The Miami Dolphins continue to load up in the skill position categories by adding former New England Patriot and Los Angeles Ram Sony Michel today. The running back room now features Michel, Chase Edmunds, Miles Gaskin and Raheem Mostert. The Dolphins also massively upgraded their offensive line in the off-season which will pay dividends in the run game. All of this on top of a receiving core that consist of Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle and Cedric Wilson.

With all of these additions and upgrades for Tua Tagovailoa it should be one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL. Now, how do all of the pieces fit together though? Recently hired head coach Mike McDaniel is credited with a lot of the success the San Fransisco 49ers run offense has been able to achieve the past few years. With a stable of guys who have high end speed like Mostert to a great combo back in Michel they have a lot of different options.

With such a versatile run game, this will clear up passing lanes and allow Tagovailoa to do what fits his game best which is slants, RPO and a quick passing game. With the addition of Hill and the new run game, we should see a major boost in Waddle’s game. Defenses won’t always be able to leave a safety over top of him which is going to give him a lot more space to create, and Waddle in space is a scary sight.

While the move is great for Tagovailoa and the Dolphins, it is funny to see how things come full circle. Outside of competing in the AFC East in 2020, Michel and Tagovailoa last met in the 2018 national title game in which the Crimson tide knocked off the Georgia Bulldogs to secure their 17th national title.
