Why Cameron Wake?

I think the better question is "why doesn't Cameron Wake get the attention he deserves?"

The answer to that is relatively simple: he plays for a losing team, the Miami Dolphins, a team that hasn't been relevant since 2008 -- the year before Wake joined the team.

Other than that caveat, Wake has it all going for him. Wake plays one of the defensive "glamour" positions as a pass-rushing edge defender, and is one of the best at it in the game right now. He's put up monstrous numbers, with 43 sacks in his first four seasons, and is one of just seven players in NFL history to have two seasons of over 14 sacks in his first four seasons in the league.

He's also incredibly scheme flexible, having lined up in the 3-4 as an outside linebacker, and last year in the 4-3 as a defensive end. His versatility gives the Dolphins a world of options in how to execute their defensive scheme next season.

Stats website Pro Football Focus rated him among the best pass-rushers in the league at either spot, so the Dolphins would be getting bang for their buck without question.

Hopefully other players will rise up to "greatness" on this team. It's about time this team started to draft playmakers instead of role players.

It's a shame he was signed in the league so late, only played a few seasons and his window is already slowly caving in. We won't be witnessing him for near as long as we did JT, hopefully with some miracle and stroke of luck he gets a ring with us before he is forced to retire.

he strikes me as the type of athlete that can play at a high level at 34 and 35 years old.
