B/R: Brandon Jones is Dolphins' 'best-kept secret'




 

The Miami Dolphins' roster is full of talented players that can impact a game each week.

With so much talent, there are a few players that could be considered "secret weapons," but Bleacher Report's Gary Davenport was able to limit it to just one, as he listed safety Brandon Jones as the team's "best-kept secret."

Jones finished the 2021 season, his second in the NFL, as one of the best pass rushers from the safety position. His jump from playing 37% of Miami's defensive snaps as a rookie to 64% the next year allowed to blitz 69 times and record 14 quarterback pressures.

While the former Texas Longhorn has made it clear that he wants to be known as more than a blitzing safety, the skill is his best attribute at the moment. Pro Football Focus gave Jones a 77.6 pass-rush grade in 2021, putting him 10th among all qualified safeties.

Here's what Davenport wrote about Jones:
