Miami Dolphins 7 Round Mock Draft


With the NFL Draft just weeks away, the Miami Dolphins will continue to add pieces to what as already been an edited roster.

Below is a complete 7 round mock draft for the Dolphins, barring no trades on draft day.  While the Dolphins may be a target for other teams to trade up with, here is my predicted mock draft without trades.  Let’s get to it!

More from Dolphins Draft

Round 1, Pick 14: DeVante Parker, WR Louisville

Unless one of the top 10 prospects drops to Miami at 14, I see the ‘Fins bolstering their already young and talented receiving corps.  Parker has all the tangibles and intangibles to become Ryan Tannehill‘s number one receiver.  He has speed. great hands, the ability to high point the ball, and is a deep threat. If Parker is still there at 14, and I think he will be, the Dolphins simply can not pass up on this sure of a thing.

Round 2, Pick 15: Eric Rowe, CB Utah

Having taken Parker in the first round, the Dolphins then address their next most glaring need, cornerback.  Rowe is as physical as they come in this draft, listed at 6 foot 1, 205 pounds.  Rowe was also a top performer at the combine in nearly every drill.  He runs a 4.45 forty yard dash, and recorded 19 reps at bench press.  He has the athletic ability to cover anyone, and at Utah he had 3 total interceptions and 261 total tackles as a four year starter.  He could come in and compete with Jamar Taylor and Will Davis immediately, and I think he could win the starting job opposite of Brent Grimes.  Rowe is worthy of a second round pick.

Round 4, Pick 15: John Miller, OG Louisville

The Dolphins, who lost their third round pick acquiring former Saints WR Kenny Stills, add their second player from Louisville by taking Miller in the fourth round.  Miller started 46 games for Louisville, and has experience at both guard positions.  He could help shore up the inside of Miami’s line, and could bump Dallas Thomas off the line as a starter, which would help the Dolphins offensive line overall.  Miller is extremely strong, and is proficient both as a run and pass blocker.  He looks to destroy his opponents, and plays with a tenacity similar to former OG Ritchie Incognito.

  • Round 5, Pick 13: Ben Heeney, ILB Kansas

    Heeney is a tantalizing prospect for the Dolphins for mainly one reason: he is an outstanding tackler. How many times last season did Philip Wheeler miss a tackle?  Heeney is the exact opposite, and swallows up ball carriers with ease. He was a four year starter at Kansas and rarely took breaks during games, proving that he has the stamina and speed to play at the pro level.  Heeney’s main weakness that would allow him to fall to the fifth round is that he is considered small at 6 foot, 230 pounds.  That being said, he has a similar build to former Dolphin great Zach Thomas.  If Miami moves Dion Jordan to OLB like they should, Heeney could find a nice home on the interior with Koa Misi.  He would be an excellent addition with great value if taken in the fifth.

    Round 5, Pick 14 (from Minnesota): Durrell Eskridge, FS Syracuse

    This 6 foot 3, 208 pound ballhawk was best known in college as being a playmaker on defense.  The huge safety has great hands, and considered leaving for the NFL Draft after his breakout season in 2013.  However, Eskridge decided to stay, and became a leader on the Syracuse defense.  Over his career, he totaled 5 interceptions, 4 fumbles (2 forced, 2 recovered) and blocked a kick.  He would deepen what is already a talented group of safeties, led by Reshad Jones and the injury prone Louis Delmas.

    Round 6, Pick 15: Corey Robinson, OT South Carolina

    The Dolphins take another O-linemen here, and get a mammoth of a man in Robinson, who is 6 foot 7 , 324 pounds.  He started 35 games at left tackle for the Gamecocks, and faced some of the best pass rushers in the league in the SEC, like Dante Fowler Jr.  Robinson is a valuable pick because he could easily be moved inside, or could play either tackle positions if Ja’Wuan James or Branden Albert gets injured again.  Robinson could only add depth to what proved to be a shallow Dolphins offensive line last season.
