2019 NFL Draft Preview: Running Backs
 
After trading Jay Ajayi  to the Eagles last season http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/t.j.-mcdonald-jersey ,  the Dolphins gave the starting running back role to Kenyan Drake and man, did he  not disappoint. Not only do I think that Drake has a chance to be one of the  best running backs in the league, I believe he can be one of the most complete  backs in the league.He’s a 3 down back that has star potential.Now, on top of  that, add the ageless Frank Gore and the young bruiser Kallen Ballage and the  Dolphins have a stacked RB corp with solid depth.I realize that the Dolphins  will probably not be in the market for drafting a RB but for the sake of this  preview (I know I didn’t finish before the season started, I am sorry) lets dive  into this RB class.Rodney Anderson, Oklahoma (Junior)Anderson has been my  highest rated RB so far.I think he can do it all - fantastic start-stop speed,  good vision, explosive and can catch the ball out of the  backfield.Unfortunately, he just suffered a season ending knee injury last week  so we won’t see him this year.It’s really a shame because this kid has NFL  talent - it’s going to be tough for him though, because prior to this injury he  has struggled to stay healthy.Mark D. Smith-USA TODAY SportsBryce Love, Stanford  (Senior)Love is a shifty, grity guy who can take it to the house.He’s got good  vision, he’s a good receiver, great cutting ability and has game changing  speed.His biggest problem will be his size and teams will knock him for  that.However, I don’t see that as a big con for me; I like his style of play and  I believe he could be a deadly weapon on any offense. Kirby Lee-USA TODAY  SportsDamien Harris, Alabama(Senior)Harris is not a flashy guy, but he’s a  tough Womens  Vincent Taylor Jersey , hard and powerful running back.He’s not  going to blow you away with height, weight or speed but he catches well, runs  hard and is tough to bring down.I am not sure how high his ceiling is but I know  where his floor is.He’s a guy who could contribute in the NFL right now.John  David Mercer-USA TODAY SportsBennie Snell Jr. Kentucky (Junior)Snell is a mack  truck.He’s a thick, hard hitting back that is surprising fast for his size.He  doesn’t have game breaking speed or agility but for a 230 lb back it’s pretty  impressive.He’s also got pretty good burst for a big back.I like his decision  making and drive he displays when running with the ball.He started this season  well and I expect him to have a big year.Mark Zerof-USA TODAY SportsOther RB  ProspectsDavid Montgomery Iowa St. (Junior)Devin Singletary, FAU (Junior)Mike  Weber, Ohio St. (Senior)Justice Hill, Oklahoma St. (Junior)Myles Gaskin,  Washington (Senior)LJ Scott, Michigan St. (Senior)Travon McMillan, Colorado St.  (Senior)Dolphins at Jets: 5 key players for Miami in Week 2 The Miami Dolphins  will face off against the New York Jets on Sunday in a Week 2 meeting between  AFC East rivals. Both teams are coming off of wins, with Miami beating the  Tennessee Titans 27-20 this past Sunday and the Jets dispatching the Detroit  Lions 48-17 on Monday night, and will be looking to continue a fast start to the  2018 regular season. A lot will have to go right for both clubs, as they look to  prove they are better than the preseason pundits predicted.For the Dolphins,  several players need to step up and have big games. Miami has to get out to an  early lead, then let their defense get after rookie quarterback Sam Darnold,  who, after a 16-for-21 for 198 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, is  riding high and has the New York fan base feeling good about themselves.  Pressuring the rookie should allow Miami’s secondary to continue to pull in  interceptions Authentic  Jason Sanders Jersey , building off safety Reshad Jones’ two picks  last week, with a third interception coming from linebacker Kiko Alonso.These  five players need to have big games on Sunday:1. Kenyan DrakeDrake was good last  week and needs to continue that this week. He and Frank Gore were able to gash  the Titans’ defense early, at one point averaging over nine yards a carry and  making it look easy. The Dolphins used Drake in a multitude of ways, including  lining him up at receiver. Getting production out of Drake early will allow the  offense to open up more, especially with the play action pass, and Miami can get  to that lead they need.2. Xavien HowardThe Jets believe they have their  franchise quarterback in Darnold, and he has all the confidence in the world  right now after bouncing back from a pick-six on his first NFL pass attempt. It  is time for Howard to show Darnold that one good game as a rookie does not  define a career. Howard has continually shown that he has the potential to be a  true star in the league, a shutdown cornerback that can take away a side of the  field. This week, with Darnold likely looking to prove he is what Jets fans saw  last week, Howard should get a chance to prove he is the cornerback Dolphins  fans and South Florida media believes him to be.3. Josh Sitton, et al.Sitton  gets singled out here because he was “banged up” against the Titans and is now  on the injury report, but really this is the offensive line as a whole. The  Dolphins really need Sitton to be healthy so they can continue to keep the same  starting five offensive linemen they have had since April’s offseason training  program began. This is the first year in the last several in which it feels like  the Dolphins finally have an NFL-caliber offensive line, and they showed it last  week. They were able to create some beautiful pockets for Tannehill and they  were able to open holes for Drake and Gore. That must continue this week,  hopefully with Sitton; if Sitton cannot play, Ted Larsen or Isaac Asiata (pulled  up from the practice squad) make the most sense to be his replacement. Miami’s  offense will only be as successful as their offensive line, so those five men  need to be big on Sunday.4. Raekwon McMillanMcMillan now has a true taste off  the NFL after missing all of his rookie season with an ACL tear. The Dolphins  need their middle linebacker to start playing up to his potential. He struggled  at times this past Sunday, which is understandable for a young player, but the  Jets will take the ball right up the middle and challenge McMillan http://www.miamidolphinsteamonline.com/jerome-baker-jersey ,  so he needs to be ready and show he is the right choice to man the middle of  Miami’s defense.5. Mike GesickiAt this point, it feels like a given that Miami’s  first-round draft pick, safety/cornerback Minkah Fitzpatrick, will have a big  game and be a playmaker. Now, it is time for the team’s second-round pick, tight  end Gesicki, to do the same. He caught one pass for 11 yards last week, and  should have had a touchdown pass if the ball did not slip out of/be under thrown  from Tannehill’s hand. Gesicki gives Miami something they have not had in a long  time, a true seam-threat, red-zone target tight end. This week, they need to get  him involved in the passing game early so he can find his rhythm. It is not all  on play calling, however, as Gesicki was slowed at the line of scrimmage several  times by the Titans’ defense, either with a defensive lineman or a linebacker  lining up on top of him and making sure to get a solid jam on the rookie. He has  to be able to shed that quickly and move into his route.
