According to ESPN's KC Joyner, the Dolphins last season gave their
running backs good blocking on only 34 percent of their rushing
attempts, which ranked 28th in the league, with the league average at
38 percent. Jay Ajayi had far more carries with bad blocking (173)
than good (86). And Branden Albert is gone from that mix.
 
By comparison, the Dolphins allowed good blocking on 41 percent of
opponent's carries, which was 26th (from a defensive standpoint) in
the league. Unless Phillips improves dramatically and unless newcomers
William Hayes and Lawrence Timmons and perhaps Raekwon McMillan can
solve that run defense deficiency, there will be problems. We'll see.

They have been working the O Line since the signing of Jake Long and still cannot get it right to save their lives.

IIRC, the two worst run blockers on the '16 DL were Branch and
phillips's rotational buddy - I've forgotten his name. (Not that
Phillips was top 10). That's why Miami tried to get two run-stuffing
DEs and why whats-his-name is gone.
 
Biggest factor in Miami's run game was Pouncey and fans can only hope he
stays healthy.
