Dolphins fans are divided as to what the team should do at running back.
A lot of you have suggested to me that the Dolphins should reach in the second—or even first—round to pick up Auburn's Tre Mason, a player I won't even seriously consider not because of his skills (which are many), but because Miami has much more pressing needs that should be addressed in the first three rounds.
Some have also suggested that Miami should leave the running backs alone, arguing that with an improved offensive line, Lamar Miller will have the chance to be something special.
I'm a bit in the middle, feeling that Miami should pick up a running back in the draft, but first should address the offensive and defensive lines.
I thought a lot about this and considered mocking Charles Sims to the Dolphins in the third round; however, based off a lot of research, I found that Billy Turner might be a viable option for the Fins in Round 3 and thought that would be the more prudent pick.
What makes that pick more prudent than Sims is the fact that in Round 4, Boston College's Andre Williams will be available. Williams can pair up better with Miller and provide the Dolphins with a running back they haven't had since Ricky Williams and Ronnie Brown—a between-the-tackles power back who can pick up yards on 3rd-and-short.
Dolphins GM Dennis Hickey has a good track record at picking up running backs while in Tampa Bay, and Williams fits the mold of running backs he likes. He's the pick in Round 4.
