The Dolphins have too many "needs" and "wants" (that's how they delineate their wish list) to fill out their roster exclusively through the draft.
The club needs to use at least some remaining portions of free agency to address at least one position. And it seems linebacker is that postion.
The club in recent days has hosted free agent visits from Bryan Kehl, Quentin Groves, Jonathan Goff and Gary Guyton. All four have been in the NFL for four seasons. All four have failed with their originally teams to one degree or another.
Goff, for example, started at middle linebacker for the Giants in 2010 but missed last season after tearing an ACL prior to the regular-season opener. Guyton, who went undrafted out of Georgia Tech, started 30 games for the Patriots over the past three seasons and had 47 tackles last year. New England has, however, been lukewarm on re-signing him this offseason.
Kehl also has played for the Giants and the Rams but has been mostly a special teams contributor. He's backup material.
Groves washed out with the Jacksonville Jaguars after coming out as a pass-rusher from Auburn. He has only 2 1/2 sacks in the NFL.
Miami will likely sign one of these guys, probably before the draft because all are eager to get a job. But understand, this is bargain bin shopping by the Dolphins.
