Bleacher Report NFL power rankings see long uphi

ll battle for Dolphins in 2018 If you have read anything this offseason about the Miami Dolphins written by any of the national media sources Davon Godchaux Jersey , you probably could guess how a 2018 NFL Power Rankings released by Bleacher Report just before the start of the preseason would go for the Dolphins. You would be exactly right.And, yes, I know many of you will write me about how power rankings are dumb in the first place. Yet, we all love to read them and debate them. You see, on Friday, Kyle Newport from B/R released his “Where each team stands as the season approaches” power rankings. Near the top, it consists of the teams you would expect: the Philadelphia Eagles, the New England Patriots, the Los Angeles Rams, the Minnesota Vikings, and the Pittsburgh Steelers make up the top five. But then the scrolling starts. And it really does not stop.You have to scroll past the Houston Texans, who need a quarterback to return from an ACL tear and have a spectacular season and are hoping their star defensive end can actually play this year. They get the benefit of the doubt in landing at 13th in the rankings.You have to scroll past the Dallas Cowboys, who will be betting on a rebound for Dak Prescott this season after a fall off during his second year in the league. They are 14th in the league.You have to scroll past the Cincinnati Bengals, who somehow still have Marvin Lewis as their coach, a surprise around most of the league. They are 16th in the rankings.You have to scroll past the New York Giants, who had the second-worst record in the NFL in 2017 and are hoping Eli Manning, who was benched for a game last year, will be better this year. They come in at 17 in these power rankings.You have to scroll past the Denver Broncos, who are betting on Case Keenum as their starter this year, are24th.You have to scroll past the Cleveland Browns, who have won once in the last 32 two seasons, but manage to land at 26.You have to scroll past the Buffalo Bills, who got rid of their starting quarterback from last year , after breaking a 17-year drought from the playoffs, and will now rely on either A.J. McCarron or rookie Josh Allen under center, but are 27th in the rankings.You have to scroll past the New York Jets, who still do not have a clear starting quarterback, with Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater the likely opening-day starter, but rookie Sam Darnold most likely taking over at some point this year. Yet, they are ranked 28th.Hey, there are the Dolphins. They come in with a 31st ranking. Only the Indianapolis Colts, who have a quarterback who, until recently, had not been able to throw an NFL football in a year because of his shoulder, are behind the Dolphins. Miami’s 31st ranking is explained by Newport writing:There is not enough around Tannehill to make Miami a contender. There is not a running back who led the league in rushing yards after being made the starter near the end of the season. Oh, wait, there is Kenyan Drake. Add Drake to Gore, who has not rushed for less than 850 yards in a season since 2005, and the Dolphins appear to be pretty solid at running back - without mentioning rookie Kalen Ballage.There is not a set of receivers that have the high-potential number one DeVante Parker (who admittedly needs to actually show up for the entire season), Kenny Stills providing a deep threat do-everything type, and Amendola giving the team the slot receiver to replace Landry. They also do not have Albert Wilson as another deep threat and Jakeem Grant who is yet another deep threat who can play all over the offense and, despite his size, creates mismatches from his speed and vertical.There is not a highly-touted rookie tight end in Mike Gesicki, along with solid tight ends MarQueis Gray and A.J. Debry.There just is nothing around Tannehill this year other than Gore and Amendola. Guess the Dolphins should just quit.I guess your point that power rankings are dumb fits in this case.Miami Dolphins depth chart 2018 predictions ahead of Preseason Week 4 The Miami Dolphins will finish their 2018 preseason schedule tonight when they visit the Atlanta Falcons. After the game, the team will have to start making some tough decisions, with the league’s 53-man roster limit deadline coming at 4pm Eastern on Saturday. How will Miami’s regular season roster look when that deadline is reached?Through the first three games Womens Daniel Kilgore Jersey , the Dolphins have been fairly vanilla. They showed a little more during last week’s game against the Baltimore Ravens, but still are not going all out as of yet. Tonight’s game should be a showcase of the depth of the team and the players the coaching staff want to see one last time before the cuts are made. As for the starters, expect a cameo appearance from a few of them, but none of that group are expected to play any meaningful time.As the final preseason game approaches, we update our depth chart prediction for the team:Offense (25)Quarterback (3)Ryan TannehillDavid FalesBrock OsweilerI started this projection with a prediction I do not want to see happen. The Dolphins at this point appear to be considering allowing the backup quarterback competition to spill into the regular season, which would mean both Fales and Osweiler are on the roster. I still think Fales is the ultimate winner as Tannehill’s understudy, but at this point, I think both could make the roster just because there does not seem to be a consensus either way.Running backs (4)Kenyan DrakeFrank GoreKalen BallageSenorise PerryNo changes to the running back position. Drake, Gore, and Ballage are locked into the top three positions, and Perry should make the team as a returner and special teams player. Wide receivers (5)DeVante ParkerKenny StillsDanny AmendolaAlbert WilsonJakeem GrantThere are plenty of players who are fighting for a sixth receiver spot, including Leonte Carroo, Isaiah Ford, and Francis Owusu. This used to be Ford’s position, but he has disappeared in the preseason and Miami does not appear to need a sixth wide out at this point. If one of the group dominates tonight, they could claim a roster spot, but for now, the Dolphins head into the season with just five receivers (on my projection).Tight ends (4)Mike GesickiMarQueis GrayDurham SmytheA.J. DerbyNo change here. I nearly removed Derby, because I do not think he is locked onto the roster, Miami has only kept three tight ends the last few years, and they could use the roster spot somewhere else, but yesterday I predicted in my bubble watch article that the team would keep him, and I am not ready to change that. Offensive linemen (9)Laremy TunsilJosh SittonDaniel KilgoreJesse DavisJa’Wuan JamesSam YoungTed LarsenIsaac AsiataJake BrendelThe starting offensive line has been set for the entire summer. It is the guys behind them that are question marks and Josh Sitton Jersey , after Saturday’s Ravens game, that has not changed much. I still went with Young, Larsen, Asiata, and Brendel, though any of those players (minus Young and maybe Larsen) could be left off the roster in favor of someone else. Asiata has been quiet this preseason, which probably is a good thing when you are talking about an offensive lineman. Brendel has barely been able to practice, but the team seems to like him and he can provide depth whenever his calf is fully healed.Defense (25)Defensive ends (6)Cameron WakeRobert QuinnAndre BranchCharles HarrisWilliam HayesCameron MalveauxThe Dolphins intend to rotate defensive linemen a lot this year, which means they are likely going to keep a lot of linemen. Hayes when healthy, gives them the flexibility to play defensive end and defensive tackle, while the top four on the depth chart are all pass rushers and Malveaux is a developing option in the rotation. No changes here from last projection.Defensive tackle (4)Davon GodchauxAkeem SpenceJordan PhillipsVincent TaylorNo changes here as well. Kendall Langford could make a case tonight for a roster spot, in which case Malveaux probably falls off the roster, but for now, I do not think he makes the team. That leaves four defensive tackles plus Hayes.Linebackers (6)Kiko AlonsoRaekwon McMillanJerome BakerStephone AnthonyMike HullChase AllenA slight adjustment to the linebackers sees Poling drop to the practice squad while Allen slides onto the roster. The linebacker group as a whole is a question mark, so this could be - other than maybe McMillan and Alonso - a different looking group by Friday.Cornerbacks (5)Xavien HowardBobby McCainTony LippettTorry McTyerCordrea TankersleyNo changes here. Fiztpatrick could move from the safeties to the cornerbacks on the list, but I think home for him is safety even if he is playing as the primary nickel cornerback. Lippett could be more on the bubble than previously thought, mostly because he is still working his way back from the Achilles injury that cost him all of 2017. Adam Gase is expected to play Lippett as much as possible on Thursday to see if he needs to be on the roster.Safeties (4)Reshad JonesMinkah FitzpatrickT.J. McDonaldWalt AikensNo change. The two strong safeties, the jack-of-all-trades, and the special teams ace.Special Teams (3)John Denney - Long SnapperMatt Haack - PunterJason Sanders - KickerNo change here. Sanders and Greg Joseph enter the final week of the preseason about even in the position battle, which gives the spot to Sanders based on his draft stock.Practice Squad (10)Quentin Poling - LinebackerJalen Davis - CornerbackThomas Duarte - Tight endMike Matthews - CenterBuddy Howell - Running backClaudy Mathieu - Defensive endCornell Armstrong - CornerbackDrew Morgan - Wide receiverJamiyus Pittman - Defensive tackleEric Smith - TackleThe only change here is to add Poling in place of Cayson Collins.
