Post Combine Miami Dolphins Mock Draft
The combine is over. Free agency is less than a week away. The time to franchise a player has came and gone. So, what does all that mean…nothing, but here is the post combine Dolphins Mock Draft
1st round – 11th overall – Tremaine Edmunds LB – Virginia Tech
- Previous selection – Tremaine Edmunds LB
- Nothing has changed in my mind. In terms of best player available that fills a need. Yes, Baker Mayfield talks have heated up, but I doubt he makes out of the top 10. Based on what we saw at the combine Josh Allen looks like a top 10 pick, which makes Edmunds sliding out of the top 10 even more logical.
- Edmunds is only 19. His potential is uncapped. He looks like a combination of Anthony Barr meets Bryan Cox. The Dolphins can pair him with 22 year old Raekwon and you don’t have to worry about your Linebacking core for the next 4 years. If Edmunds is off the board, then my back up would be Derwin James.
2nd round – 42nd overall – Billy Price – C – Ohio State
Price was a top 20 pick, no doubt about that. Unfortunately, he tore his pectoral muscle while doing the bench press, which will cause him to drop to the second round if not further. The downside, is that you don’t know what type of shape Price will be in, but the Cowboys and Jags took two Linebackers with worse concerns (Jaylen Smith and Myles Jack) both ironically in 2
. The Dolphins get Price and could potentially let Pouncey walk clearing over 8 million in cap space.
3rd round – 70th overall – Mark Andrews – TE – Oklahoma
- Previous pick – Ogbannia Okoronkwo DE – Oklahoma
- With the trade of Robert Quinn, it doesn’t make sense for the Dolphins to add another DE, it would be foolish. The Dolphins are committed to Ryan Tannehill and need to add some new weapons since Jarvis Landry is most likely out the door. Andrews is the best pass catching Tight End in this year’s draft class. He can’t block or was rarely asked to block last year at Oklahoma, but neither could Julius.
4th round – 104th overall – Kyle Lauletta QB – Richmond
- Previous Pick – Kyle Lauletta QB – Richmond
- Many fans wanted the Dolphins to draft a quarterback in the first three rounds, but the way the board unfolded, they were able to target a player that really can develop in Gase system. Watch the senior bowl and you will notice that Lauletta earned MVP honors with throwing for 3 TDs and over 190 yards. He possesses all the raw physical attributes and just needs time to develop. Great project player that will benefit from being red-shirted and just learn and provides an insurance policy with some added excitement to the fan base.
6th round – 195st overall – Josh Adams RB – Notre Dame
- Previous pick – Royce Freeman RB – Oregon
- Freeman killed it during the combine and made his way to the top 3 rounds. He won’t be available in the 6th, but I still see the Dolphins drafting a Running back here. I like Adams, he needs to bulk up a little more, but he is he one cut combinational player that would go nicely with Drake.
round – 199
overall – Braxton Berrios – WR – Miami
- Previous pick – Braxton Berrios – WR – Miami
- I think Berrios is a skillful player. He plays with heart and he loves the game. If he was taller, he would automatically be considered a legit 2nd or 3rd round selection. The fact that he is small but fast would basically allow him to slip to the 7th round, where Miami can select another home-grown talent.
7th round – 203rd overall – Tre Flowers – S – Okalhoma STate
- Previous pick – Joe Ostman LB – Central Michigan
- I like this kid – he’s going to give replace Walt Atiken on special teams and that is what you want from your 7th
