    Who do you think will be the break-out star for the Dolphins this year? I kept people off the list like Parker, Howard, Baker, Ogbah, Fuller etc because they have already are great players. If other please post who you think it will be.

    I vote for OT Austin Jackson, who will establish himself among the top half of LTs in the league this season.

    I really hope it's Austin Jackson, but I waffled between Van Ginkel and R. Davis and ultimately picked Van Ginkel.

    I was looking for Tua on this list, but I went with Gaskin.
    Miami has done a decent job producing running backs, but then couldn't hold onto them. If the OL has improved and the WR give the opposition a headache, I think Gaskin could have a dominant run season.

    Jackson would be money. That’s my secret hope. Honestly, can’t lose between any of them, especially VG.

    Almost a given that any poster here would vote Tua if he was an option for this poll which is why OP maybe didn't include him.

    I say Van Ginkel.

    There's too much competition at WR for me to say Fuller, Waddle or Wilson. In theory, each one should shine but they'll each limit the others' total output.

    And while I think Davis and Wilkins are great, I don't think any DT is going to be a "breakout star." Ditto for a RB like Myles Gaskin.

    Regardless of how much he plays, I have confidence in Noah, but he's not going to suddenly become the best defender a la Xavien Howard.

    Van Ginkel OTOH will play an impact position and should see an increased role this year. He also has to establish himself to fend off rookie Jaelan Philips. So AVG has every reason to work his tail off and all the ability to do it well.

    I went with Davis. I think that a full offseason will do wonders for him now that the game has slowed down. I think the interior DL is going to be a particular strength.

    With that being said, I also agree that Van Ginkel can be the guy. He's the reason we dropped Van Noy and I think he's going to reward that confidence with progression toward being a solid LB.

    I took Iggy. I think CB's can make significant leaps between rookie and second year. Dude has all the talent and raw ability, he just needs coaching and direction to get it harnessed. This is supposed to be Flo's specialty and passion, and his hand-picked prospect. If he can have a Jaire Alexander-esque trajectory, that would be a huge bonus.

    I'd also love to see Perry as a weapon out of the backfield and slot, but that's less likely imo.

    I left him out because I feel like it's almost a gimme.

    Good point. The question is then what sort of performance would be considered breakout for the 6 overall vs what is generally expected, and will he exceed that. I am higher on Waddle than I have been for any pick since Ronnie Brown.

    I really hope they don't. The Dolphins have traded too many great players in the last few seasons. We are not rebuilding anymore. The two parties need to work it out.

    I'm thinking of the often forgotten but steady Gaskin.With a better line and supporting skill players around him ,he should be better.

    I really hope they keep Howard but I'm more into bflow and his system to individual stars...it would suck to have him go but not the worst contingency plan in Iggy...
