Which position group should the Dolphins target with their first selection in the 2023 NFL Draft?

Photo by Jonathan Bachman/ The Miami Dolphins have had a solid offseason, yet there’s still work to be done in the 2023 NFL Draft. The Miami Dolphins only possess four picks in the upcoming 2023 NFL Draft, and none of those picks come in the first round due to the Bradley Chubb trade that was executed last season before the trade deadline and another first round selection being forfeited due to Stephen Ross’ tampering with Tom Brady. The Dolphins won’t be on the clock on the first night of the NFL Draft barring another blockbuster deal from general manager...
