Miami Dolphins have to Draft a Quarterback in this year’s Draft
Since the off season began, the Miami Dolphins have been cleaning house. Dolfans expecting the team to make deep playoff run are in for a rude awakening though. This will be a rebuilding year for Miami’s pro football franchise.
For starters, head coach Adam Gase got rid of the Dolphins’ Pro Bowl center Mike Pouncey, Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and Pro Bowl wide receiver Jarvis Landry. These moves came after the Dolphins traded Pro Bowl runningback Jay Ajayi during the 2017 season. Ryan Tannehill, the Dolphins No Bowl quarterback, is coming back from a year-long injury without a solid center to protect him and a clutch wide receiver to throw the ball to.
It’s obvious Miami is hitting the reset button just in time for the April 26 NFL draft. There are so many holes on this team that it is hard to figure out how to plug them all. Although if any of the top four quarterback prospects — Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield, Josh Allen, Lamar Jackson or Josh Rosen — are available at the 11th pick, the Dolphins should take him. Miami needs to have its quarterback of the future in place should Tannehill get hurt again or fail to regain his form.
