DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins hope they acquired regulars for 2018 with their first three draft picks. They’ll be satisfied to add some depth on the final day of selections.

Miami remains in the market for help at defensive tackle, cornerback, kicker and running back. The team has two four-round picks, one pick in the sixth round and two picks in the seventh Saturday.

The Dolphins took Alabama safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki and Ohio State linebacker Jerome Baker in the first three rounds. Each is expected to contend for a starting job as a rookie.

Miami hasn’t drafted a quarterback, meaning the team likely won’t add a potential eventual successor to Ryan Tannehill until at least 2019.
