I'm picking up good vibrations. It's hot in Miami and the Dolphins have started the season on fire. Mike McDaniel, in beating Belichick and Harbaugh, could not have asked for a better start to his first head coaching campaign. Unlike last year, Tua has the full backing of his coach and he looks like a new man. Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill might just be the best receiving duo in the league, so no wonder Tua is oozing confidence. Tua hasn't been perfect so far, and his lack of arm strength is obvious, but he leads the league in passing yards. For now, we just need to enjoy the feeling of being good.

The offensive line has improved although it remains a weakness. Austin Jackson landing on IR won't be the worst news we get all season. Connor Williams has been a pleasant surprise at OC. The run game will be fine in games where we aren't down by 21 points in the 4th quarter.

However good Miami look offensively, The Bills have looked better and remain the team to beat in the AFC East. The Fins' defense has struggled to stop Josh Allen since he arrived in the league. The defense has not found the form yet this year that highlighted the back end of last season. The tackling has been poor and the linebacking group needs to be better.

DOLPHINS HISTORICAL DRAFT PICKS

Reach/Value (R/V) Explained
The difference between where a player is selected in the NFL draft versus where the player was listed on the final Drafttek Big Board for the season in question.
Example: A player who was listed at #50 on the Big Board and was selected at #35 will be a "Reach" of -15. Alternately, a player listed at #35 on the Big Board who was selected at #50 is a +15 "Value".

Simply put: a positive number is a Value pick, a negative number is a Reach.
