With the NFL Draft just a few days away, we take a look at what’s happening in the Miami quarterback market.
How will the Dolphins’ QB situation play out?
Miami has been linked to a quarterback for a few weeks now, with the team reportedly leaning toward the New York Jets as a potential landing spot.
However, the Dolphins have yet to make a final decision.
As of Tuesday afternoon, the team was still undecided.
The Dolphins had a quarterback with the first overall pick in the 2018 draft, so they’re likely not making a decision until the second round.
However it plays out, the Jets would be a nice landing spot for Miami.
The Jets would have a quarterback they like to develop and one that would be able to provide immediate leadership to the team and the franchise.
They also have a solid receiving corps.
They are projected to take the first quarterback in the first round of the NFL draft.
Will the Miami team sign QB Josh Rosen?
The Miami Dolphins are a playoff contender, and a top-five team in the AFC East.
With that said, the Miami offense needs a solid quarterback.
In the NFL, a quarterback is almost always drafted with a first round pick.
That means that teams can move up and down in the draft to select a quarterback in their top 10 or top 10 overall picks.
For Miami, that would mean drafting QB Josh Renner.
The former Florida State signal-caller has been projected to go to the Jets with the No. 1 overall pick, and the Dolphins are looking for an upgrade in their offense.
That’s a big reason why Miami could potentially sign Rosen.
However for now, it remains to be seen how the Miami offensive line will play out.
While the Dolphins were the most active team in their search for a quarterback, the offensive line hasn’t been active in the QB search as of yet.
The team did release a statement about the quarterback search on Monday, and it sounds like the Dolphins could still be in talks.
If they are, the deal could be finalized by Tuesday, but it’s unclear if they’ll be able get a deal done.
What will happen with the Miami receiver corps?
Miami is one of the best teams in the NFL.
With a deep receiving corps, including former first round picks Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson and Jarvis Landry, Miami is going to be an extremely potent offense.
If Miami can sign Rosen to a long-term deal, it will allow them to utilize a veteran receiver like Lee and Robinson.
If the team can’t get the top target, they could use the rest of the team to develop that target.
How long will it take to see the Miami signing?
The signing of Rosen and the signing of quarterback Josh Rosen would make the Miami season just a month away.
However there are still a few hurdles for the Dolphins to clear before the start of training camp.
First of all, the draft order will be determined.
If a team is looking to add a quarterback or WR in the second or third round, the signing process will likely take place after the draft.
However the Dolphins can’t sign Rosen until after the first week of camp.
That would mean they’ll have to wait until the first day of camp to sign Rosen, or until after training camp to see him.
Will Rosen sign with Miami?
While Miami has a strong receiving corps with Lee, Robinson, Landry and Lee, the offense will need a veteran quarterback to carry it.
That could be Rosen.
The 6-foot-2, 218-pounder has experience as both a starter and a backup quarterback in college and has a proven track record of being able to lead a team to success.
If Rosen can become the team’s starter, Miami would be wise to make sure that he has the experience to succeed.
