It’s no secret that the Dolphins run game is pretty much nonexistent. Heck, they are on pace to be one of the worst of all time at this pace. Granted the offensive line isn’t anything to write home about, but no one is producing. If anyone, Patrick Laird has been making the most of his chances while Kalen Ballage continues to get 1-2 yards on almost every carry. The Dolphins lost their productive backs in Kenyan Drake and Mark Walton and haven’t come up with an answer to replace them. A lot of fans have been debating on whether or not to use one of the three first round picks on a running back during the draft.

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