Reacting to Jalen Ramsey, and What's Next

Holy moly. I was just watching some YouTube when I got a text from my dad, saying Ramsey was now part of the Fin Franchise. Not only did I scream, I also lost my mind on twitter just a bit. Not only that, but for a third and Hunter Long!!! A crazy morning rivaling some of the best, as Ramsey now is going to help transform one of the league's most anemic defense into a real contender with the help of X, Jaelan Phillips, Emmanuel Ogbah, Bradley Chubb, Brandon Jones, Kader Kohou, Christian Wilkins, Jevon Holland, and Zach Sieler. A scary sight especially with Vic Fangio at the helm, and opposing QB's and offenses will be trembling.

What's Next?

Well, to be frank, the offseason. Free agency tampering begins tomorrow and expect the Dolphins to look at two key positions: LB, and OL. It would also be a matter of resigning free agents, plenty of which are scheduled to hit the open market by Wednesday. On cheap 1-2 year deals, I personally and could see Miami bring back: RB Raheem Mostert, RB Jeff Wilson Jr., WRs River Cracraft and Trent Sherfield, OL Brandon Shell, LBs Duke Riley and AVG, and CB Nik Needham. A part of the core from the previous year which happened to be very experienced and played well allows all these players to be resigned to show more of their worth.

Offseason Moves

Yes, the Dolphins have already made a big splash, but they also would need a few more smaller splashes to continue the offseason. In that, I believe the Dolphins will sign former Bills S Jordan Poyer to a 2-year deal, essentially freeing him from the confines of Buffalo. Not only that, but I think the best fit for the Dolphins would be the former 49er, Mike McGlinchey to help beef up Tua's blindside, as he has shown constant improvement throughout the last few years. Finally, the least likely of these moves, would be signing LB Tremaine Edmunds. A young buck, Edmunds is a cornerstone LB, but there is a chance the Dolphins chose to pursue a different LB as well as saving cap along the way. However, if the Fins get the Poyer deal done quick enough, expect there to be a bit of push from Poyer to help nab his former teammate.


Finally, we have reached the part of the draft. The Dolphins are left with just 4 picks, and accordingly, I have made my own mock draft. First off, I traded Cedrick Wilson, a 2024 6th, and 52nd overall pick, and in return, received the 40th pick from the New Orleans Saints. Using that pick, I selected Jahmyr Gibbs, a RB from Bama. With my final 3 picks, I selected Brake Freeland (OL - BYU), Davis Allen (TE - Clem), and Mohamoud Diabete (LB-Utah).

In the end, I hope the Dolphins make this a memorable offseason. Please note that everything above is my own opinion and is not reflective of the Miami Dolphins organization.
