The time has finally come to select for the Dolphins in our community mock draft.
I will submit my pick for the Dolphins at 12th overall sometime this weekend. But that will only count towards one vote for that particular player.
I am asking each of you to submit your vote for who you think the Dolphins will select in the comments section.
Simply give the name of the prospect you’re voting for and feel free to tell us why you think that player should be the pick for Miami.
We will keep the voting open all weekend and I will announce the player with the most votes, thus our pick for the Dolphins, on Monday morning. But first things first, let’s see how our mock has played out so far and unveil picks 9-11 for the first time.
#1 Kansas City Chiefs: Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
#2 Jacksonville Jaguars: Geno Smith, QB, West Virginia
#3 Oakland Raiders: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
#4 Philadelphia Eagles: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon
#5 Detroit Lions: Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan
#6 Cleveland Browns: Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama
#7 Arizona Cardinals: Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma
#8 Buffalo Bills: E.J. Manuel, QB, Florida State
#9 New York Jets
GM: Joe Caporoso
Site: Turn on the Jets
Barkevious Mingo, OLB, LSU
Rationale: The Jets badly need to improve their athleticism and depth at outside linebacker. Mingo provides good value with the 9th overall pick and should be an immediate impact player for them.
#10 Tennessee Titans
GM: Robert Greenlaw
Site: Music City Miracles
Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama
Rationale: This pick fills a position of great need and Chance is also the best player available. Total win win for the Titans as we solidify our line completely. With the offseason acquisition of Levitre, plus the returns of Velasco, Roos, and Stewart, the Titans will return to having one of the premier lines in football. The improved line will also help Locker stay on his feet and create holes for CJ to run through.
#11 San Diego Chargers
GM: Richard Wade
Site: Bolts from the Blue
Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
Rationale: The Chargers have been looking for a strong safety since they cut Rodney Harrison a decade ago. Vaccaro would provide the Chargers with one of (if not) the best safety tandems in the NFL.
So there you have it, the Miami Dolphins are now on the clock!
Will Jeff Ireland appease the fan base by bringing in a red-zone target like Tyler Eifert or a homerun threat in Tavon Austin?
How about addressing the offensive line with Jonathan Cooper or D.J. Fluker? Maybe, he’ll look to the defense and attempt to solidify the pass rush with Ziggy Ansah or Bjoern Warner?
Cornerback may be the Dolphins’ most pressing need by draft time if this Branden Albert trade transpires. Xavier Rhodes, Desmond Trufant, and the fast-rising D.J. Hayden would be tempting solutions.
We can only speculate what Ireland will do come Thursday night, but the choice is yours in this mock! Simply submit the name of the player you think the Dolphins will select and we’ll get the voting started.
