We are now 17 days away from the 2021 NFL Draft, and the excitement continues to grow as the Miami Dolphins enter the draft with five of the top 81 selections. Miami has two first-round picks, pick 6 and pick 18, and two second-round picks, pick 36 and pick 50. Those four picks paired with pick 81 give the Dolphins a unique opportunity to build their roster the right way through the draft.
Miami has been rebuilding, but the foundation is set, and the house is going up. If they can hit on these five picks, Miami will be able to put the roof on and become perennial contenders in the AFC.
The Dolphins were not big spenders in free agency, though they did find some great value deals. They also made a big trade to acquire Benardrick McKinney, which hasn’t been talked about enough this offseason.
Wide receiver Will Fuller signed a 1-year, $10 million contract, one of the best contracts in free agency and Miami’s most significant move. Starting quarterback Tua Tagovailoa should be happy with the addition of his new speedster at receiver. Fuller will be an excellent piece for Miami in 2021, and signing him was one of the best case scenarios in free agency.
However, it is time for the 2021 NFL Draft, and what would be the best-case scenario for the Dolphins? There are a few players they should avoid at pick 6 and a few that they should target, but what about the rest of the draft?
Here is a best-case scenario seven-round mock draft for the Dolphins in the 2021 NFL Draft.
