The Miami Dolphins are preparing for the 2016 season with more than a few surprises, and a couple of first-round draft picks.
Here’s what you need to know on the latest in the Dolphins OTAs and minicamp.1.
Can QB Ryan Tannehill handle the pressure of playing in front of an offensive line that will try to block him all year?
Tanneill said he’s excited to be back in Miami, but he’ll need to get acclimated to the offensive line.
If he does, he should be a difference maker.
Tanneills accuracy will need to improve if he’s going to be a reliable option in the passing game.
Tannes accuracy is a major concern for the Dolphins, and it’s something he’ll have to learn.
Tanning was one of the NFL’s worst passers last season, completing just 59.1 percent of his passes for 5.7 yards per attempt, with two interceptions and a career-low three touchdown passes.
The Dolphins are trying to find Tanneis best receiver, with Dion Sims and rookie Kenny Stills likely to be the top targets.
Tan has struggled in his past two seasons, but his progress has been encouraging.2.
What are the Dolphins’ plans for OTAs?
With the team’s offseason program still in full swing, a lot of players will be out and about.
The team plans to do a couple light workouts during the first two weeks of OTAs before moving into full pads for OTBs and minics.
It will be the first time the team has done the full pads since the 2013 season.
The teams biggest offseason workout, in February, saw 11 players participate.
There are also some new names, such as tackle Jordan Phillips, who joined the team this year after spending time with the Oakland Raiders.
The veteran tackle will join a line that includes second-year guard Dan Williams, third-year tackle Nate Solder, second-round pick Jonathan Martin, second round pick Alex Balducci, and fourth-rounder Nick O’Leary.
The roster also includes undrafted rookie Dontari Poe, a defensive lineman from Michigan State who could start opposite Ryan Tannes starting center.
