The free agency period is all but over now and the attention of every NFL side has now turned to the draft.

The Miami Dolphins have had a fairly successful off-season, trading for exciting young wide receiver Kenny Stills and last week finalised a deal to bring in former Vikings wideout Greg Jennings on a two-year, $8million contract.

Now the Dolphins are looking at the draft, and their offense could be set for another huge boost, much to the excitement of fans.

Gurley to Miami?

According to a report from Adam Beasley of the Miami Herald, the Dolphins “covet” star running back Todd Gurley, which might mean the floor for his torn ACL-triggered fall could be the 14th overall pick.

“He’s a talent. He’s definitely a player that his ability stands out and shines,” Dolphins assistant general manager Eric Stokes said. “He’s an exciting guy to watch. We’ve enjoyed working through that process with him and seeing him. From there, we’ll see where things shake out.”

When the former Georgia running back got good news at the medical re-check recently, it cemented his status as a first-rounder. And as we get closer to draft day, it’s looking more and more likely that Gurley going in the top half of the first round, with the Dolphins at 14 looking like the speedster's lowest landing spot, unless someone else drops down the draft board. 

The Dolphins could still be left empty handed in the race for Gurley however, as there is no guarantee that one of the sides picking before them will take the risk on the rehabbing rusher.

As news circulates about Gurley’s condition, more people are beginning to feel his draft status is going to be closer to where it would have been pre-injury, and that could mean the Dolphins might have to turn their attention to another back, or another position.
