Part 2 in our daily countdown to the start of the Miami Dolphins training camp." 2019 Miami Dolphins Training Camp24 Miami Dolphins training camp stories in 24 days: Hybrid defense could free up Charles HarrisNew Reshad Jones Jersey ,6commentsPart 2 in our daily countdown to the start of the Miami Dolphins training camp.EDTThe Miami Dolphins are expected to move to a hybrid defense this year, with additional emphasis on a 3-4 system, with three defensive linemen and four linebackers. The coaching staff would like to see a defense that can line up in a 4-3 on one play and a 3-4 on the next, keeping offenses guessing as to where players will align and from where the pass rush could come. It is a scheme that could allow the Dolphins to create mismatches against opponents while masking some of their own deficiencies. It could also have another huge benefit. With the 22nd overall pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, the Dolphins selected Missouri edge rusher Charles Harris. In 27 career games played with the Dolphins (16 as a rookie and 11 games last year), he has 38 tackles with three sacks and two passes defensed. As a hand-in-the-dirt defensive end, Harris was swallowed by a depth chart that included Cameron Wake, Robert Quinn, and Andre Branch. He has struggled to find his role in the defensive front, and he has had a disappointing start to his career.Enter Minkah Fitzpatrick Jersey , the hybird defense. “Multiple. That’s what we’re going to do,” defensive coordinator Patrick Graham said back in February as he explained the style of defense Miami would be running. “We’re going to do whatever Coach Flores wants us to do that week and what we’re going to try to do is try to teach the guys the concepts of the defense, what the coverage is, what the rush is – whether we’re rushing three, four, five or six, it doesn’t matter. How we deploy those guys in different spots and the outside looking in, you guys see it, it’s going to look multiple. It is going to be multiple. Are we talking in terms of 3-4 or 4-3? It’s just going to be multiple. We’re going to do what we’ve got to do that week and that game. We’re going to try to win that situation, whatever we have to do. If it requires all 11 guys to be on their feet Mike Gesicki Jersey , it requires all 11 guys to be on their feet. If it requires all 11 to be down in a three-point stance, it’ll look weird, but we’ll do it if that’s what we think is going to win the game.”At Missouri, Harris played outside linebacker. He was able to move freely and get after opposing quarterbacks. He had space with which to work, and he flourished in that style. He played with his hand in the dirt as a traditional 4-3 defensive end as well, but he has not been able to reach the potential that made him the 22nd overall pick working solely as a 4-3 end at the professional level.But in a hybrid defense, where he could be a defensive end or a rush linebacker on any given play, that could be exactly what Harris needs. It could allow him to show the pass rush skills the Dolphins want. It could also open up a part of his game that does not get mentioned much - his coverage ability. While Harris is a pass rusher with a great spin move and an ability to use his athleticism to get around blocks, he also does have the ability to keep up with tight ends and running backs in coverage. In their draft preview of Harris back in 2017, Sports Illustrated wrote:Harris did not have the greatest Scouting Combine Jason Sanders Jersey , coming in with a slow 40-yard dash time (4.82 seconds) and small for a typical defensive end (6-foot-2, 256 pounds, 32-3/8” arms), but that could play to his strengths as a linebacker. The Dolphins will still ask Harris to be a 4-3 defensive end, and he will have to show that he can have success there, both as a pass rusher and in anchoring against the run, but they may find a breakout season coming from Harris just because the defense is changing. Asking Harris to stand up and become an outside linebacker could play perfectly into his strength as a player. Harris could find the freedom to perform this year, starting to reach the potential that led Miami to select him in the first round back in 2017. Training camp and the preseason may allow us our first glimpse of Harris playing like the team envisioned with that pick. INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Andrew Luck was at his best when it mattered most for the Indianapolis Colts.Including some fancy footwork at a big moment.After throwing three TD passes, Luck calmly stepped through Miami's pass rush and found Chester Rogers for a 34-yard gain that helped set up Adam Vinatieri's 32-yard field goal as time expired in the Colts' improbable 27-24 victory over the Dolphins on Sunday. "There's a moment there where you're thinking ‘Don't go down, stay up Raekwon McMillan Jersey , give our guys a chance,'" Luck said. "I'm glad it worked out."For most of Indianapolis' fifth straight win, Luck & Co. struggled.He was picked off twice in a 17-second span at the end of the first half. The Colts also lost a fumble. They had a punt partially blocked and Vinatieri came up well short on a makeable field goal — though it appeared the Dolphins (5-6) might have deflected the kick.Then, with the Colts trailing 24-14 early in the fourth, Luck found a way to rally his teammates.He overcame two offensive penalties to set up Vinatieri's 46-yard field goal with 8:26 left. He fired a perfect 12-yard strike to Eric Ebron, tying it at 24 with 4:25 remaining. And after the Colts' defense forced a second straight three-and-out, Luck took over on his own 42 and kept his balance just long enough on third-and-9 to connect with Rogers."I didn't think that," coach Frank Reich said when asked if he thought Luck might fall down. "I saw him stepping up and I'm so accustomed to him finding a way to make a play. I wasn't anticipating him finding someone for a 30- or 40-yard gain, but what a play."Four plays later, Vinatieri trotted onto the field and made the 28th game-winning kick of his career.The resurgent Luck finished 30 of 37 for 343 yards. He has thrown at least three TD passes in eight consecutive games Laremy Tunsil Jersey , tying Peyton Manning for the second-longest streak in NFL history.Luck also had his first career reception , a 4-yard catch for a fourth-down conversion that eventually led to a 1-yard TD pass to Jack Doyle late in the first half.It's the longest win streak for Indianapolis (6-5) since it also won five in a row in the first half of the 2014 season.The Dolphins, meanwhile, have lost 10 of their last 11 road games — perhaps none more frustrating than this game.Ryan Tannehill returned after missing five games with a shoulder injury and played well from the start.His 33-yard TD pass to Kenyan Drake on the opening possession ended the team's nine-quarter streak without a touchdown and his 74-yard TD pass to Leonte Carroo tied it at 14 late in the first half. Jason Sanders kicked a 29-yard field goal early in the third quarter and Drake's nifty 14-yard run with 13:36 remaining gave the Dolphins a 24-14 lead.With Luck working his magic, it didn't last. He led the Colts on three scoring drives in the final 8 1/2 minutes."It hurts," Tannehill said. "We were in a good position to win and to not finish it hurts."INJURY REPORTDolphins: Receiver Danny Amendola (right knee) and center Travis Swanson (ankle) both left in the first quarter.Colts: Linebacker Darius Leonard injured his knee on the first play of the game but returned on the next defensive series. Running back Marlon Mack entered the concussion protocol in the fourth quarter.STAT PACKDolphins: Frank Gore ran 14 times for 67 yards against his former team. … Drake caught five passes for 64 yards and the TD. … Xavien Howard picked off Luck twice. … The Dolphins squandered their last chance when Howard was called for a personal foul following the Colts' last touchdown and Senorise Perry drew a holding call on the ensuing return to pin Miami at its own 6-yard line.Colts: Luck's streak of consecutive dropbacks without a sack ended at 239. … Ebron has 11 TDs this season — matching his career total coming into this season. … T.Y. Hilton had seven catches for 125 yards. … Mack ran 15 times for 85 yards.UP NEXTDolphins: Host Buffalo in a division matchup next Sunday.Colts: Visit Jacksonville next Sunday, seeking a series sweep of last year's AFC runner-up.
