Miami Dolphins Lack Depth at RB

Tyler Dove addresses one of the Miami Dolphins' remaining problems: lack of depth at the RB position.

The Miami dolphins still lack quality depth at running back. Sure they addressed the position in the NFL draft but still lack experience.

Let's begin with the presumed starter Jay Ajayi, who rushed for just 187 yards on 49 carries last year with 1 touchdown.

Behind him we have Kenyan Drake, a third round draft pick, who despite being very versatile is also very injury prone missing several games in his last two seasons atAlabama.

After that we have several players that the verdict is still out on starting with Damien Williams. Or the team has players that have never lived up to the hype of their college promise such as Daniel Thomas, who is entering his third stint with the team.

Alongside the not so accomplished veteran Thomas is Isaiah Pead, who has less than 100 career rushing yards. The team has put a lot of stock into helping quarterback Ryan Tannehill succeed this season with the hiring of head coach Adam Gase and drafting left tackle Laremy Tunsil with the 13th overall pick.

In order for Tannehill and this offense to succeed, they will need to be able to rely on the running game which I am very skeptical of. Arian Foster, who the Dolphins brought in for a visit in March, still remains a possibility and if he could stay healthy, he could bring much needed experience to the Dolphins running game.
