Miami Dolphins most disappointing players

Jaelan Phillips

Jaelan Phillips was the premier pass rushing prospect in the 2021 Draft, and showed flashes of promise during his rookie season while struggling with consistency. Things haven’t gotten much better in that regard so far in his second campaign.

Phillips has just one sack through the first five games, meaning that he’ll need 7 over the final 12 games in order to match last season’s production. He has been active in batting passes and has had his moments in putting pressure on the quarterback, but his issues with missed tackles and lack of sacks make Phillips one of the biggest disappointments on the season.

Emmanuel Ogbah

On the opposite side of Phillips is Emmanuel Ogbah, and he could be an even bigger disappointment. He signed a lucrative contract in the off-season to link him to Miami for the foreseeable future, and he has been all but invisible thus far in 2022.

Ogbah has just one sack on the season, which came in Week 1, and has six total tackles through five games. While they are both expected to have better production than they’ve had thus far, Ogbah may be the bigger issue for the Dolphins. He is counted on to be the consistent veteran piece in Miami’s pass rush, and he has yet to live up to the expectations that come with being one of the team’s highest paid players.
