Dolphin Draft: Two Round Mock

1. Indianapolis – Andrew Luck, Quarterback, Stanford

2. Washington – Robert Griffin III, Quarterback, Baylor

3. Minnesota – Matt Kalil, Offensive Tackle, Southern California

Minnesota is looking to profit by creating doubt as to who their pick is but if no team bites, they will pick up their left tackle for the next decade.

4. Cleveland – Trent Richardson, Running Back, Alabama

Richardson will provide a spark to one of the worst offenses in the NFL.  Justin Blackmon will provide little impact with Colt McCoy as his quarterback.

5. Tampa Bay – Morris Claiborne, Cornerback, LSU

At this point, Claiborne is too much of a talent to pass up.

6. St. Louis – Justin Blackmon, Wide Receiver, Oklahoma State

The Rams provide Sam Bradford with another weapon in a make or break year for him.

7. Jacksonville – Melvin Ingram, DE/OLB, South Carolina

Ingram fills a glaring Jaguar need and will excite fans with his athleticism.

8. Miami – Fletcher Cox, Defensive End, Mississippi State

I believe the Dolphins will trade down.  If they remain here, Ireland prefers to draft “trench” players in the first round.  Cox is as fast as Coples, has more quickness, and is tenacious.  Why couldn’t he be an end?  I had previously written about him in the post, Who is Fletcher Cox?

9. Carolina – Quinton Coples, Defensive End, North Carolina

The Panthers go with the best talent available but they better know how to keep him motivated.

10. Buffalo – Michael Floyd, Wide Receiver, Notre Dame

The Bills have a need at receiver and Floyd is big and fast.

11. Kansas City – Luke Kuechly, Inside Linebacker, Boston College

The Chiefs can opt for a guard here (DeCastro) but go with the scarcer talent.

12. Seattle – Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback, Texas A&M

Seattle is looking for a franchise quarterback to pair with their short-term solution, Matt Flynn.

13. Arizona – Riley Reiff, Offensive Tackle, Iowa

The Cards wanted Floyd but are happy with help for their needy line.

14. Dallas – Mark Barron, Safety, Alabama

Jerry Jones finds a flashy pick with substance.

15. Philadelphia – Michael Brockers, Defensive Tackle, Louisiana State

The Eagles miss on Cox but still get a solid SEC product.

16. New York Jets – Courtney Upshaw, Outside Linebacker, Alabama

A shiny new toy for Rex.

17. Cincinnati – Dre Kirkpatrick, Cornerback, Alabama

Tide players go back-to-back as the Bengals pass on Gilmore and Jenkins.

18. San Diego – Jonathan Martin, Offensive Tackle, Stanford

The Chargers need some bookend help and Martin is the best available.

19. Chicago – Mike Adams, Offensive Tackle, Ohio State

The Bears would prefer Martin but still get a massive left tackle, with potential.

20. Tennessee – Stephon Gilmore, Cornerback, South Carolina

The Titans can draft a safety later.

21. Cincinnati – David DeCastro, Guard, Stanford

The Bengals get the best guard in the draft.

22. Cleveland – Kendall Wright, Wide Receiver, Baylor

Wright is the second part of the Browns’ masterpiece.

23. Detroit – Janoris Jenkins, Cornerback, North Alabama

There are maturity and small-school question marks with Jenkins but he could prove to be a steal.

24. Pittsburgh – Cordy Glenn, Guard, Georgia

While the Steelers also need a guard, they hope Glenn can be their right tackle.

25. Denver – Dontari Poe, Defensive Tackle, Memphis

The Broncos take a gamble on player that dominated the combine but did not dominate Conference USA.

26. Houston – Stephen Hill, Wide Receiver, Georgia Tech

Hill has the size and speed to be a steal but if he cannot be further polished, he will be a bust.

27. New England – Andre Branch, Defensive End, Clemson

The Pats will have their choice between Branch, Whitney Mercilus, and Chandler Jones.

28. Green Bay – Devon Still, Defensive Tackle, Penn State

The Packers have multiple needs on defense and start with an anchor.

29. Baltimore – Chandler Jones, Defensive End, Syracuse

The brother of UFC light-heavyweight champion Jon “Bones” Jones is rising on draft boards.

30. San Francisco – Amini Silatolu, Guard, Midwestern State

Rumors are that the 49ers want Silatolu.

31. New England -  Whitney Mercilus, Defensive End, Illinois

Mercilus has the physical tools to run around tackles.

32. New York Giants – Lamar Miller, Running Back, Miami

The Giants make a splash with an explosive running back.

SECOND ROUND

33. St.Louis – Bobby Massie, Offensive Tackle, Mississippi

Bradford gets more help.

34. Indianapolis – Coby Fleener, Tight End, Stanford

Luck gets a familiar tight end to ease his transition into the NFL.

35. Minnesota – Jerel Worthy, Defensive Tackle, Michigan State

The Vikings add to their d-line this time.

36. Tampa Bay – Doug Martin, Running Back, Boise State

The Bucs missed on Richardson but draft, arguably, the second best tailback in the draft.

37. Cleveland – Brandon Weeden, Quarterback, Oklahoma State

Richardson, Wright, and Weeden would be perfection.  The Dolphins need to move in front of this spot if they care for Weeden, unless, of course, the Browns take Tannehill.

38. Jacksonville – Rueben Randle, Wide Receiver, Louisiana State

Randle has everything minus the blazing speed.

39. St.Louis – Kevin Zeitler, Guard, Wisconsin

So far, so good for the Rams.  Bradford better deliver.

40. Carolina – Josh Robinson, Cornerback, Central Florida

Jeffery is a thought but CB is a greater need.

41. Buffalo – Zebrie Sanders, Offensive Tackle, Florida State

Buffalo has their choice of second tier tackles and hope they guessed correctly.

42. Miami – Alshon Jeffery, Wide Receiver, South Carolina

I would prefer Weeden in the second round.
