This team has a few needs and quarterback is not one of them in the draft. However, the idea of adding a first round quarterback to sit behind Tannehill (or just outright take his job) has been popping up in recent weeks. Tannehill has not played a down of football in over a year thanks to the knee injury he suffered last season and then injured again in training camp. The Dolphins need to add a good backup quarterback to step in if Tannehill were to get injured again. Adam Gase has stated his loyalty to Tannehill, but will that loyalty be tested on day one of the NFL Draft?

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