Davon Godchaux had just finished saying how he cant be expected to replace Ndamukong Suh because, in his eyes, its impossible for any player to match what any other player has done.

But in the next breath, Godchaux couldnt help but admit that with the Dolphins releasing Suh, who later joined the Los Angeles Rams, he knows how much the team will be counting on him in 2018.

No, Davon Godchaux no longer is just a fifth-round draft pick, a rookie with minimal expectations placed upon him.

Theres little chance the Dolphins would have released Suh had it not been for Godchauxs emergence. Now, its up to Godchaux to build on that, and for fellow young defensive tackles Jordan Phillips and Vincent Taylor to make the Dolphins cost-cutting move look shrewd.

Most definitely, Godchaux said of the extra motivation. Got to. To replace his shoes, got to. Got to pick up the game. What? Five-time Pro Bowler? Got to pick the game up.

Cornerback Bobby McCain said he has confidence in the trio.

Its big shoes to fill, but we can get it done, McCain said.

Godchaux appeared in 15 games, starting five. He finished with 40 tackles, a forced fumble and one pass defensed.
