With their third and final first round draft pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins may want to go out and get themselves a franchise running back. While it is not sexy to go out and get a running back in round one, you have to believe that a guy like Jonathan Taylor from Wisconsin is the kind of running back who is an exception.

Last year, the Oakland Raiders picked Josh Jacobs in the first round out of Alabama, and he has helped give the Silver and Black a new look on offense. In Taylor, they would be getting the same kind of  three-down back, as he has the ability to make plays in both the run, and passing game.

Taylor still has a year of eligibility left, but with how short the shelf life is for running backs, he is likely to declare for the draft after the Badgers season is over. In Miami, he would be a star, forming a nice duo on offense with fellow rookie  Justin Herbert, who we have the team taking with the No. 4 overall selection to be their franchise quarterback.

The Minnesota Vikings are fresh off a solid victory against the Detroit Lions this past weekend, where they held their division rival to only seven points. However, it was their efforts the week before that have the fan base worried, as they were absolutely shredded by Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks,

Watching that game, it became clear that the Vikings need help in their secondary, especially at the cornerback spot. With the No. 24 overall selection next April, the Vikings could target a guy like Paulson Adebo, who is one of the better cover corners this draft class has to offer.

The Vikings have a lot of what you look for in a championship team, but if they cannot defend against the elite signal-callers in the league, they are never going to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Adebo can help them get better in the back-end, and if Kirk Cousins continues to produce at quarterback, look out NFC.
