Plays with his hand in the dirt, but does a good job of keeping his eyes on the backfield. He's not going to overpower many guys. Does have moves to go both outside and inside, solid swim move. Even saw him try a spin move vs. VT though it didn't work. He's not going to be a force to reckon with on the ground, definitely a much better pass rusher. He retired in 2018 due to concussions but returned. He looks to be a player with a very high ceiling, but there are certainly health concerns.

Jaelan Phillips selected No. 18 by Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have selected edge rusher Jaelan Phillips, with the No. 18 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Jaelan Phillips comes with a concerning injury history but is arguably the most talented edge rusher in the 2021 NFL Draft class. Explosive with good hands and ankle flexion, Phillips can win with both power and finesse. He likely punched his card as the first edge rusher off the board thanks to an exceptional Pro Day performance. Double-digit sack seasons should be in the cards for the intriguing rookie.
