Many fans and analysts believe the Miami Dolphins could use their second round pick on a running back, even though the team brought back all their backs from last year. Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson Jr. were the focal points of the rushing attack and don’t be surprised when it is them again this season. The Dolphins running game wasn’t ranked that highly last season, but Mike McDaniel doesn’t believe it is the running backs fault. The Dolphins have a lot more urgent needs to address, perhaps beefing up an offensive line that could produce better rushing results.
