Starter: Jonathan Martin
LT2: Will Yeatman
The second-most important offensive position, much like the first, is in the hands of an unproven second-year player.
The only difference is that with Ryan Tannehill, we saw progression from week to week. From Jonathan Martin, however, what we saw was constant inconsistency.
I have pinned some of that on what Martin went through last season. In college, he played left tackle, was switched over to right tackle due to the presence of Jake Long in training camp, then moved over to left tackle again at the end of the season after Long was placed on injured reserve.
Could inconsistency of the position be the reason why Martin was so inconsistent?
Maybe, but keep in mind that he was as all over the place from week to week at right tackle as he was at left tackle. I will say that he never seemed totally comfortable on either side during his rookie season.
This year, however, brings some consistency, as Jonathan Martin is the Miami Dolphins' left tackle. He's also bulked up as well, which leads to the question of whether Martin will be consistently good this season.
Miami's offensive performance depends on it.
