Dolphins’ draft shopping list heavy on meat and potatoes

The Dolphins need more stars on the line beyond their 2016 first-round pick, left tackle Laremy Tunsil. 

With two weeks to go before the 2019 NFL draft, quarterback remains the Miami Dolphins‘ biggest question mark, but it’s far from the only one. That’s the life of a rebuilding team trying to take a step back in order to escape the heavy cloak of mediocrity.

The Dolphins lost four of nine 2018 Week 1 starters from along the offensive and defensive lines this offseason (Ja’Wuan James, Josh Sitton, Cameron Wake and Robert Quinn), and none of those positions has been adequately addressed through free agency. Miami needs to find four new starters (at minimum), plus improve in other areas of the trenches with its returning players.

Picking four strong starters in the draft is not a realistic task, and that’s why the Dolphins have been honest about the rebuild taking multiple seasons.
