The Miami Dolphins hope they acquired regulars for 2018 with their first three draft picks. They’ll be satisfied to add some depth on the final day of selections.
Miami remains in the market for help at defensive tackle, cornerback, kicker and running back. The team has two fourth-round picks, one pick in the sixth round and two picks in the seventh Saturday.
Looking for some potential options for the Dolphins on Day 3?
Available defensive tackles include Virginia Tech’s Tim Settle, Miami’s RJ McIntosh and Kendrick Norton or Michigan’s Maurice Hurst, a late first- or early second-round talent whose stock has seemingly fallen due to some teams’ “serious concerns” about a heart condition.
At cornerback, the Fins could consider big and athletic Holton Hill of Texas, Alabama’s Anthony Averett or Tarvarus McFadden from Florida State.
Florida kicker Eddy Pineiro seems like a possible target in the later rounds, since the Dolphins are currently without anyone at that position on the roster.
The Dolphins took Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki and Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker in the first three rounds. Each is expected to contend for a starting job as a rookie.
Miami hasn’t drafted a quarterback, meaning the team likely won’t add a potential eventual successor to Ryan Tannehill until at least 2019.
