As we'll do every Friday between now and the draft, it's time to take a quick look at some of the most respected mock drafts on the internet and see who they have the Dolphins taking in the first three rounds of April's draft.
But note that these mocks are likely going to change a million times between now and the draft - with the scouting combine coming up in just over a week.
The mocks are after the jump. Enjoy.

I guess the release (then non-release, but eventual release) of Joey Porter has had an effect. It seems as though more and more think the Dolphins will address their need at OLB with either their first or second pick. Makes sense. But I don't see the Dolphins doing something like "Walter Football" believes and taking two linebackers in the first two rounds. I think there are too many other pressing needs right now. And despite Bill Parcells' well-known love of linebackers, I just don't see back-to-back linebackers in rounds one and two as a real possibility.
I will admit that the mock by "NFL Draft 101" - Spiller then Sapp - is intriguing.
