The Miami Dolphins already signed Knowshon Moreno to a one-year deal earlier this offseason and both Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas remain on the roster, but the Dolphins are still reportedly interested in drafting a running back.
Despite the fact the Dolphins just signed Knowshon Moreno, despite the fact they like Lamar Miller, I’m told the personnel department would still like to add one more running back — likely somewhere between the fourth-fifth rounds — to add juice and get more talent in the backfield.
That player, from what is considered a deep running back class in this draft, must have one of the following abilities:
He needs to make defenders miss.
Moreno, while talented, may not be anything more than a one-year stop-gap with the Dolphins and it’s possible the team doesn’t have much confidence in either Miller or Thomas, thus the desire to add an additional running back.
There haven’t been any specific players linked to the Dolphins at this time, though we’ll probably hear of more defined interest as the draft draws near.
