"To talk about today but first breaking news out of miami gardens. The miami dolphins will be without wide receiver willful or for sunday's matchup versus the buffalo bills. The team is calling it. A personal issue and brian flora's even when as far to say there was a possibility for may not suit up the rest of the season. Obviously a lot of unknowns. But what were your thoughts. Jake when you first heard this friday afternoon. Josh first and foremost i mean the seed blake first weekend forever where the dolphins were gonna have a completely clean injury report willful or was the only one who wasn't listed as a full participant in practice on both thursday and friday. But just i do have to say. I think we're kind of over-reacting about this. A little bit will fuller was in the building wednesday. I believe he was actually in the building thursday as well. I'm concerned for some things are bigger than football. I don't necessarily know. I mean ryan floors declined to say preston. Williams who is fully active is going to be playing on sunday. So i think that's more displays being bryant floors as much as odd. This is something that's gonna completely ruin season. I hope that isn't the case. I hope everything is all right for him and you know. We can't really speculate on too much by terms of what's happening on the field. It's gotta be a little disappointing to not see him out there. Yeah and especially because we sat here and we you know we were pretty stoked needed. A podcast on wednesday talked about the impact he could have. You're right where i think. A lot of us are kind of you know thinking the worst year i was actually listening to the press conference. So i mean a little bit of brian. Floors tone is kind of why. I think it might be a little bit more serious but like you said this is bigger than football. So thoughts and prayers with will fuller and you know whether he's back next week or the week after he doesn't play at all. I mean we should all support him and a with anything with the miami dolphins football in general. It's the next man up mentality you know they said like you mentioned preston. Williams was a full go. Could we see some more reps out of him. Will you great you know. We joked about the depth chart not meeting anything. It was the one at the top of that. Depth chart before moore was activated. So i don't know who the spells is going to get more. You know reps. I think we're going to see a big jalen waddell but it hurts when we sat here and said what could impact he can bring and what he can do that offense because if there's any team they need a fuller against it would be the buffalo bills after that dismal performance last season. Just i think. I want to start calling you the parent the receiving core because you always see the best in this group you know you always see the upside on there with the team. Everything with this team. I probably saw good in charles harrison. That spin movie had to get out of the house. Go get a job. I've sick of you pick them up as he's walking down the street with his bags they just kidding man. Come back. I that will be the data. I'm going to share my face and just had the mustache for the rest of the season. It'd be the data this receiving core. It just fits what you do because you always seem to see that upside at the bottom of the roster guys at it's understandable because whether it's the third of the sixth receiver they're gonna see the field right. They're going to have opportunities whether it's akeem grant taking advantage of those are dropping the couple deep ause he gets. That's a different story but just let let's talk about williams here for quick because each of start before he got hurt last season. He received five targets in each to kind of give that a little bit of context that put him with miles gasket in jalen waddell last week. In terms of the miami dolphin receivers were targeted. The most only devante parker had more targets than those two. So i could see preston really diving back in and becoming part of this offense because he is someone who's gonna wind up in the slot. I think a lot of time but he does not fit that You know usual side. I like to say wiggle that quickness you see but josh what makes preston millions such a good start receiver and receiver in general. Because i go back to it. This is someone. You've always loved the unicorn glitch. Whatever you wanna call him. I mean you've always been a heightening for yet that's just Maybe that's just some some who i am. But i'm you'd go back to that cardinals game like you said jake four receptions sixty yards he had that touchdown i mean. He looked like a difference maker. He looked like one of those guys. It to you know how to report within realize that dude's man-to-man coverage there's no safety over top. I'm gonna take a chance because press says more of that big bodied receiver so he brings a different dynamic. That slop position. I don't know again who's going to get the most reps here. I mean just because he practiced full doesn't mean you know he's going to be a full. Go with with anything this weekend. But i mean if you get presley's back in that line of bringing in a guy that you don't wanna as more of like a devante parker but he fits more of that mold in some of these other guys. You bring another one of those in here. Y'all mike now. You've got six five pressing williams and then all that speed around him. I mean again. I don't know how you attack this buffalo bills team but they gotta play much. Better offense Last year. I think you know have impressed williams back in. The lineup could definitely helped josh something. I thought that was interesting from week. One is it was the miami dolphins spinal drive in. It was too at the five yard. Line that first island completion to Devante parker that really hope. The dolphins sample out o'clock there. Did you see the quotes. It too was saying about that. I mean i was gonna say killed a lot of narratives. Didn't i know a lot of people as a one read quarterback neil. He doesn't have the manpower. The ability to check plays at the line. And i don't have the full quote here but he basically said you know it was i in fourteen. The ball was maybe at the two yard line and a he checked out of a run in the huddle and found devante parker on that slant and i think he gave him what thirteen yards at that point..

"It's all very alabama it's all it's all easy gains to rights right if they're gonna give us gas no flat we're gonna take if you could make one guy mess. I down new downs. We don't need to. It'd be a hero when you to facilitate an offense that makes sense to him and that's the they've talked a lot. Eric students george ghazi costs about how this playbook is going to be deep. And it's going to be complex and that's good plays and we have smart quarterback. We're comfortable in that. But you do have to have your go. Get a buckets and this offense of look you know. They're not trying to show. Everything was very much to go get a bucket very much. The easy stop in and to is going to be able to do that all the way down the field. Especially if guys like waddell and gaskin or able to stay healthy because those guys playmakers the ballmer hands totally grows gonna mention the quick game to both gaskin and wanna I thought was interesting. The motion also impressed me. Ben yeah i was talking to. I did piece on the regular dot com on monday about kind of the last decade of football. And what it's meant in the two thousand eleven scoring boom and harvard chain. I was talking to adam. Zimmer who's the defensive coordinator the vikings and we were just talking about really you. Can't you cannot overemphasize how much motion has changed everything. And how the downhill runs and now become lateral runs and the defense is is never been more confusing and i use this as a way now. Obviously this is not anything that people have known for a couple of years now but if you're not using motion as much as possible. You're leaving Production on the table. And so i was. I was definitely impressed with that Ben if going back to the draft now and seeing this is. This is such a monday morning. Sort of question Waddle is the guy for two right. Yeah i think would win. They were moving around right and they went from free to twelve to six and there was that a media conversation of okay. Who do they feel like is is attention going to be there at six. But there's no chance as well and they had to make this move right out ahead to immediately get back up into the top seven eight. You're looking at two pleasure. Kyle pets and me jalen waddell because a player jomar chase Is going to be that outside. Vertical contested cats jump ball guy having parker and has never really going to be to his game. That's ryan fitzpatrick games. Not really to his game. and then devante smith makes sense right in terms of that that route running and that separation ability. But you're really looking for jack creation after the cat. Something we're devante is good especially for his frame but were waddell has clearly been better across. The course of his career hits also would have made sense. They played too tight. Enzo lot a durham. Smyth is going to be the employer. Offense which is like you know charlotte. Durham smyth But they play multiple times a lot. They wanna be a aggressive downhill running team. That's clearly important to brian florez. I don't think they're going to be that this year but it's really important to him and they wanna have those multiple tight end sets and so you see how pits would've made sense with a times. They moved their tight ends across formation and the times that they get them releasing into concert we might kosinski be decently featured in the offense and one of the preseason that would have been pets so i think pits waddell. Were those two guys that make sense offense that makes sense for two and i do think that as it looks now which obviously they did. Draft waddell basil. Now waddell is important. Waddell is like you said the guy they they used akeem grant as the water. Replacement once Water coming off the field and like it's kinda good is fun player. He's very natural the ball hands. But we've already seen takim grant in miami already know kind of with the ceiling on that as waddell gives you a lot. It's it's the simplicity of saying. If i throw the bubble this guy. I'm getting dissect them for and that's just such a win for my offense and keeps things so easy and it prevents from hero. Plays not only because he doesn't have the greatest deep ball or whatever but also that offensive line's still for all the good stuff that we saw against atlanta's overseen from when they have to take deep drops for two when they tried to run some of those alabama play action shots. It's not a good offense a by late but they had one where waddell got opened on a d. crosser and the often y couldn't hold out for more thumb it was it was They ran in twenty jones. Yeah and and waddle scored multiple touchdowns on that concept and is just the back to be protection. You didn't get a good luck. And then jessie davis right. Tackle mrs bloch. He's got no chance on. So yeah that that pass protection for that deeper. Stop needs to catch up. So you really want to stay ahead of the sticks and wattle is a great players out of the stakes Stephen let's go big picture here. I know this is insane. I know it's insane with the content game for two weeks in the preseason. We've seen it Does what we've seen over the past three weeks with the dolphins give you any any different visions of of the afc east hierarchy. Yeah i think it does because one we don't know i don't know what new england's going to look like like they added all these new pieces. I don't remember what that offense is gonna look like we can. We can guests and then buffalo seems to be due for a little regression. I don't think the offense is going to be fire of fire-breathing. I'm not going to bring up one. Eighty four minutes and fifty seconds. Into your ringer career you brought to pure.

"Your hundred percent rate josh. And as we expand this conversation onto the hoffitz is a whole specifically josh. I mean all of miami's quarterbacks were pretty impressive accurate. The last time we were able to say something like that. But i think it's important to keep in mind that the difference between a dink dunk offense and a quarterback who's afraid to push it down the field Tannehill had some issues with that if you really want to get into the nitty gritty of being unable to push downfield. Channy is the example hours. Go to where he's always. Check it down. He's too scared to make that mistake with the dolphins you though. They're given their guys the ball on an opportunity to make a plan. I mean how often was it. Jalen oiseaux urge akeem grant ahead to be one guy at a. They could cut a dance around for miles gasket on the outside there it was a third seven or so i'll where he caught a ball. He should've actually been tackled. Right around glen scrimmage made guy miss he got the first down so i think it's important to keep in mind. The differences of scheming guys open giving guys an opportunity to get about space. Make budding a play with the ball compared to just hayward delegate to the running back hand w down to my outlook guy because i just don't wanna push the ball. I'm afraid of mcnabb mistake. That could change the. Yeah and i mean i think you could even throw to a ton of a low of last season two thousand twenty as guy. That was a little bit scared to put down field. So i think you're right. It's kind of what you expect when you draft it too. I mean if you brought him in here and they can use go out there and use that to throw the ball around the herbert. You were just mistaken. I mean this is the offense that suits him and he's going out there and he looked like a surgeon. Great side in itself offense scenes signed for him which is a big thing so one hundred percent because it was you know that was not the case last year. But you mentioned jake. He could not have done this without having time in the pocket and this offensive line. Look night and day to be completely honest again. I think a lot of it had to do with going at some of atlanta's second guys. But i mean they were. They were tested. This tested last week to go in there. Do the work put it in and then go out there and and execute on saturday. That's exactly what this offensive line did. Also jackson looked a little bit improved. I know is pro. Football focus create might not might not represent that too. Well but what did you see the most of this offense. Jake you know because i mean they were truly opening up big holes from aisles. Gaskin salva knock mad. I mean it was. It truly was a full effort from this offense and like you said they opened up. That can't pass that we needed to see. I think it starts were not necessarily playing well with playing clean josh. I mean the dolphins with the situation burn with the offensive line. Yes we can. Also jackson started to play better despite his forty seven. Thirty six whenever whatever grade you wanna say for his black Whatever it is. It's not gonna stop well so just pick a low number pick linebacker number and we'll just say that's austin jackson's pass program of what i think the dolphins are gonna have to do to play successful and it goes back to that teacher mentality of straight up plain clean games. There was not a lot of Josh hit the down the head with the quote about getting the line early getting the offensive line in a situation where they identified the blitzes identify with other defense. Trying to do and another thing. Josh where i think that maybe if you wanted to make an argument in smear if larry thompson was going to be miami's left tackle for the next ten years you could say yes. He's great pass blocking yes. He's great roadblocking but penalties josh. Those penalties kind of can sometimes bessarabia. Everything he's trying to do in terms of. Hey you have group walks role that's fine but just give up a ten yard penalty which is just as bad as the sack sub scenarios just to penalties last night. Josh i think this cube going to have to play a very clean and i think the way offensive. Line this bill. I think they're going to be able to do that. And once you know you're playing clean. I mean once you're playing well that starts be kinda gravy when you think about it. I mean the biggest play to me that stood out was down at the in the red zone. I think someone What involves a third and one ingestion. We're told me not to bring it up. And it was leeann mike and bergen robert hunt basically driving and do downfield for seven yards. I saw long sealed off the edge so it was a total group effort. I want to read off some of the pro football grades. You have here again. Take with a grain of salt as always says michael played forty seven snaps. Which jake i mean. michael leader. He looked like he belonged. I mean let's many needs a beer. That's all he needs. He's the best center in the league. That's a beer in the ass. Towel also jackson forty-seven snaps his. Bff gray was thirty. Nine point six again. That was slightly better than last week. Greg little only played twelve snaps in the second half. Liam aiken forty six snaps. Pf pass blocking grade of seventy eight. Again i talked about him in the run game but i mean why the dolphins traded up in and gave up draft capital up there and get lamb like burgum. You kinda see some of that in this game all bite again. Preseason solomon kinley our boy the big fish eighty one point. Three pass blocking grade On forty seven snaps and robert hunt forty seven snaps. Didn't allow single pressure. So again i. I know a lot of this had to do with them. Getting up the line getting up there and snapping the ball not allowing the defense to get some of it had to do with going against that second-string but this is what you want to see. You want the offensive rise to the occasion. And that's what they did and it trickled over into.

"Baker got better and kevin stefanski showed more trust in him after near after those wind affected games around midseason their pass a tab volume really spiked and baker played really. Well i mean that was the best. We've seen baker play since his rookie year. Maybe in his entire career that he added eleven touchdowns one interception with an additional rushing touchdown over their final six games if they can carry that over. I don't think kevin stefanski is necessarily like a run. I coach. i think he's gonna. He's a smart coach and he's going to do and i think he actually believes more in using the past to set up the run So i think this is a good year to draft odell. this is the cheapest. He's been since his rookie year. And so that's why. I'm comfortable being ahead of. Adp on him. This team's score a lot of touchdowns man i mean. Their offensive line is so loaded and yeah there seems to be really really good. Are the cleveland browns for sure you mentioned. Dj charge already. You haven't wide receiver twenty four on underdog. Dj charges wide receiver. thirty four. and. I can explain to you the bear case. I think people are out on. Hr lower than you on da hr. It's just. They're not sure that digital command more targets than laviska in marvin jones. Like i don't think would surprise. People have any of those three led the team in targets. I agree with you. That shark is the best natural talent. But there's so many laviska stands out there. Marvin jones is always in the mix. So yeah i think you're just more confident than the rest of the field. That charge is going to lead. The team in targets are fine. What i'm saying there. Yeah yeah yeah yeah Another another case against them is that urban. Meyer had a history of using wide receivers in specific roles at ohio. State like the nets. Why michael thomas was under drafted in real life. Terry mclaren was way under drafted is because they were kinda difficult to evaluate because they really only had specific roles. In if you go back and watch parris campbell at ohio state you watch his highlights is like everything's a drag route. You go back and watch Everything's like downfield target. michael thomas. He he played a specific kind of one trick role and those guys wound up being really under drafted by the actual nfl. And so if he does. I think the dj sharp would be the the perimeter deep threat role player. Marvin jones would be like the the guy in the in the middle. And then chenault i think would be the run after catch dot so that. That's that's another knock against. Dj shark in I don't know i wouldn't say that. I'm souring on him. But i mean i i get i get both perspectives on 'em so i don't know it's i think i think the ranking here in the evaluation is actually a work in progress right now. Okay two more outliers. I want to mention here. We already talked about the andre swift on the last episode. Go ahead and scroll back to previous episode for that. John swift silva has rb twenty underdog and f. fcc. Both he's the rb sixteen and devante parker. You have devante. Parker wide receiver forty is. Adp is somewhere around wide receiver fifty five un divided partners are grown. Asked me and i know that they added jim waddell. I know they added will fuller. I just think he's back. I know we have questions about to a man. I would bet on talent on monday. Parker this late for sure. Seems like a no brainer to me. I know you're shocked at demonte. Part was wider fifty five. Adp right now. Yeah i mean if you just look overall ranks I have five rounds ahead of where he's going drafts. So i mean it's not even that i think he's going to blow it up but i think he's in a pretty good position here you know. The team has invested in long-term. Expect a nice sizable second year. Leap from two of he's really unchallenged. For playing time. I mean think. He's pretty clearly at the top of the receiver core. I mean you can make an argument that will fuller in jalen waddell. Are you know maybe better talents. I don't know department. Parker free damn good talent and willful and i think because they have the depth that receiver. I think that he's going to be the guy devante. Parker is gonna be the guy who was unaffected by that. It would make a lot more sense for them to eat. And jalen waddell as a rookie and we'll fuller. Who has the injury track record with guys like win. Bowden and the akeem grant or ilson preston williams you. I think those guys are going to experience. The the rotational effect and devante parker is going to be the the time player and i mean i was listening to leoni and ben grouches pockets which are really good. I mean they're freaking long nosed talk forever and if we are getting to leoni though because it looks like he went outside. Did you notice. Yeah he looks little little a little bit more color his skin. Yeah so But i think devante parker is the number one. And i don't know why he's going in the twelfth round you should be going in the seventh or eighth round. Yeah no we actually have. We've gotten so big time. We have a podcast network now and inside. The podcast network is established the edge. highly highly. Highly recommend you check out the pods. He's doing with bankrupt right now. Going player by player and team by team through the entire nfl. By the way. I did take god this morning. I took unders on both jail. Waddell and will fuller season-long receiving yardage props so agree with you on the rotation and easing in and all that a couple of good news stories. I wanna hit before we get to listener. Questions might on damien here is. This is no surprise. But you know he comes out and says that david harris the surefire are be one you know and it kind of makes me think and i think a lot of people thought this already sony. Michelle is really likely at least has a chance to be. Cut leaving there with vermont. Stevenson james wyatt decide brandon bolden on the roster. You have dares ninety eighth overall rb thirty seven. I mean i like him. He's not gonna catch a ton of passes but it's a really strong offensive line. And if mack jones gets in there it gives damian harris more upside two touchdowns. Cam newton won't be in there Stealing golan wraps i think. Still prefers trae sermon over damien harrison that range. But i do prefer. Damian harris guys like twenty pollard and ronald jones. And zack moss. So you know i. I felt the story from mike reese. Today was nothing new. But i thought it was confirmation for people in that might send. Adp up a little bit. Where you add on damien hairs. She's going to be really touchdown. In yardage reliant player.
