The Miami Dolphins have done a lot to improve their football team but have they done enough? There are areas needing to be improved.

With three first-round draft picks in 2020, two in last April’s 2021 draft, and three more first-round picks in the next two drafts, the Dolphins are poised to correct their deficiencies but as each season goes by, new holes are sometimes created.

Whether by the need for salary cap space, age, or poor play, turnover on an NFL roster is as consistent as a Hall of Fame career. It’s going to happen and it will happen every off-season.

For the Dolphins, the attention to units like corner and safety and even the offensive line has produced holes in other areas of the roster. Some are not as bad as others but they are still holes and with them come questions.

For a team to succeed and win they need to be a cohesive unit. Some teams can with when they may not have the best runners or receivers and some teams can win with a top defense and an average quarterback but to consistently put your team in a position to win each season and compete at the same level each season, reducing the turnover and developing replacements early is the key to success. That being said, these are three areas that the Dolphins should be at least a little concerned about.
