Dolphins Wrap 2015 Mandatory Mini Camp
Ndamukong Suh is showing he is everything Miami expected.
The Miami Dolphins closed their 2015 mandatory min camp. It was the first strong look at a revamped roster that features Free Agent Po Bowler DT Ndamukong Suh and first round draft pick WR Devante Parker. The Dolphins head into the 2015 season with lofty expectations after adding an abundance of talent in key areas of need.
The Dolphins will have six weeks off to digest and review what they have observed and learned about the pieces that will become the 2015 Miami Dolphins. That's when the team will launch its official training camp and the 2015 season.
Highlights and Key Moments
QB Ryan Tannehill had a great mini camp. He looked in command of the offense, but more importantly he was accurate and his skills were sharp. Entering his fourth year it all seems to be coming together for him and this could be his break out season.
Ndamukong Suh is A BEAST!
Yes, he is as advertised. Strong, disruptive, dominant. Throughout mini camp Suh was a constant force despite being double teamed constantly. He was in the backfield, he was fast and he appears to b exactly what the team needed when it signed the prize of Free Agency. With the addition of CJ Mosley, the defensive line should be the strength of the team.
The Hickey Effect
When the team gave Dennis Hickey control of personnel it was hoping that the quality of talent, particularly through the draft would improve. Well this year's class could have an immediate impact on the field. Converted WR Tony Lippett could be the surprise of the group as he made play after play. His height and nose for the ball could vault him into the starting line up. WR Devante Parker is as advertised as well. Great physical talent and hard working he will be on the field when the team opens the 2015 season. Great showings by DT Jordan Phillips, DB Bobby McCain, and RB Jay Ajayi show a potential that Dolphin fans have not seen in years.
It is still early
Nothing matters at this point as there is only so much you can tell in shorts and t-shirts. There is still months of REAL camp and REAL evaluation to go through. And that means the inevitable injuries, and disappointments. But it also means the usual hidden gems that come from it. But there is no denying the air of expectation around this newer, better version of the Miami Dolphins. That is based on the improved talent and with what we have seen so far the expectations are well deserved.
