Miami Dolphins Team Needs for 2013 NFL Draft

Team Needs

1. Offensive Tackle

2. Cornerback

3. Defensive End

4. Guard

5. Running back

6. Cornerback depth

7. Defensive line depth


The Miami Dolphins have been one of the biggest offseason spenders, but they were unable to lock up their former first overall pick, offensive tackle Jake Long. The loss of Long leaves a big hole on the offensive line, though the team may move 2012 2nd round pick Jonathan Martin to left tackle, making it slightly less of an issue. Regardless, this should be an early pick for the Dolphins.

Miami traded away CB Vontae Davis before last season and lost Sean Smith in free agency. Though they signed cornerback Brett Grimes, they still need to add another starting corner and should look for depth at that position in the draft.

In addition to their tackle needs, Miami could use an upgrade to their offensive guards. The line last year struggled as a whole in protecting quarterback Ryan Tannehill, and should be upgraded as they help him develop. Also on offense, the loss of Reggie Bush does leave a hole at running back. Though they have some younger options already on the team, Miami should look to use at least a mid-round pick at this position.

Another big need for the Dolphins is finding a complementary pass rusher to Cameron Wake. Wake has established himself as one of the better pass rushers in the league, but there’s no secondary option, which holds the Dolphins’ defense back.
