We continue our staff predictions of the Miami Dolphins draft with our next 7 round mock-up of Phins predictions.
Dolphins get another crack at a future QB that can learn behind Garrad/Moore.
Curry can help fill the pass rushing void opposite Cameron Wake in either the 3-4 or 4-3 front. He also has the prototypical rush linebacker size that Bill Parcells has engrained in Jeff Ireland. If Clemson DE Andre Branch is on the board he could be the pick.
McNutt may be long gone, but if he’s there Miami should snatch him up. He’s produced his entire career in Big 10 play, runs solid routes and has great hands. ProFootball Weekly’s draft guide predicts he’s a great fit for a West Coast offense. If McNutt is gone Wake Forest’s Chris Givens or Wisconsin’s Nick Toon could be other WR picks.
Dolphins needed safety help before they cut Yeramiah Bell, now it’s a glaring hole. Martin can play FS or SS. If Reshad Jones takes Bell’s spot, Martin can instantly compete with Chris Clemons at FS.
Mosley can add needed depth at RT in case Lydon Murtha doesn’t work out. He’s an athletic former H.S. Tight End, which fits the Philbin mold of becoming “more athletic” on the OL.
Dolphins double-down at WR with the little speedster Broyles. He fits the West Coast mold and produced huge numbers (45 career TD’s) as Landry Jones’ favorite target before his injury late in the season.
This could be wishful thinking, as Lindsay could go in round 4 or 5. Dolphins need to double-down on pass rushers as well as WR. Lindsay has the size and intangibles to fit the bill.
Purely developmental TE. Crazy athletic and could possibly develop into a receiving TE if he makes the roster.
