90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Tim Semisch

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at tight end Tim Semisch.

Pat Lovell-USA TODAY Sports

We bring back our annual look at the Miami Dolphins' roster heading into training camp, a series we call 90-in-90. Over the next 90 days (or a few more as roster changes happen), we will take a look at each individual player on the roster, review what they did in 2014 either in the NFL or in college, then take a look at how they might progress or regress this season, and the chances that player will make the roster.

TIM SEMISCH

2014 Review:

2014 was Semisch's final season at Northern Illinois.

He had a lackluster college career.  Semisch caught only 10 passes for 100 yards and three touchdowns in his college career at Northern Illinois. He played primarily on special teams as a senior. His best season came in 2013, when he had seven receptions for 84 yards and a touchdown.

Why he might progress:

He's 6-foot-8, 267 pounds. He's a huge target to throw to. A HUGE redzone threat.

Special teams experience should help.

Why he might regress:

Lackluster receiving stats. I'm not sure what the Norther Illinois offense was like, but a man the size of Semisch should have seen a lot of targets.

Needs to show the team he can be a receiving threat.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Semisch appeared mostly on special teams in college and that could help him land a roster spot. Teams are always looking for special teams players and there is always a chance Semisch could develop into a no.2 tight end. However, I don't think he beats out Arthur Lynch for the final tight end spot. Semisch could end up on the practice squad.

So how do you think Tim Semisch will do this season? Does he make your roster? Feel free to discuss below.
