Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NCAA Football: College Football Playoff National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

With the 39th selection, the Dolphins added another big body to the offensive line. The team drafted Robert Hunt out of Louisiana Lafayette and will be able to play either right tackle or right guard.

With the 56th pick, the Dolphins added Raekwon Davis to bolster the defensive line. I am sensing a theme here as the Dolphins are selecting big bodies to rebuild the trenches. Davis isn’t going to be a sack machine, but will be a monster stopping the run in the middle of the d-line.

The Dolphins finally addressed the safety position with the selection of Brandon Jones with the 70th pick. Eric Rowe and Bobby McCain handled safety duties last year after being converted from cornerback. So adding a true safety was sort of a need.

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