Miami Dolphins 7 Round Mock Draft
Alright everyone, here is my initial thoughts on how I want our draft to go down.
Round 1 – Luke Kuechly – LB – Boston College
Wait, before you start throwing something at me, I don’t believe Ryan Tannehill is worth a top 10 pick. We are expecting someone that would automatically start and provide an immediate impact; that is the benefit of taking a prospect in the top 10. Enter Luke, arguably the best LB in the draft. Watch game tape on this kid, and you will leave feeling impressed. Played in a big school program, against big time competition. Think Clay Mathews. With Misi providing question marks in his past few years, it’s time to upgrade ILB depth and Luke automatically would come in and start day 1. That’s what you want when you draft a top 10 player.
Round 2 – Amini Silatolu G – Midwestern State
The benefit of drafting Amini is his versatility. He can play either Guard or Right Tackle. Last time I checked, Jerry was not given the position. Enter a hungry prospect willing to go all out and earn the position. Drafting Amini add benefit to our entire team, and upgrading one of our weakest areas.
Round 3 – Dwayne Allen – TE Clemson
Time to upgrade our O; starting with our first ever hybrid TE. Enter Allen. Allen was once considered a first round draft pick, but poor marks at the combine and interviews allows us to draft him in the 3rd round. This might be the biggest steal in the draft…but
Round 3 – LaMichael James RB, Oregon
We make the biggest steal in the draft. If LaMichael is still on the board this would be amazing. LaMichael is a younger version of Reggie Bush and would automatically become our third down Running back and provide an exciting return game. Eventually he could replace Bush or switch positions with him next year.
Round 4 – Ryan Broyles WR, Oklahoma
Ryan would have been a late first round draft pick to early second round pick if he didn’t tear his ACL. But 5 months removed and the kid is already posting a 4.4 40 Time. That right there shows dedication.
Round 5 – Josh Norman CB, Costal Carolina
6’0 CB, runs a slow 4.6 40 time, but you have to like his framework. His shadowing is his best asset, however is liability in zone coverage. We would need to hit the class room hard, but the skill is there.
Round 6 –Lucas Nix, OG Pitt
Just adding depth to our Oline. I like this pick as it make sense. Nix has some issues, that is why he would be available in the 6th, but has shown flashes. With proper development you never know.
Round 7 – Aaron Henry, S Wisconsin
We need help in our secondary. Adding a prospect like Henry would allow him to learn our system and play Special Teams for the year. After a year of grasping our playbook would look to at least move up on the depth chart
Yes, I know we didn’t draft a QB. Truth be told, there isn’t one out there that I like. Why waste a pick on someone that I don’t want on our team. I think if we address a few missing pieces, and add proper development we can explore a QB next year. Let’s face it, this is a rebuilding year, why not add exciting prospect that can develop into our system and become franchise players.
