IN THIS EPISODE:
First, Jake and I dive into Noah Igbinoghene’s college numbers and discuss what made him a first-round pick in the first place. (Spoiler alert: Athleticism) Then we try to figure out how many excuses we can come up with for why he struggled through his first two seasons and how he might fit into Josh Boyer’s defense during the third year. The most painful, however, is when we realized which players were available when the Dolphins were on the 30 draft pick in 2020. NFL Draft. And let’s just say, #TheTruthHurts.
We also break down Igbinoghene’s comments on the one-on-one against Jaylen Waddle and Tyreek Hill.
To power against them, a lot of receivers aren’t as good as them. Their speed and the way they catch the ball and stuff like that, just to be able to go against them is a blessing to have them on my team.
approaching every day, just to get better every day. And be present on that day and don’t worry about the past or the future. As you said, the last two years have been difficult for me. So don’t worry about all this, don’t worry about my future. Just take today and care about today and focus on today and improve today. Take that same plan and that same routine, bring it to tomorrow, and do the same thing too.
And his comments on Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison…
“I love them, especially I feel like there’s definitely a lot of experience in the room. I’m not saying there weren’t last year, but these guys played the position and they played at a high level. Just to be able to learn – they are also excellent teachers. I am lucky to be able to learn from them.
Finally, Jake and I discuss how new coaching staff – like Patrick Surtain and Sam Madison – could impact Igbingohene. Can they help him take his game to the next level? We also discuss this Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith had to say about the former first-round pick, his transition from wide receiver to safety, Brian Flores’ time at Auburn, and much more!
What do you think of Noah Igbinoghene? How do you think he fits into Miami’s defense this season? Will he get a chance to show his skills this coming season? Can he push Nik Needham to the nickel? Let us know in the comments section below!
