With the end of the regular season, comes the buildup to the NFL Draft. The event that gives hope to all 31 teams that were unable to hoist the Lombardi Trophy in February.

By drafting Ryan Tannehill last year, it appears the Dolphins have finally found their quarterback of the future and will now be able to build around him.
They have some obvious needs at a few positions that need to be addressed as well as others that need to be strengthened.
Here, we will focus on those needs that the Dolphins can't go into next season without addressing.
