The run defense actually improved last year, but it definitely needs to get better. I think some of it is the scheme as the Dolphins load up a lot of DBs, but they could use a good all around ILB in this draft.

Because the Dolphins were so exceptional in several key defensive categories — best in third-down conversion defense; sixth-best in points allowed per game; first in takeaways per game — that masked an issue that isn’t a big weakness but isn’t a strength, either: Run defense.

Miami permitted 4.5 yards per carry, which tied for 17th to 20th in the league. That’s the same average the Dolphins permitted per carry in 2019, though the 2019 team allowed more yards on the ground than the 2020 team (2,166 to 1,862).

How important is that statistic? This past season, four teams held opponents to less than 4.0 yards per carry this past season, and all four were playoff teams: Tampa Bay (3.8), Indianapolis (3.8), New Orleans (3.8) and Seattle (3.9).
