Miami did a splendid job this offseason in landing the freak, Mario Williams. To me, I do not care that he only notched 5 sacks in 2015. Rex Ryan implemented a 3-4 scheme that Mario simply did not fit in to.
Williams is a prototypical 4-3 defensive end. Putting Williams in a 3-4 is like making Tom Brady run boot legs all day, it just does not go well. Look for William’s career to vitalize with the Dolphins. He Joins a powerful front four lead by the defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.
These two will cause fits for any offensive minded coach when they prepare for the revamped defense of the Miami Dolphins. Mario Williams is two burgers away from 300 pounds. He is a stone wall.
Offensive lineman will have a lot of difficulty pushing this man backwards. It is safe to say that it will be difficult for offenses to run the ball against this team. The addition of Kiko Alonso to plug in any extra gaps will make opposing offenses one dimensional very fast.
Miami did lose Olivier Vernon, but upgraded the position with the addition of Mario Williams. He will be better statistically in 2016 going back to his natural position as that edge rusher that aims to maul the quarterback 99.2% of the time. Prior to 2015, those last three years Mario Williams was in a 4-3 he averaged 12.5 sacks.
His overall strength and agility will up the play of the defensive side for Miami for years to come. Be sure to like, comment, and or tweet this article to your friends! Talk to you soon.
