The term ‘Swiss Army knife’ is probably one of the most hackneyed and overused phrases in the vernacular of NFL fans. If a player primarily known as a reciever runs with the ball a few times, he’s called a Swiss Army knife. If a defensive tackle gets the football on a goal line play, he’s called a Swiss Army knife. And, yes, if a defensive end who plays for the Miami Dolphins runs forty yards in a straight line, against a much larger and slower opposing player, we’re ready to anoint him as the next A.J. Duhe and pencil him in as a Pro Bowl starter.
Every once in a while, though, a player comes along who actually lives up to the hype that’s being generated about him. With the eleventh overall pick in the first round of the 2018 draft, the Dolphins were fortunate enough to find such a player still on the board, in Minkah Fitzpatrick.
