It seems like just yesterday it was Kickoff Sunday, but the 2018 NFL season is already more than half over. Though the Miami Dolphins are still — technically — alive in the playoff hunt at 5-4, the team has looked dead in the water the past few weeks. With the Dolphins playoff hopes fading ever faster, why not get a jump-start on what the team can do to improve their fortunes next season? That’s right folks; it’s time to start thinking about the 2019 NFL Draft!
The more that I’ve explored the player evaluation aspect of things, the more I’ve grown to love this time of year. The time when the college football season is kicking into high gear, and the cream of the crop is starting to rise. There is a ton of work left to be done in the process, but guys are already starting to separate themselves in advance of next spring’s draft.
#Dolphins fam, now that the season is half over it’s time to start looking towards the draft. Which position should the team be targeting

A few weeks ago I posted a poll question to my followers on Twitter (throw me a follow @SpoonfulofSport if you haven’t already), asking the fans what positions they feel the team should target in next year’s draft. Of course, the poll was informed by my views on the team in the options I presented, but for this piece and the ones to follow, I’m going with what the fans have chosen.
In the coming weeks, I’m going to be giving you, the fans, a look at a few names at each of these positions that I think should be high on the Miami Dolphins draft board. For today, here’s a look at the top three areas the fans believe the Miami Dolphins need to target come next spring.
