NFL: Oakland Raiders at Miami Dolphins Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Through the first half of the season, three of the Dolphins rookies have made an impact on this team. Minkah Fitzpatrick always seems to be in the right place and is quietly having a great rookie season. I don’t think much was expected of Jerome Baker this year, but the rookie linebacker was thrust into a starting position and helped seal the victory against the Jets two weeks ago. Meanwhile, Darren Rizzi continues to prove he is one of the best special teams coaches in the NFL with the selection of Jason Sanders. Rizzi got his guy and the rookie kicker has done nothing but impress.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day’s round-up below.
