While this has exceeded expectations, there are still improvements to be made. On top of improvements at key positions, Miami also faces a few important players heading into free agency, with no guarantee that any of them will remain in South Florida.
With new players needed at key positions, and with players who might have to be replaced, what better way to spend the bye week than looking at some prospects the Miami Dolphins should consider for next April's draft?
I chose 25 prospects that the Dolphins ought to consider and start circling on their draft board. Why 25? Well part of it is to occupy as much of your time as humanly possible reading this, and partly out of sheer boredom since there's no game to preview this week
Not every player Miami (or the fans) would desire will be available, so it's best to have a backup plan at each draft position. I would recommend that Miami chooses the best player available at the positions of wide receiver, tight end, cornerback, safety, and guard with each pick. Most of the prospects on this list play those positions.
Now these numbers aren't ranking these players in any particular order, but it's a safe bet that the higher the number of these players, the higher the round they will go in.
So get comfortable with your tablet or laptop (seriously, get comfortable it's a long slideshow), and let's take a look at the 25 players Miami should have on its board.
