David Njoku. 22. player. 59. The Miami Dolphins went into this offseason needing upgrade on the defensive side of the ball. The foundation is DT Ndamukong Suh, DE Cameron Wake LB Kiko Alonso, CB Byron Maxwell and S Reshad Jones. But that wasn’t enough as they hand 33 sacks to finish in the middle of the league.
<p>The coverage was also average as a whole as they finished No. 15 in the NFL against the pass. Against the run they were horrible, tied for the worst yards-per-carry average given up at 4.8. So the Dolphins got started early in free agency, putting solid players around their foundation.</p>
<p>They signed S Nate Allen to pair up with Jones and LB Lawrence Timmons to go with Alonso. DE William Hayes was also signed to go with Suh and Wake to rush the passer up front. They can get another CB in the second round so turn their focus back to the offensive side of the ball.</p>
<p>They already have QB Ryan Tannehill with WRs Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker and RB Jay Ajayi. Speedy TE David Njoku from right there in their backyard in Miami would set things off. I don’t know about beating the New England Patriots but they could make a little noise in the playoffs.<br />
