Dolphins rookie Jaelan Phillips talks about the second day rookie camp drill Former Cane and Miami Dolphins rookie defensive end Jaelan Phillips talks about the second day rookie camp drill, May 15, 2021.
Dolphins coach Brian Flores, entering Year 3 of his tenure in Miami, quickly established what he wants his rookies to take away from their first set of NFL practices together — something rookies such as quarterback Tua Tagovailoa were not afforded due to COVID-19 last year.
We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us and so that’s what I’m doing — just every day trying to get better and like I said, being where my feet are. UM used Phillips on defensive line in 2020, but the Dolphins list him as a linebacker — the position he played at UCLA before transferring. He expects to play all over the front seven for Miami, which is probably right.
