If there is one area on the Miami Dolphins roster that is simply awesome, it has to be the defensive secondary and they got better in the draft.
No trade of Xavien Howard to weaken the unit, Byron Jones is returning, no release or trade of Bobby McCain, Brandon Jones hitting his stride in late 2020, and looking to be a solid safety addition to the roster, and veteran Erick Rowe alone make the secondary great. Yet the addition of Jevon Holland has been lauded as a steal for Miami in round two of the draft this year.
Miami also has the developing Noah Igbinoghene who is a hard-hitting slot corner who can play all over the field and Miami brought back Nik Needham on a one-year deal this off-season.
Miami has incredible starting talent and two of the best combinations at corner in the league and the safety position has improved as well. Overall, the Dolphins secondary is their best unit and should be one of the best in the NFL.
Given the upgrades up front and on the edge, the secondary should get better this year as an opposing offense is going to find it harder to buy pocket time if the defensive front can create pressure and force throws that Xavien Howard can pick off.
