The Miami Dolphins haven't trotted out a superstar quarterback since the days of Dan Marino, and they're coming off a season that saw the incumbent starter, Ryan Tannehill, undergo ACL surgery, which led to them luring Jay Cutler out of retirement and using a combination of Cutler, Matt Moore, and even David Fales to get through the season. In short, it wouldn't be entirely shocking to see the Dolphins use the 11th overall pick in this year's draft on a quarterback. At the NFL combine on Wednesday, Dolphins coach Adam Gase -- a supposed quarterback guru -- addressed the team's quarterback situation. On the one hand, Gase threw his entire support behind Tannehill, saying his recovery is coming along nicely and that he'll be the starter in 2018. On the other hand, Gase admitted that he'd love to draft a quarterback this year and every year. OK, so let's start with Gase's decision to back Tannehill. Nobody should be surprised about the way Gase feels about Tannehill. During their first and only season together in 2016, Tannehill achieved career-highs in completion percentage, touchdown percentage, yards per attempt, and passer rating while leading the Dolphins to their first playoff appearance since 2008. So, the two immediately experienced success together, and it's not entirely unreasonable to think they could reignite the spark in 2018 after a year-long hiatus.
