The Dolphins are entering rebuild mode but plan to wait to draft a quarterback in the 2020 NFL Draft. Where the Dolphins sit now, at 13, they don’t have much of a chance at getting one of the top quarterbacks in this draft unless they trade up. But that’s where Kyler Murray comes in. The Heisman Trophy winner recently declared he would be entering the draft and chose football over baseball. Murray has first round talent but experts have him going on day 2 of the draft. The Dolphins would love to shore up some of their offensive/defensive line problems and rebuild from the trenches, but Murray could change all of those plans in a few months.

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