NFL: New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports

While Mike McDaniel was with the San Francisco 49ers, the team had great success with the run game. The 49ers did this with running backs that were undrafted or players that were late round picks.

Do the Miami Dolphins change their approach and draft one of the top backs in this years draft? Or perhaps add a proven veteran? Maybe someone like Leonard Fournette?

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