The first week of the 2020 NFL free agency period has come and gone, with the Miami Dolphins being highly active on the market. The team added starters and depth pieces all over the roster, shaking up the depth chart as well as the team’s draft needs for April.

Draft needs: Offensive tackle, quarterback, edge, running back, safety; The Dolphins will likely look to their first pick in the 2020 NFL Draft to add their franchise quarterback, then continue to address areas of need with their other 13 picks. Doubling up on offensive tackle, even using the second and third first-round picks they have, could be an option. The addition of Jordan Howard to the running backs group likely will not prevent the team from selecting a rusher in the draft, probably on day two. Despite having nine edge rushers on the roster, including two newly signed members of the team, edge - either defensive end in an 4-3 front or outside linebacker in a 3-4 scheme - a young edge rusher early in the Draft makes a lot of sense. The Dolphins could look safety sometime in the Day 2/Day 3 period of the Draft, but it does not feel like they are making the position a priority - they seem to like Bobby McCain and Eric Rowe in those positions; a true strong safety addition could allow the team to move McCain back to the nickel cornerback role.
