It’s easy to understand why the Dolphins believe they need more cornerbacks:

1) They play in a pass-heavy league where teams lined up in three-receiver sets against them 65 percent of the time last season.

2) Lippett is coming off a major injury, and the body of work isn’t big enough on Tankersley to know if he’s an above-average starting NFL cornerback.

3) Lippett and McCain are eligible for free agency after the 2018 season, and Howard has two years left on his contract.

That said — unless a top cornerback falls to 11 (perhaps Fitzpatrick or Ward) — it would be difficult, in my view, to justify taking a cornerback in the first or second rounds if a top linebacker and tight end are available in those slots.

But know this: The Dolphins don’t believe they have fully solved their cornerback situation. And that adds yet another Dolphins need to a substantial list of them.

This a good draft to want to draft a CB.

Both Howard and Tankersley have battled injuries. It would make sense to fortify the position but Miami does not have extra draft capital.

If they think either Denzel Ward or Josh Jackson are stars in the making then I hope they don't hesitate to pull trigger at 11.
