16. Miami Dolphins: Emmanuel Ogbah, Jaelan Phillips

For my money, this might be the most underrated duo in the NFL right now off the edge.

Jaelan Phillips was sensational as a rookie, racking up 8.5 sacks, 16 QB hits, nine tackles for loss, and 26 pressures while only playing in 54 percent of the Dolphins’ defensive snaps.

Emmanuel Ogbah has 18 sacks over the last two seasons and 45 QB hits in that timeframe, so he’s really stepped up his game since sort of getting tossed around between a few teams just three years ago.

The Dolphins have a very underrated defense as a whole but the duo of Ogbah and Phillips can really get after the QB, and they have a deeper rotation of guys who can get pressure as well.

15. Jacksonville Jaguars: Travon Walker, Josh Allen

When he’s fully healthy, Josh Allen is capable of being a Pro Bowl type of pass rusher and gives the Jaguars a true building block on that side of the ball.

Last year, Allen had 7.5 sacks, 14 QB hits, and 12 tackles for loss and was one of the lone bright spots on a sad Jaguars team.

Allen is now joined by the top pick in the 2022 NFL Draft, Georgia’s Travon Walker.

Walker is a fascinating athlete and weapon off the edge who can do a little bit of everything. It will be a treat for football fans to be able to see Allen and Walker working together, two big, long explosive athletes with traits upon traits.

The Jaguars could have a little something brewing here in 2022.
