The Dolphins haven't trusted Lamar Miller in the past, and now that they were willing to give him more touches this season, he has disappointed them. Miller, consequently, may not be back next year, as he's set to hit free agency in March.
Ezekiel Elliott is a first-round prospect despite the fact that the running back position has been devalued. Elliott, who was amazing in Ohio State's championship run, has drawn comparisons to Fred Taylor.

The Dolphins have a disappointing defensive line, but their main issue on defense is their secondary, which has holes at both cornerback and safety.

Many expected the Dolphins to take a linebacker early in the 2015 NFL Draft, but they decided to pass on the position. Miami could address the position with a rare athlete and play-maker like Jack via the 2016 NFL Draft.
Jack notched 15 tackles, one interception and a pass broken up in his shortened 2015 season. He also had two carries for seven yards and a touchdown on offense. The junior suffered a knee injury in practice and is done for the year. He has already withdrawn from UCLA to prepare for the 2016 NFL Draft.
As a sophomore, Jack racked up 87 tackles with eight tackles for a loss, seven passes broken up, one interception and one forced fumble. While only a freshman starter in 2013, Jack became a superstar who was named the Pac-12's Offensive AND Defensive Freshman of the Year. On the defensive side of the ball, he recorded 75 tackles with 11 passes broken up and two interceptions. His pass-coverage skills for a freshman were outstanding. Jack ran for 267 yards on 38 carries (7.0 average) with seven touchdowns, too.
Jack's natural pass-coverage skills are extremely impressive. NFL evaluators are going to love what he can do in the passing game. Don't be surprised if the 6-foot-1, 230-pounder improves annually with his huge upside.

Miami needs help in the secondary at corner and safety. The team could use a safety upgrade over Walt Aikens, plus Brent Grimes is aging, and Brice McCain shouldn't be starting. Here's an upgrade at corner.
So far in 2015, Redmond has notched 21 tackles and two interceptions. The 6-foot, 185-pounder was a tough corner for the Bulldogs in 2014. He racked up 51 tackles with five passes broken up and three interceptions. It was his first season as a starter. Redmond is a physical defender who has upside to develop.
Once considered a 1st round prospect for the 2015 draft, Calhoun smartly returned to school for his senior year as he didn’t quite meet those expectations. He’s using this extra year to add to his arsenal of pass-rush moves, coupling this with his fluid movement to help overcome his lack of power. Cameron Wake still may have a good season or two left in him, but Miami could potentially fail to re-sign Olivier Vernon. With Dion Jordan getting more suspensions than sacks in after his rookie season, it would be a great idea for Miami to add insurance on the edge, even if they do re-sign Vernon
