Dolphins bringing Luke Falk in for a visit

Early in the pre-draft process, the Dolphins were linked to Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, and coach Adam Gase has made his fondness for him known.

But they also have to have a backup plan in case they can’t (or choose not to) get him at the 11th pick.

According to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins are bringing Washington State quarterback Luke Falk in for a visit next week.

He’s the second quarterback known to be visiting the Dolphins, with Mayfield being the other.

Falk’s probably a mid-round pick, and would present a different storyline than Mayfield, for a team that has insisted they’re fully behind Ryan Tannehill even though they haven’t seen much of him lately.

The Dolphins signed Brock Osweiler and David Fales this offseason, neither of whom would preclude them from drafting a quarterback and having an understudy/potential replacement.

  1. Fans and media that have followed the Dolphins know that being fully behind Ryan Tannehill is football rhetoric. Tannehill was a stretch as a franchise QB and being drafted in the top 10 overall. He has had more than enough opportunity so it’s time to find other viable options; Either in the first, second or third rounds.

    Actually, if you follow any Dolphins blogs where die hard, educated fans post, over 90% are advocates of RT and have full faith in him. He’s played behind the worst O-line in the league the majority of his career(statistics proven) and has had a top 15 QB rating during each season except his first 2. So sorry, but as long as his knee holds up we are just fine at the QB position.

    Great as a fan I hope you’re correct but I doubt it. RT will be replaced before this coming season is over or sometime next season. A franchise QB has innate qualities that Ryan just does not have; Quick release, going through progressions quickly, accuracy on short, medium and deep patterns.
