We are putting a lot of faith in LB Raikwan McMillian's recovery. If our front 4 do not do their jobs then running backs on going to be running full speed into him. I think we need to hope for a DT to be cut sometime during the preseason. Jordan Phillips has been such a disappointment for us. He seems to turn it on whenever he likes to. At his best he is very impressive, but we don't see that motor ... and he didn't have it in college, so, why did we think it would change in the NFL?

Miami was barely average against the run last season with Ndamukong Suh, who was rated by Pro Football Focus as the NFL’s second-best run-stopping defensive tackle in 2017. So how they are possibly going to stop the run consistently when they haven't replaced Suh and drafted a linebacker (Baker) whose run-stopping isn’t considered a strength?

PFF rated Jordan Phillips 119th against the run among all defensive tackles last season, Davon Godchaux 64th and Vincent Taylor 53rd. The Dolphins assuredly would argue with those numbers and feel comfortable with Phillips and Godchaux starting.

Perhaps that group, supplemented by a summer free agent and end/tackle William Hayes – will prove sturdy enough in the interior against the run. Perhaps Raekwon McMillan, coming off a serious knee injury, will be a run-stuffer in his first year as the starting middle linebacker. Perhaps defensive end Robert Quinn will do terrific work setting the edge.

But it’s difficult not be somewhat skeptical about any of this.

Armando says to keep an eye on free agent Johnathan Hankins DT when the 17 million becomes available.

Suh was awesome and all..But he was also in place during some pretty bad run defenses.. Be interesting to see how much of his free lancing hurt the run defenses.

Suh was a huge disappointment and overrated. Other than stepping on Brady's Ankle at the end of 2016 he was pretty much worthless. You don't pay a guy that big of a contract to stop the run. There are cheaper options.

Only way it will is if Jordan Phillips decides to play out of his mind in a contract year so he can cash in elsewhere.

Sounds like Hayes is going DT full time or a good majority of it.

Harris will need to show he can set the edge.

Overpaid ya.....But he was pretty darn good..And the attitude he brought to the team is unmatched....Just a mean sob and Brady was petrified of the thought of him coming after him.

That being said..I've seen him get caught out of position or over pursue many times on run plays.
