No matter what the Miami Dolphins do it appears there is an unbreakable spell of doom on its offensive line.
This makes Jay Ajayi look even better, with the talented tailback finishing the season as the top ranked back in football.
One could point to injuries as a contributing factor, with center Mike Pouncey missing 11 games, but it’s always something with this group. This is despite four of its five starters being former first-rounders in Pouncey, Branden Albert, Ja’Wuan James, and Laremy Tunsil.
Right guard Jermon Bushrod was the group’s biggest culprit, ranking 72nd among 75 qualifying guards. Albert appears to be in decline, ranking 65th among all offensive tackles.
However, the group has experienced slight improvement from the previous seasons… They ranked 31st in the rankings last year and 32nd the year before.
Could they rise to 29th next year? Baby steps.
