Welcome to Draft Day! And as you know, today couldn’t be any more important to the Miami Dolphins if Kevin Costner and Jennnifer Garner were running their front office.

Last week we asked you to answer some questions to help the Fins make their first-round pick. And loads of you did just that.

Over 3,000 people played the game, and the people couldn’t have been clearer in terms of what they’re hoping the Dolphins do tonight.

You want Ezekiel Elliott.

Sure, the talented running back from Ohio State would likely require Miami to trade up from No. 13 — and Ohio State players haven’t exactly turned out smashingly for the Dolphins in the past — but about 18 percent of you say he’s the guy the team needs most to get back into the AFC playoff hunt.

Defensive back is another obvious need for the Fins after losing former All-Pro Brent Grimes to the Buccaneers. And the DB you said would be the best fit for the Dolphins at No. 13 is William Jackson III from Houston, who ended up with a smidge over 11 percent of the vote.

Corner Eli Apple, another Buckeyes prospect, came in third overall at 10 percent.

Reggie Ragland of Alabama was the top linebacker according to your selections, while Michigan State’s Jack Conklin came in as your favorite offensive lineman.

Here is the full list of possible draft picks:
