The Dolphins are interested in adding a featured back to their running back room. But the question is when should they pull the trigger on drafting one? All eyes are on that #18 pick where the team could just select someone like Najee Harris. Or perhaps they could just wait to take one with that early second round pick at #36. The Dolphins do need to add a top running back to their roster and they should definitely use one of the picks in the top 50.
