Three Miami Dolphins are among the Top 100 in the NFL, according to a ranking of performance exclusively based on the 2016 season released by Pro Football Focus.
But wide receiver Jarvis Landry was not among them.
Here are all the wide receivers Pro Football Focus ranked ahead of Landry:
• Julio Jones (6)
• Mike Evans (12)
• Antonio Brown (21)
• Odell Beckham, Jr. (51)
• T.Y. Hilton (54)
• Doug Baldwin (63)
• Jordy Nelson (74)
• Larry Fitzgerald (89)
• Michael Thomas (93)
• Tyreek Hill (100)
Landry was tied for seventh in the NFL with 94 catches this season, fourth-highest in team history.
Landry owns three of Miami’s top six single-season reception marks. He also finished tied for seventh in the NFL with 26 third-down receptions.
Landry feels he does not receive the respect he deserves. He was upset at his ranking in an NFL Network poll prior to last season. Landry was 98th so he printed out a poster about it and hung it at his locker.
How the Dolphins view Landry is more important. And extending him this offseason is a priority.
Pro Football Focus ranked running back Jay Ajayi as the 31st-best player in the NFL this season.
PFF wrote about Ajayi:
“The Miami Dolphins’ season turned around when they put Jay Ajayi in the starting lineup and began to ride him as far as he would carry them — which, as it turns out, was pretty far. Ajayi ended the year with 1,272 yards, but he gained a staggering 900 of them after contact, as the Miami offensive line did little to aid his progress. Ajayi was the hardest back in the game to bring down and stop, as he broke a league-high 58 tackles on the ground — 11 more than any other runner — despite ranking 15th in attempts.”
Defensive end Cameron Wake ranked 45th.
Defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh ranked 52nd.
