa with their first selection. The good news about this year’s mock draft season is, the Dolphins do not have just one first-round pick. You may see Tagovailoa’s name next to the Dolphins in every single mock draft you read, but there are more picks for Miami to be able to make a mock draft worth...

2020 NFL Free Agents: Running backs

2020 NFL Free Agents: Running backs

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports We are five weeks from the start of free agency in the NFL. While a lot will change between now and then, with franchise and transition tags applied, restricted free agent tenders extended, re-signings, and cut players, we still can get a fairly good idea of who could be available on the open market when the new league year begins. We started this series a couple of days ago with a look at the soon-to-be free agent quarterbacks. We continue that today with a look at the running backs who could be on the market, with an eye towards who the Miami Dolphins could...

Tua Tagovailoa hip injury rehab progresses with positive CT scan results

Tua Tagovailoa hip injury rehab progresses with positive CT scan results

Butch Dill-USA TODAY Sports Three months after surgery to repair a fractured and dislocated hip, former Alabama and future NFL quarterback Tua Tagovailoa received good news this week, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. Tagovailoa, the presumed primary target for the Miami Dolphins in April’s 2020 NFL Draft, had a CT scan on Monday, with Rapoport reporting the results were “as positive as possible” and that the fracture is healed, the hip has good range of motion, and everything seems to be on track for a return to football activities in about a month. Tagovailoa will attend...

NFL Mock Draft 2020: SB Nation has Miami moving up

NFL Mock Draft 2020: SB Nation has Miami moving up

John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports The Miami Dolphins are selecting Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa in the latest 2020 NFL Mock Draft from SB Nation’s Dan Kadar. At this point, that seems like a standard sentence to write about any mock draft on the web. Tagovailoa to the Dolphins seems like fate at this point, with not a lot of disagreement from analysts, experts, or fans (though there are plenty of vocal fans who are against the move). Except, in this week’s SB Nation mock, Kadar does not have Miami using the fifth overall pick on Tagovailoa. He sees them moving up to get the...

2020 NFL Free Agency: Quarterbacks

2020 NFL Free Agency: Quarterbacks

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports The NFL calendar is slowly moving toward the NFL Scouting Combine, which will then be followed by free agency. While Josh Houtz started his rankings of prospects today with his top five quarterbacks, I will spend the next couple of weeks working through the top available free agents - and will start in the same place Houtz did, taking a look at the top quarterback options available this offseason. While I do not think the Miami Dolphins will be in the market for a free agent quarterback, instead sticking with Ryan Fitzpatrick, Josh Rosen, and a drafted...

You get out of your car and feel the sun beating down on you, the humidity sticking to you, and the slight scent of saltwater on the air. There is no place like pulling into the parking lots at Hard Rock Stadium before a Miami Dolphins game. The only team with a history that includes a Perfect Season, a team that once went undefeated for a decade against a division rival, a team that has the biggest single-season turn-around in league history, and a team that, in aqua and orange, looks like no other franchise in the league. That is your team. That is your home. And that is the passion...

How should the Dolphins address the running back position? It should not be on the cheap

How should the Dolphins address the running back position? It should not be on the cheap

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports A couple of days ago, we ran a Twitter poll asking how the Miami Dolphins should address the running back position this offseason (thanks Josh Houtz). The results came back with a plurality choosing to see Miami attack a clear need using the Draft (49 percent). That was followed by using both the Draft and free agency (37 percent) while just 14 percent selected using free agency as the answer to the running back question. Miami has had a problem at running back for several years. As soon as they appear to have the answer - Lamar Miller, Jay Ajayi, Kenyan...

Minkah Fitzpatrick unhappy with singular role for Steelers

Minkah Fitzpatrick unhappy with singular role for Steelers

Philip G. Pavely-USA TODAY Sports Stop me if you have heard this before: Minkah Fitzpatrick is unhappy with how he is being used. Seems familiar does it not? Except, this time, it seems to be the exact opposite of the issues he had with the Miami Dolphins. Fitzpatrick, now a Pro Bowl player with the Pittsburgh Steelers, complained about being misused by the Dolphins, who were looking to create mismatches and play him all across the field, and is now complaining that he is stuck playing only as a free safety with the Steelers. Fitzpatrick wanted out of Miami because they were looking to...
