Addressing the weakness on the pass rush with their second pick Jaelan Phillips will feel at home in Miami having played for the U in 2020. a 5-star recruit out of high school Phillips has had some bad luck with injuries, including a forced retirement from UCLA because of three concussions.

But in Miami in 2020 he totalled balled out, registering 9 sacks on his way to 42 total pressures. He also recorded an interception and 27 tackles. Overall in 3-years Phillips had 14 sacks in just 457 pass rush snaps and was considered by most draftniks to be the best edge rusher available in the 2021 draft.

JAELAN PHILLIPS IS A TOP-10 TALENT INJURIES ASIDE

Draft Network had this to say about him, “Jaelan Phillips’ performance in 2020 was exactly what the Bruins thought they were getting in the former prized recruit. A balanced defender, Phillips is a playmaker against the run and pass, where his exciting blend of size, length, power, technique, and athleticism make him a challenge for offenses to neutralize. Phillips is a versatile player that has experience playing with his hand in the dirt on the edge, rushing from interior alignments, and playing in space in a standup role—which makes him a fit for all teams in the NFL.
