The Dolphins need to either draft a quality 3 down back or add one in free agency. The problem with adding a starting RB in FA is the price ... and the fact that their best physical assets were used prior to becoming a FA as the position greatly wears down a back. Duke Johnson? Keeper. He runs hard and well in Miami, so, he has great motivation, but he has been a backup throughout his career. Gaskin? A good change of pace back, too, but perhaps Lindsey is the better option.

Running backs
Grade: D+

The Dolphins opted not to invest any high draft capital or significant cap space in the running back position and got their money’s worth during the season. Though the offensive line struggled at times, the unit ranked ninth in ESPN’s run block win rate, suggesting there were more opportunities in the running game than one would think. The Dolphins ranked 30th in rushing yards per game and 31st in yards per attempt. Malcolm Brown was a wash as a free agency pickup and missed most of the season with a quadriceps injury. Of 50 qualified rushers, Myles Gaskin ranked 49th in yards after contact per attempt. It was telling that the Dolphins’ best backs, Duke Johnson and Phillip Lindsay, were midseason pickups and ended the season atop the depth chart.

Assuming the Dolphins go O-Line in round 1, Brian Robinson from Bama would be a great pickup in round 2.

That could be because they were run blocking on most passing plays as well.
