After a mediocre season where the Dolphins went 7-9, they have apparently chosen to reboot and start from scratch, jettisoning their roster and management. Head coach Adam Gase, as well as starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, are gone. Next year figures to be an ugly season for the Dolphins, but they still need to find value in it. Hiring Brian Flores as the new head coach is a good start, as he’s a guy that seems like a good fit to lead this organization into the next phase of their plan. They must use this year to determine keepers on the team and develop their young talent. Determining some kind of depth chart for the future would be helpful, and to do so they’ll need to answer some questions about it.

Who will be the Dolphins Starting Quarterback to Enter the Season?

As the depth chart stands right now, Ryan Fitzpatrick leads Josh Rosen for the starting quarterback position. Fitzpatrick may be capable of producing some impressive stretches, but he’s still a career journeyman that’s not a long-term answer for this team. However, that doesn’t mean Rosen necessarily is either, as he’s a young quarterback that struggled in his first year with the Cardinals and ultimately hasn’t proven anything. The Dolphins would be wise to get an extended look at both this season. If Rosen struggles and Fitzpatrick plays well, the Dolphins may decide to give up on Rosen and use Fitzpatrick as a bridge quarterback while they search for their guy in the offseason. Conversely, if Rosen plays well, they may decide he’s their quarterback for the future and drop Fitzpatrick.

Are Any of the Dolphins Skill Position Players Franchise Talents?

There’s a reason that the Dolphins are considered one of the least talented teams in the league, and a big reason is that they seem to lack any true franchise player at their skill positions. Guys like Devante Parker, Albert Wilson, and Kenny Stills have all shown flashes but none of them have had a 1000 yard receiving season before. At running back, Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage seem embroiled in a battle for the lead running back, yet neither of them have even had a 150 rushing attempt season. At tight end, the most established player for the Dolphins is Mike Gesicki, who had 202 receiving yards last year. There aren’t any proven players on the Dolphins roster as is, so they need to take this season to decide if any are worth keeping for the long haul.

Is This the Most Uninspiring Defensive Line in the League?

One thing the Dolphins to appear to be set at is their secondary, as guys like Minkah Fitzpatrick, Reshad Jones, and Xavien Howard are all quality players that should ensure Miami’s pass defense remains adequate. Their defensive line however, is far less pretty. Cameron Wake and Ndamukong Suh once formed a formidable combo, but both are gone, leaving behind a group of players that have yet to accomplish anything of note. It’s possible that the defensive line’s best player might already be Christian Wilkins, the player Miami selected with the 13th pick. Outside of him and possibly the two linebackers Raekwon McMillan and Jerome Baker, there doesn’t appear to be any keepers for the future on the defensive line.
