aekwon McMillan T.J. McDonald Jersey , Week 5 vs. Cincinnati Bengals Raekwon McMillan tore his ACL on the 1st snap of preseason in 2017. Let’s take a look at the Miami Dolphins MLB’s sophomore campaign. McMillan played 43 of 60 snaps, and here’s 23% in GIF form...(plays listed in chronological order)The TapeI think it’s debatable what “Baekwon” (as my awesome Phinsider Radio co-host Josh Houtz calls him) is doing with his 1st couple of steps. Does he get enticed ever-so-slightly by the play action fake from Andy Dalton to Joe Mixon, or is he simply ensuring the first crosser has no gap between he and TJ McDonald? But look at the feet, they look light: change of direction is better than what we saw earlier in the season and in the preseason. He’s able to go from outside the hash, shuffles inside the hash, and back to the numbers quickly to make the sure tackle. Armando Salguero came on Phinsider Radio and said that a blocking TE from Carolina Panthers outrunning the 2017 2nd round draft pick was cause for concern during the preseason meeting between the 2 clubs. Some of the snaps at that point in time he looked slow in my opinion, I’ll admit begrudgingly because I’m a Buckeyes fan. You see a little more“spring” in this GIF.Play action bootleg (most Mike Shanahan play ever), and McMillan pursues towards the run but fluidly returns to the crossing pattern by AJ Green. Unfortunately Xavien Howard overpursues, or this ball might’ve got chucked up to Matthew Cannata and I’s seats. I like the play diagnosis by McMillan and the amount of lateral space covered.No one was in danger of getting to Raekwon on the 2nd level, so I think he could’ve taken a more aggressive angle outside for a tackle for loss (and he had fellow Buckeyes linebacker Jerome Baker pursuing laterally and could’ve handled any cutback, as he beat his block). As the play stands, he covers ground, implements solid tackling technique, and limits Mixon for a short gain. Got to the gap with a good, wide base. Mixon essentially came straight to him, nothing remarkable on this play tackle-wise. McMillan with solid gap integrity and sometimes you see young players try and do something flashy in this situation - McMillan is fundamentally sound and makes the play. Anyone see the blatant jersey pull on McMillan on this play? LOL.At any rate, looks like his gap assignment is inside the tackle. Nothing crazy here Jerome Baker Jersey , and this is not rocket science for OL-on-LB phenomena in the NFL, but getting an OL body on Raekwon is one way to limit his impact and shut down his strengths in pursuit. I think he disengages from this block admirably for getting matched up on an OL, but at the end of the day, his teammates do all the work (Charles Harris and Minkah Fitzpatrick in on the play). Raekwon is on the top-side of the field, covering the RB in the flats. The spacing on that side of the field is tremendous, and allows all those crossing patterns to not result in any natural “picks”. Without the spacing, McMillan arrives late and then he’s making a tackle in space. He’s able to close the throwing window quickly, and the Dolphins would get a coverage sack here and force the Cincinnati Bengals into a long field goal.The Bengals go with some banana motion, which is all an elaborate distraction from a HB draw. Davon Godchaux does a great job slowing the OL, Raekwon gets play side on the OL designed to come out and get a body on him, he penetrates the gap and helps on the tackle. This is excellent interior defense by some young players. As weird as it is to say about this particular game, let’s appreciate where we’re lucky and these young defenders are starting to make a name for themselves. Lot of crossing patterns here, Kiko Alonso sees it before Raekwon (and you can even see Kiko try to point that direction to McMillan). I find McMillan in error here. Comes to far inside and you don’t come that close to another zone defender with the horizontal routes in this play design. With time, the hope is that he doesn’t overreact to the drag routes, trusts the zone spacing, and next time he’ll be closer to the numbers/hash split and make Dalton think twice before (hopefully) the pass rush is getting there.McMillan still disciplined, even though at this point Andrew Van Ginkel Miami Dolphins Jerseys , the Miami Dolphins are scrambling (in terms of how drastically situational football changed). He’s rightfully patient in the middle of the field as Dalton looks left, but then immediately recognizes the pseudo-screen and makes the tackle. Clever diagnosis, in my opinion.Raekwon shoots the gap and gets the tackle. Granted, the Bengals are trying to simply burn clock here but you have to appreciate the awareness, “getting skinny” (avoiding the block or chip of #87 for the Bengals and squeezing into the gap between the center as well), and trying to make a late play in the game. ConclusionWith the Miami Dolphins offense sputtering in a major way, the development of the young nucleus on defense is certainly a welcome sign. Raekwon McMillan had entered the 2018 season with some question marks after the ACL injury, but the tape shows there’s still a lot to be positive and hopeful about. Raekwon McMillan hasn’t arrived per se, but you’re starting to see why the Dolphins invested a 2nd round draft pick and let’s not forget that narratives change in the NFL quickly. It’s up to Raekwon to build on this effort and continue to put good tape on Sundays on a regular basis. DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — DeVante Parker was 15 yards beyond intended receiver Jakeem Grant when things got weird.A defender’s hit redirected the pass, which was dislodged from Grant’s arms as he gathered it in. The ball sailed directly to Parker, who alertly made the catch for a bizarre 46-yard gain .“It shocked me,” Parker said. “I was just in the right spot at the right time.”That’s a refreshing change for the Miami Dolphins receiver, and perhaps a sign of changing fortunes. Parker has been an unlucky underachiever since he was drafted with the 14th overall pick in 2015.This season the injury-prone Parker has missed five games because of finger and quadriceps issues, and he hopes to play two weeks in a row for the first time Sunday against the New York Jets .He’s coming off one of his best games yet. Parker was a rare bright spot in Miami’s 42-23 loss at Houston last week, catching six passes for a career-high 134 yards — including the reception that ranked among the NFL’s goofiest grabs this year.“It felt good to be out there contributing,” he said.The Dolphins hope Parker can continue to give their injury-plagued offense a lift. They’ll be without quarterback Ryan Tannehill (throwing shoulder) for the fourth game in a row Sunday Miami Dolphins Jerseys 2019 , and at Houston, the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Parker made backup QB Brock Osweiler look good.“DeVante is an extremely talented receiver,” Osweiler said. “He’s a big target, he’s physical, he plays hard. He did some great things for us against Houston, and I expect him to do some great things for us against New York. In fact, I expect him to play even better. I think DeVante is just getting rolling.”Parker’s statistics against the Texans could have been even more impressive, but Osweiler overthrew him in the open on a deep route. They worked on the pattern half a dozen times in practice Wednesday, and Osweiler found his target.“It was much better,” Osweiler said with a chuckle. “Hopefully we got that one cleaned up.”The Jets will be braced for Parker. He had eight receptions and a touchdown against them last year.“He’s a deep-ball threat, obviously, and he can go up and get the ball, and he can catch it over the middle,” Jets coach Todd Bowles said. “He’s a big receiver and he can run, so we’re going to have to cover him.”Although Parker’s an inviting target, he has yet to have a 750-yard receiving season Andrew Van Ginkel Jersey nfl draft , and has made only one touchdown catch in the past two years.Now the opportunity is there for him to do more. Receiver Kenny Stills (groin) didn’t practice Wednesday and might miss his second game in a row. And receiver Albert Wilson (hip) is out for the season.Because of those injuries, the Dolphins decided against parting with Parker at this week’s trade deadline, despite rumors he was on the market. Complicating the situation was an outburst by Parker’s agent, Jimmy Gould, who questioned Gase’s competence and complained about his client not playing.Gase said there was never a problem between him and Parker, and put the issue in the past.“We move on quick, man,” Gase said. “If DeVante had something to say to me, he’d say it. He’s not afraid to tell me stuff.”Gase, in his third season at Miami, said Parker has been unlucky with injuries.“In my time he has tried to do everything possible to make sure he is ready to go,” Gase said. “And he has done a good job of staying engaged when he wasn’t playing.”Despite long stretches of idleness, Parker had a good grasp of his assignments against Houston, Gase said. And it showed.“He was playing fast,” Gase said. “Hopefully we just keep getting better every week and keep expanding his role.”
