It was reported earlier in the week that the Dolphins expressed interest in the draft's top running back, Ezekiel Elliot. The Dolphins need some help at running back after losing Lamar Miller and they didn't help themselves by adding Daniel Thomas. Last week the Dolphins met with Arkansas running back Alex Collins. Collins is projected to go in rounds 2-4 and wouldn't be a bad option for the Dolphins.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
