For the first time in franchise history, Miami had three linebackers total at least five sacks Jerome Baker had seven, Kyle Van Noy had six and Andrew Van Ginkel finished with 5. Fitting the theme of the positional previews, the Dolphins interior defensive linemen come equipped with versatility. The majority of the players below have played reps on the edge, in addition to their work inside. That flexibility helps keep offenses guessing. The mystery of which rushers are coming, and who is dropping in coverage, remains just that for the opposition. Raekwon Davis, a rookie in , registered 40 tackles in his first season, while Zach Sieler made 48 tackles, 11 for loss and recorded 3.
Second-year tackle Benito Jones played in six games as a rookie in The Dolphins added new faces to the group, as well. Adam Butler arrives from New England where he played all over the defensive line, tallying 15 sacks in four seasons. John Jenkins is returning to his former stomping grounds, where he notched 39 tackles as a member of the Dolphins in Jerome Johnson, an undrafted free agent in , enters his first camp as a pro. The former Indiana Hoosier finished his college career with tackles, He also forced a pair of fumbles, blocked a field goal and recorded an interception.
Pro Football Focus credited Johnson with 61 QB pressures on career pass rush reps with 60 run stops tackles within two yards of the line of scrimmage on run-down snaps. Butler offers a plethora of traits along the defensive line, perhaps none more beneficial to the team than his consistency.
He also averaged Pairing brute strength with an explosive first step, Butler often gets his hands on the opposition early and can control the rep from there. He's both a penetrator and a disciplined two-gap tackle with positional flexibility. After enjoying a career-year in with the Dolphins, Jenkins is back after a productive stop in Chicago. Over the last two seasons, the pound defensive tackle piled up 55 tackles, two tackles for loss and a sack. The eight-year veteran added 17 QB pressures over the seasons.
A waiver claim in December of , Sieler is a true success story. Originally a seventh-round pick of the Ravens out of Ferris State, Sieler parlayed a strong finish to the campaign into the most productive year of his career en route to a three-year contract extension with Miami. Sieler comes equipped with freaky measurables. Since , three players posted the following combination of workout s in the run up to the draft — 6-foot-5, plus pounds, sub 4.
Those players are Mario Williams, J. Watt and Zach Sieler. Sieler finished with 25 QB pressures, 32 run stops, 3. Since entering the league in , Wilkins has been among the most productive defensive tackles in his draft class — a class that featured Quinnen Williams, Ed Oliver, Dexter Lawrence and Jeffery Simmons.
He's registered total tackles, 3. Wilkins' biggest strength has been his run defense. He finished sixth in ESPN's run stop win rate among defensive tackles at 41 percent. A stout 6-foot-1, pounds, Jones is a space-eating nose tackle with a solid anchor, active hands and impressive agility for his play strength.
Jones made two tackles one for a loss on 47 snaps as a rookie. One of college football's most impactful interior defensive lineman from the moment he stepped on the field as a freshman, Davis continued to excel in his first season in the NFL. Davis played in all 16 games 12 starts in his rookie year, finishing with 40 tackles. Half of those tackles occurred within two yards of the line of scrimmage run stop stat via PFF and the rookie added 14 QB pressures. The stat sheet didn't fully explain Davis' impact in the second half of the season; he absorbed double teams, created chances for his teammates and often won his gap.
As Head Coach Brian Flores often says, players don't have to fill up the stat sheet to have a true impact, and that was especially true of Davis' tape Wilkins and Sieler could say the same.
