Edge Rusher






In that order, hopefully they are smart enough to avoid reaching for a need though.  If guys like Denzel Ward/Fitzpatrick are gone but Derwin James or Vita Vea fall to them, take them and fill your needs in the later rounds somehow.

Miami Dolphins post-FA needs:

1A) LB - the only notable LBs currently on the roster are Kiko Alonso and sophomore Raekwon McMillan, a 2nd round pick in 2017 who tore his ACL in the preseason.

1B) TE - I think this might be the shallowest TE room in the NFL, with the three guys they have under roster playing less than 1,000 combined snaps in their careers. 


big gap


S - TJ McDonald had a forgettable 8 games in 2017, and stud Reshad Jones is 30. While Jones is a roster lock until 2020, for 2019 and beyond at least one safety spot could be upgraded.

CB - Miami has a quartet of CBs on their rookie deals who have seen signficant playtime, all of whom have flashed to various degrees but none of whom have put it together consistently to this point (still time). Bobby McCain is in the last year of his rookie deal, Tony Lippett is coming back from a ruptured Achilles, so there is plenty reason to add talent here.

DT - Philips and Godcheaux are a good pairing, but how well will either perform without Suh drawing all the double teams? There's plenty to still learn, and Philips will be a FA in 2019.

QB - Miami absolutely needs to draft a QB to groom behind Tannehill. The time for relying on washed-up vets is past.


later rounds, depth needed but immediate starters are set


DE - Wake, Quinn, Hayes, Harris makes for a crowded DE room, but there's no guarantee three of those names are still playing football in 2018.

OL - Miami's starters are essentially set at every spot for 2018, but there is uncertainty in 2019 and beyond for C, LG, RT at least.

RB - a developmental back is needed behind Drake and Gore.
