2012 Free Agents: PFF Ranks Pass Rushers

Is it any surprise that Mario Williams is the top pass rusher available this free agency period?

The Miami Dolphins will be looking to make a splash during this up coming free agency period. While everyone knows the team will be looking to upgrade the quarterback position, the other major need for the team has been hidden behind the Peyton Manning and Matt Flynn debate. The Dolphins need to find a pass rusher to play opposite Cameron Wake, and the 2012 free agency could be exactly where they find the right guy.

Which brings us to Pro Football Focus, who recently ranked the top ten pass rushers available when the new league year begins on March 13.

Below you will find the listing of the top ten, and you can hit the link above to see the write-ups about each free agent.
