Jaelan Phillips

The Miami Dolphins have officially signed a contract with Jalean Philips, a former player for the University of Miami Hurricanes, after making him the highest selection pick for an edge rusher in the 2021 draft.

Phillips, a previous top overall prospect in the class of 2017, was taken by the Miami Dolphins in the 18th spot of the first round. This was the Dolphins’ second selection in the first round.

The greatest cause for concern for Phillips is his extensive medical history, which led to his having to take a medical retirement from UCLA in 2019 prior to making the move to Miami.

A reliable pass rusher was something the Dolphins sorely lacked in comparison to Emmanuel Ogbah during the previous season, and that is exactly what Phillips offers to the team.

In 10 games, Phillips played, he recorded a total of 45 tackles, including 8.0 sacks, 15.5 tackles for loss, and 15.5 total tackles. In the one and only season that Phillips played for the Hurricanes, he not only contributed to the team by rushing the quarterback but also intercepted three passes.

Phillips should be able to have an early impact on the team as a day one starter on a defensive line that is heading upwards if he is able to overcome his history of injuries.

Phillips is the fourth player in the class to be signed, joining wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, who was also selected in the first round, as well as the two players who were selected in the seventh round, Gerrid Doaks, and Larnel Coleman.
