The Miami Dolphins only have four draft picks in the upcoming NFL Draft. A couple of years ago, General Manager Chris Grier started trading away star players and stockpiled a plethora of draft picks to with the notion of adding more talent to this Dolphins team. Last offseason, with the picks Grier acquired over a couple of years the team traded for Tyreek Hill, then Bradley Chubb, and then Jalen Ramsey. The stockpile of draft picks is starting to dry up, but Grier has made this a better football team with some of his draft selections and trades. This Dolphins roster doesn’t have too many weaknesses and Grier could continue with his ‘best player available’ approach.
