Way too Early 2021 Dolphins 1st round Mock Draft

For the last two years fans and the media alike have been pounding the table for the Miami Dolphins to draft a lead running back that can carry the load on offense and ultimately lessen the stress on Dolphins QBs.

The last two years offensively has indicated that as the Dolphins have tried numerous times to get the running game going, bringing in Chad O’Shea from New England as the OC and Jordan Howard to help the running game, but it proved to be a dud.

In 2020 Brian Flores brought in Chan Gailey to get Tua Tagovailoa up to speed in the NFL with the passing game; however the running back room was like a never ending rotation due to Covid-19 restrictions, injuries and players picked up from the streets.

Myles Gaskin was a bright spot in the running back room averaging 4.1 YPC, but only played in 10 games due to Covid-19 restrictions ad injuries.

Salvon Ahmed was decent for some games filling in for Gaskin and exploded against New England in his first ever start.

The Dolphins did sign Running Back Malcolm Brown in Free agency, but I believe that is a stop gap solution in the power running game and to ease new rookie 7th round draft pick Gerrid Doaks into the NFL. As of now the Miami Dolphins running back room is an unproven entity.

We look towards the 2022 NFL Draft for this solution and Ryan Roberts of Coast to Coast Scouting finds a solution to a lingering problem, he selects Iowa State Running Back Breece Hall, who could potentially become a Heisman Candidate.

The Dolphins missed out on Najee Harris, Travis Etienne, and Javonte Williams last cycle, still leaving a question mark at running back. Hall lands in their laps, boasting the physical profile of a lead back on the next level.

Boasting a well-rounded skillset that includes a fantastic blend of speed and power, Breece Hall has a three-down skill set and the versatility to fit in any offensive scheme. If Hall can build up another strong 2021 campaign season he coudl easily become a 2021 first round pick, maybe as the first running back off the board.

Remember, Miami received the San Francisco 49ers 2021 first round pick when trading down from Pick 3 to Pick 12 and then traded away one of their 2021 first round picks to the Philadelphia Eagles in order to trade up back to the 6th pick and select Jaylen Waddle. As it stands The Eagles end up selecting 20th indicating Vegas projects the Dolphins to make the playoffs next season since the Eagles hold one of the Dolphins picks, The Dolphins hold the 49ers first round pick and they would be selecting 26th.

If the Dolphins Running game does not have a major improvement this upcoming season, the Dolphins could draft a First Round Running back and it could be be Breece Hall.
