Miami Dolphins: Star Players for 2014

Quarterback: Ryan Tannehill

Ryan Tannehill was selected with the 8th pick of the 2012 NFL draft. Tannehill spent most of his College Football career as a receiver for Texas A&M. In 2011 he was selected as the team's starting quarterback and finished the season with a quarterback rating of 133.2. Tannehill has beaten out veterans David Garrard and Matt Moore to win the starting quarterback position for the Miami Dolphins. In his rookie season, Tannehill set franchise rookie records for passing yards, attempts, and completions. He had an even better season in 2013, running nearly 4,000 yards in all sixteen games and scoring 24 touchdowns.

Offensive Star: Mike Wallace

Wide receiver Mike Wallace was taken by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the third round of the 2009 draft, following an impressive college career at the University of Mississippi. Following a promising rookie season, Wallace was moved up the depth chart, quickly establishing himself as one of the NFL's elite wideouts with 1,257 yards receiving and ten touchdowns, leading the league with seven 100-yard receiving games. Following two more impressive seasons, Wallace opted to move his home to a warmer Miami and signed a $60 million contract with the Dolphins. As one of the league's leading receivers, Wallace will be expected to perform from the get go as the Dolphins strive for a return to the playoffs.

Defensive Star: Cameron Wake

Cameron Wake was signed by the New York Giants in 2005 as an undrafted free agent, following a good college career at Penn State University. Released quite quickly after this, Wake signed for the BC Lions of the CFL where he quickly made a name for himself over the two seasons abroad. Generating interest from no fewer than 17 NFL teams, Wake signed with the Dolphins where he made an immediate impact registering two sacks, four tackles for a loss and a forced fumble in his very first appearance. Wake earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 9 of the 2013 season, racking up five tackles, three sacks, two tackles for loss, two quarterback hits and recorded a safety in the Dolphins' 22-20 overtime victory. He has earned himself three Pro-Bowl and two All-Pro selections.

Head Coach: Joe Philbin

Joe Philbin began his NFL coaching career as assistant offensive line coach for the Green Bay Packers. Philbin was promoted to Packers offensive coordinator in 2007 and turned the Packers offense into one of the best in the NFL. Philbin played a large role in the development of Aaron Rodgers and led the offense to the Super Bowl Championship in 2010. Philbin was named head coach of the Miami Dolphins at the beginning of 2012 and helped the Dolphins to an improved 7-9 season. He managed to build on this slightly in 2013 with an 8-8 record. Perhaps he will see his first winning season come 2014.
