The Miami Dolphins once again get one of the quarterbacks they’ve had their eyes on in Friday the 13th’s mock draft.

The daily edition of the seven-round mock draft for the Miami Dolphins leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft continues on this Friday the 13th. If this is the first time you’re seeing one from our site, let me inform you that we use the Fanspeak mock draft simulator to conduct a full seven-round mock draft, solely picking for the Miami Dolphins.

You have to take these sort of lightly as some picks may not come off realistic. There are zero trades made throughout the simulator, which is already unrealistic. With that said, crazy things have happened in the draft, and no one ever truly knows how these things will play out. So we like to have fun with it to get an idea of who Miami might be seeking out in each round. Let’s take a look at today’s results.

Round 1 – Josh Rosen – QB

This is the second time in three days that Rosen has fallen to the Dolphins in this spot. Similar to Tuesday and Wednesday’s mock drafts, Lamar Jackson again went to the Jets with #3 pick. It would shock everyone if he went anywhere within the top 10. This time around, Roquan Smith was available too for the Dolphins, but I think the idea of landing Rosen would be too good to pass up.

Round 2 – Malik Jefferson – LB

For those of you that have followed our mock drafts everyday thus far, you’ve probably recognized the trend for rounds 2 and 3, in which Miami takes a linebacker and tight end. It’s widely expected that the Dolphins will look to address these key positions early, and if they can’t get one of the top two linebackers in the first round, then they’ll look to snag one quickly after. Jefferson is the best linebacker remaining on the board in this spot.

Round 3 – Mark Andrews – TE

I wouldn’t be all that surprised if Miami takes a couple of tight ends by the time the draft is complete. It’s a dire need for the Dolphins, and head coach Adam Gase is desperate to add a perennial one to his offense. With Hayden Hurst going just two spots ahead to Denver, Miami plays no games, and takes Andrews in the third.

Round 4 – Fred Warner – LB

The Dolphins double-down at linebacker by taking Warner with their first fourth round selection. Where he lacks in tackling, he makes up for in coverage skills, and could even be used as a hybrid safety. Miami needs help at both positions so Warner could fit in nicely.

Round 4 – Kendrick Norton – DT

The University of Miami has a couple of defensive tackles expected to hear their names called somewhere in the mid-to-late rounds. The Dolphins take the more NFL ready Norton in the fourth to keep the former standout right at home.

Round 6 – Bradley Bozeman – C

Miami did well in free agency to add to their offensive line woes, and as a result, it’s not as pressing a need as we’ve seen in the past. The Dolphins still would like to add some depth, however, and do so by drafting the best center left on the board.

Round 7 – Darrel Williams – RB

The Dolphins probably want to add a running back earlier than the 7th, but they get great value with Williams here. Williams has the size, but lacks the instincts to be a complete runner in the NFL. He would have a great teacher though in Frank Gore to show him the ropes.

Round 7 – Eddy Pineiro – K

Miami needs a kicker after Cody Parkey signed with the Bears this off-season. Pineiro will be a highly coveted one, who is likely to go higher, but if available, the Dolphins don’t want to risk someone else taking him later in the draft or missing out in free agency.
