The Dolphins are perfectly set up for success with a solid roster and plenty of high draft picks thanks to some excellent trade dealings, but they still fell short of the play-offs last year.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was on a roll and many will feel that he would’ve taken them to the post-season, but the decision to bench him for Tua Tagovailoa resulted in the wheels coming off this offense.
They initially picked at number 3 so they option to take another QB was there, but they’ve shown a commitment to Tua in his second season by going for some weapons on offense instead:

Two of the biggest needs going into the Draft were finding a legit WR1 and an edge rusher, so it looks like they’ve addressed those in the first round.
Jaylen Waddle played with Tua at Alabama so there will be hopes that they can reignite that connection in the NFL.
Waddle can have an immediate impact then that should open up some space for Fuller and Parker to thrive, while Hunter Long and Mike Gesicki could be a formidable TE duo too.
The big questions will come on defense as they have plenty of quality on the back-end, but will they find enough of a pass rush to generate pressure and make the whole thing work?
The O-Line was also addressed so everything is now set up for Tua to succeed in his second year, so watching his development will be one of the major intrigues going into next season.
