Pro Football Focus ranked the Top 50 NFL players recently, and the only Miami Dolphins player to crack the elite list was enormous human Ndamukong Suh at No. 32.
Suh has been a force for the Miami Dolphins since signing for them in a blockbuster free agent move. He has generated 118 total pressures and 80 defensive stops over the past two seasons and played over 1,000 snaps in each year, more than he ever managed for the Detroit Lions. Suh missed just one tackle last season and batted down six passes at the line in addition to his pressure and stops…
For perspective, the New England Patriots had four players ranked — Tom Brady (No. 3), Rob Gronkowski (No. 9), Malcom Butler (No. 38), and Devin McCourty (No. 49). Both the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets had zero while six quarterbacks made the list.
No major complaints here. If each of the NFL’s 32 teams were represented equally it’d equate to about two players per team. The only other Dolphin worthy of this list? Reshad Jones, who missed most of the 2016.
As for PFF’s grading system last season, five Dolphins ranked within the Top 10 at their respective positions:
Jay Ajayi — 3rd
Jarvis Landry — 9th
Reshad Jones — 6th
Ndamukong Suh — 4th
Cameron Wake — 10th
