2. Raekwon McMillan
Since the Dolphins need all of the extra help they can get for wins in 2019, and still believe Raekwon McMillan is a bright part of the future on the defensive side of the football, it seems unlikely that Miami would be willing to move on from the former Ohio State star.
However, even if the Dolphins prefer to hang on to McMillan for the long run, this still shouldn’t stop the Rams from at least trying since the worst thing that could happen is Miami says no.
Expectations were high for McMillan when the Dolphins used a second-round pick on the linebacker during the draft in 2017, but unfortunately his rookie campaign was cut short after suffering a torn ACL during the preseason.
Recovering from this sort of injury is never easy for any athlete, but watching McMillan bounce back by starting every game last year for Miami shows what kind of potential is there.
Between the injury to Micah Kiser along with players like Clay Matthews only being the short-term answer, the Rams would certainly benefit from adding another linebacker to the mix on defense, especially one only in their third NFL season.
Wade Phillips always loves taking on projects to help certain players develop, and there’s no question the addition of a talent such as McMillan would put a huge smile on the defensive coordinator’s face.
