talk about the Dolphins quarterback situation. There was a recent report from Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald stating that the Dolphins will want to continue and
stay in contact with Baker Mayfield. Also, there has been a report from PeterKing of MMQB.com saying that he wouldn’t be surprised if Tyrod Taylor landed
with the Dolphins. Let’s talk about some pros and cons with these two news
stories that are out there today.

From the little time he was on the
field, Baker Mayfield played a very good game at the Senior Bowl. Mayfield’s
mobility is a key attribute that the Dolphins need especially if we cannot fix
the offensive line problems in the draft or free agency. Gase did do well with
Ryan Tannehill in the one year that they’ve had together before the injury, but
he didn’t do so well with an older QB in Jay Cutler or Matt Moore. So, drafting
Mayfield to have him sit behind Tannehill for a year and have Gase groom him
into the quarterback he wants him to be could be a very good thing. Although,
if Mayfield must play right away there is some risk there with the pick as
playing a rookie quarterback quickly always has some risk.

On to the possibility of Tyrod
Taylor suiting up in a Dolphins uniform, I’m going to give it to you straight and
I believe the idea is outrageous. With all the teams who are desperate for a
quarterback right now one would think one of those teams would make a play for
Tyrod to be a starting quarterback for them. Would Tyrod turn down a potential
chance to start in Arizona, Denver, or New York to hold a clipboard for Ryan
Tannehill? I’m not so sure to be honest. The Dolphins do know Taylor well
seeing him twice a year for a few years now and that could give them an
advantage into turning him into the quarterback they want him to be, but I am
skeptical of this actually happening.

I think it’s in the Dolphins best
interest to stay with Tannehill who they’ve already committed to and build
around him. Starting with the offensive line by drafting guard
Quenton Nelson and just give Tannehill another shot because as I said
earlier Tannehill had made some strides before the injury and had some
promising moments.
