RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Odrick has yet to become the true defensive force the Dolphins thought they were getting when drafted in 2010. He is also miscast as a defensive end in a 4-3 defense and could see some time at DT as well. The Dolphins like to rotate their DL players to keep them fresh and have plenty of competition at end with Cameron Wake and this year's first-round pick Dion Jordan. Odrick will have to perform in order to see the field on a regular basis.
Odrick has upside as a DT but only 20 tackles in 2011 keeps him from being a strong consideration in IDP leagues. The Dolphins also like to rotate their players along the defensive line. This can be both good and bad as it does keep their players fresh but obviously less time on the field means less of an opportunity to compile big numbers and make big plays.
Odrick missed most of his rookie season after suffering a broken leg. He is fully healthy and expected to start at right defensive end. Odrick has skills, but in Miami's 3-4 defense it's still hard for him to make much of an impact in IDP leagues.
Odrick was the Dolphins first-round pick in this past April's draft and gives the Dolphins another big body at end on the defensive line. Miami loves to rotate their linemen and keep everyone fresh, but as soon as Odrick earns the trust of the coaches he will play more and more. For those of you worried that he may play nose tackle in the 3-4 defense, that is not the plan as of now.
