Miami’s Top 3 Needs After Free Agency
The Dolphins made yet another Free Agency splash this year by acquiring the best free agent on the board, DT Ndamokung Suh. They didn’t stop there, as they were able to get Pro-Bowl TE Jordan Cameron and CB Brice McCain. They didn’t stop there as they shipped out LB Danelle Ellerbe and a third round pick for promising young WR Kenny Stills. They also shipped out WR Mike Wallace for chump change(but that’s another story). Even with all the acquisitions, Miami still has needs.

Here are the top 3:
The Dolphins offensive line has been mediocre for a while, mainly due to the instability of the guard position. Many have tried (John Jerry, Richie Incognito, Daryn Colledge) but none have been the long term solution at guard. 2014 third rounder Billy Turner may not be ready to assume the starting position, as pass protection and conditioning are his biggest weaknesses. And I don’t think Miami wants to go through a season with Dallas Thomas as there starting guard. Miami must draft a guard either the first or second round in this year’s draft.
Ever since coming to Miami a couple of years ago, Brent Grimes has been sensational. However Miami, has had problems finding another cornerback to complement Grimes. Miami signed former Pittsburgh CB Brice McCain this off season, but more help is needed. Jamar Taylor has potential, but hasn’t been healthy since coming into the league. Will Davis also has potential but must be more physical. Miami’s corners(outside of Grimes) are all unproven, which is why Miami must draft one in April.
Miami Dolphins czar Mike Tannenbaum has embarked on this new youth movement. No one needs to look any further than Miami’s WR unit: Kenny Stills(22), Jarvis Landry(22), Rishard Matthews(25), and Matt Hazel(23) are all young and talented players. However, Miami needs some veteran leadership among this group. Right now it’s the blind leading the blind for Miami’s receiving core.
