1. Wide receiver
The Miami Dolphins have survived with Brian Hartline and Davone Bess, who have developed into quality second and third options. But Ryan Tanneshill needs a true No. 1 receiver to help him develop into the quarterback the Dolphins believe he can be. Ideally, the Dolphins can land a tall, outside receiver to complement Bess, who excels in the slot.
2. Defensive end
The Dolphins have been playing Jared Odrick out of position at defensive end when he would be better suited to play the three-technique tackle position. Cameron Wake is an elite pass rusher, but replacing Odrick with a more traditional end.
3. Offensive line
If Jake Long isn’t re-signed, this need jumps to No. 1. Jonathan Martin struggled as a rookie at right tackle and the Dolphins can’t afford to shift him to left tackle. In fact, they should probably consider a shift inside to guard.
