Post Pre-draft look at the line up
QB-Tannehill
RB-Miller
FB-Thomas
TE-Clay
WR-Wallace
WR-Hartline
LT-Albert
LG-Garner
C-Pouncy
RG-Smith
RT-?

DE-Wake
DT-Starks
DT-Odrick
DE-Vernon
OLB-Wheeler
MLB-Ellerbe
OLB-Misi
CB-Grimes
CB-Finnegan
SS-Jones
FS-Delmas

P-Fields
K-Sturgis

They have already made move to plug several holes and add depth. OL and LB seem to be the biggest areas of need going into the draft now. It is really early but I am happy with the moves that Hickey is making and it is looking like he is closing the deal with the players that he wants.

So last year's entire draft looks like a bust, no starters.

How have they made several moves to plug holes and add depth?

The only improvement (arguably) has been swapping McKinnie for Albert. They haven't been plugging holes, they've been swapping their own Free Agents for comparable outside ones.

That said, there is still a long way to go in FA.

They had 1 starting O-lineman under contract. That leaves 4 holes. They've plugged 2 of them. They had 0 starting CB's (prior to resigining Grimes). They now have Grimes and added a vet to push the youngsters and add depth at least.
They had 1 starting DT. That left 2 holes (consdering they rotate as much as they do, they have 3 starters for practical purposes.) They filled both of them.
They had a hole at S. They filled it.

I get your point, but when a player is no longer under contract, that's a hole you have to fill, and they've been doing that. I would add that losing Martin and Jerry constitutes addition by subtraction. Incognito will be missed on the field. I hope we can draft someone to make us forget about him soon. I like their approach so far.

In years past, we had glaring needs (WR, OL) and ignored them throughout FA and the draft. At least that doesn't seem to be happening.

Re-signing your own players does not count as plugging holes, IMO. But we'll agree to disagree there.

For me, on paper, we're not better than last year yet.

I would say we're better at LT, RG (if that's where Smith lines up) and CB IF Finnegan is healthy but I agree we have a long way to go.

I see a lot of potential, but aside from Sturgis, no starters. I do think that Dion Jordan and Jamar Taylor to have the potential to start.
