Dolphins defensive tackle Christian Wilkins 'on a mission' at training camp

One of the most explosive defensive players at Dolphins training camp over the first two days with pads has been defensive tackle Christian Wilkins.

The former first round pick is on a mission this season.

“We like Christian’s energy," head coach Brian Flores said. "His juice, his theatrics. He adds a lot to the team from that standpoint.”

Wilkins knows exactly what it will take for the defensive line to be a game changer in 2021 and to play a major part in winning games. It’s a game plan easier said than done, but potent when mastered, that plan is to stop the opponents running game dead in it’s tracks.

You’ve got to stop the run," Wilkins said. "It’s tough to compete; it’s tough to be a good defense or the defense you want to be or to be great if you can’t stop the run. So we’ve got to be able to do that first and then if we take care of that, that takes care of a lot. You can either run the ball or pass the ball, so if you stop the run, you know they’re going to have to pass and things like that. That takes away half of their options, so you definitely have to just make plays in the run game and do all you can to stop it.”
