90-in-90 Breaking Down the Miami Dolphins Roster: Michael Liedtke

New, comments

Breaking down the Miami Dolphins' 90-man roster over 90 days. Today, we look at offensive lineman Michael Liedtke.

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.

MICHAEL LIEDTKE

2014 Review:

2014 was Liedtke's final season at Illinois State.

From the Illinois State Athletics page:

Started all 15 games at left tackle … three-year starter on the offensive line … named MVFC Offensive Lineman of the Week (Nov. 15), after he graded out at 96 percent and helped the Redbirds rush for 293 yards and a season-best four touchdowns on the ground in a 45-26 win at South Dakota … key member of the offensive line unit that led the way for Coprich, who led the FCS and the MVFC in rushing yards (2,274) and rushing touchdowns (27) ... also aided Coprich in rushing for over 100 yards in 14 out of 15 games, setting a school and league mark for consecutive 100-plus yard games to start a season.

Why he might progress:

I don't have much to go off here, can't find much on Liedtke.

I'd consider making the practice squad as progress, but if he makes the final roster, good for him.

Why he might regress:

No harm in not making the roster as an UDFA.

Chances he makes the 53-man roster:

Don't expect much from Liedtke. Like I said above, I can't find much on him. Could be one of the teams early cuts, but if he shows enough potential, he could end up on the practice squad.

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