I see no evidence of this. Not even a TE added as a rookie free agent.

Maybe not in the first round, but possibly as high as the second round.
Jimmy Graham was believed to be on their radar. Rob Gronkowski of Arizona was definitely on the Dolphins’ board in Round 2, according to a league source, but they went for Koa Misi instead.
Ed Dickson, Aaron Hernandez, Dennis Pitta, Garrett Graham, Clay Harbor — all were gone by the end of the fourth round.
So, was sometimes-maligned incumbent Anthony Fasano surprised when the Dolphins not only failed to draft a single tight end with any of their eight picks, but didn’t even sign one among the pool of undrafted free agents?
