The Miami Dolphins will find out who is available and make their selection in nine days and a couple of hours and counting. Who the Dolphins select seems to change on a daily basis as those who produce mock drafts get wind of a new rumor and scurry off to change a pick that then changes the next pick and so on. Eventually they reach number 13 and voila’ another change is made.
So who is being mocked to the Dolphins? Here is a look at some of the mock drafts out there and who the Dolphins are mocked to select. You can click on the links to see the full draft and decide for yourself if the decision was a good one.
CBSSports.com – LB – Darron Lee – Ohio State. This is the first I have seen Lee mocked to the Dolphins and it was surprising given the fact that corner backs Eli Apple, William Jackson, and Kendall Fuller were still on the board. They have Mackensie Alexander slipping into round two. The mock draft was updated on April 18th. They provide a full 7 round mock for all teams.
WalterFootball.com – CB – Eli Apple – Ohio State. The Dolphins are have a big need for corner and Apple is appearing on more than a few mock drafts.
WalterFootball.com (Charlie’s mock) – OT – Jack Conklin – MSU. The Dolphins do have a need on offensive line and for the last month Conklin has been my top choice for the Dolphins. Able to play guard until Brandon Albert is gone, Conklin would make the offensive line much better and eventually move outside to play left tackle.
NFL.com (multiple) – The NFL.com site has several, eight to be exact, analysts submitting mock drafts. Here are the 8 players mocked to the Dolphins.
"Ezekiel Elliot, Shaq Lawson, Ezekiel Elliot, Eli Apple, Ezekiel Elliot, Eli Apple, Kevin Dodd, Williams Jackson"
NFLDraftsite.com – CB – Eli Apple – Ohio State. Apple is becoming a hot player to land at 13. Some believe he will fall into the mid-20 range while others appear to show him at in the early teens.
DraftTek.com – CB – Mackensie Alexander – Clemson. As stated above, some believe that Alexander is a late first, early 2nd round player but teams like the Dolphins who have big needs at the corner position could take him much earlier than his current projections.
Newsday.com – DE – Shaq Lawson – Clemson. I’m not sure anyone would be mad if Lawson was the selection at 13. He has a lot of potential and upside and the Dolphins need to replace Olivier Vernon and sooner rather than later Cameron Wake. This mock was updated on April 14th. Mackensie Alexander, Williams Jackson, and Eli Apple were all still on the board at 13.
DraftGeeks.com – CB – William Jackson, III – Houston. Jackson is starting to climb some draft boards but will he climb Miami’s?
BleacherReport – CB – Vernon Hargreaves, III – Florida. Updated on the 18th of April, this mock draft fully takes a look at what could happen after the Rams trade to number one.
Forbes.com – CB – Eli Apple. Even the money magazine is getting into the mock draft business.
ProFootballFocus.com – CB – Mackensie Alexander. This mock is actually done by Chris Collinsworth. In Collinsworth’s first mock draft of the season he predicted the Rams trade with the Titans.
