I think The Don and Dan the Man would have loved having Drake as the running back, although he still needs to work on his pass blocking. According to PFF, Drake ranked 65th out of 124 they deemed qualifiable.

Kenyan Drake. This is a contract season for Drake, and not enough people are talking about that. The Dolphins seem to be in wait-and-see mode, and I suspect we’ll see more of Drake in his fourth season. The last staff didn’t fully trust Drake and featured veteran Frank Gore instead, but Gore was not the future and was not brought back.https://www.palmbeachpost.com/sports/20 ... am-in-2019
Drake is young, explosive, dynamic, pretty much all the things Miami needs more of. As much as the roster is being churned, there are key young talents to build around including cornerback Xavien Howard (signed long term), left tackle Laremy Tunsil (likely to be signed long term at some point) and defensive back Minkah Fitzpatrick.
But getting more out of talented young players like Drake, tight end Mike Gesicki and pass rusher Charles Harris is an ultimate challenge for this new coaching staff. Perhaps fresh eyes and new schemes will benefit Gesicki and Harris. But no player should benefit more from a staff change than Drake. Feed him the ball. And let him show just what he can do. In case, you know, the Miami Miracle wasn’t enough for you.
