I don’t think anyone would have thought we would be talking about the importance of Miami Dolphins corner Kader Kohou’s play in week 5. Still, here we are.

Kohou is ranked as one of the top rookie CBs in the entire league and is ranked in the top 10 of the NFL at the position. This is impressive for any player but for Kohou, the undrafted rookie is turning more than just Miami Dolphins fans’ heads.

On Sunday, he will be an important part of the Dolphins’ secondary, especially if Xavien Howard misses the game with a groin issue.

Byron Jones was not released from the IR this week, his first week of eligibility, so the Dolphins will be dealing with a lot of experience in the secondary.

Against the Jets, Miami will face two very good wide receivers in rookie Garrett Wilson and Elijah Moore. Moore is very talented. Last year he missed the 2nd game against the Dolphins but posted an 8 reception 141-yard line with one touchdown. This included a 62-yard reception.

Kohou is going to be challenged this week but he has all year. Last week it was Tee Higgins and Ja’Maar Chase. So far, Kohou has been impressive and you can’t ask for anything better.
