It's easy to say that the 2013 season rests in second-year quarterback Ryan Tannehill's hands. While it's somewhat correct, the statement glosses over one under-the-radar detail: Jonathan Martin is moving from right tackle to left tackle.
If Miami Dolphins fans aren't concerned about that, they should be. He wasn't particularly effective on the right side, receiving a negative-22.2 Pro Football Focus grade (subscription required). Despite all of his injuries, Jake Long was at least average.
If Martin can fill the former top-overall pick's shoes, the Dolphins will challenge the New England Patriots for the AFC East crown.
Tannehill was much better than anticipated (at least by those outside of the Dolphins organization), and he now has a deep threat in Mike Wallace who will stretch the defense, opening up passing lanes all over the field.
The defense will feature two uber-talented defensive ends. Cameron Wake will bring his 15 sacks from last season on one side, while Dion Jordan will provide his freak athleticism from the other.
The linebacking corps is solid with Dannell Ellerbe and Philip Wheeler joining incumbent Koa Misi. And the secondary has a chance to be outstanding with a top-tier safety duo welcoming cornerback Brent Grimes into the fold.
The Dolphins aren't Super Bowl material yet, but they're definitely postseason worthy.
