Dolphin Mock Drafts Around the 'Net, 3/19 Edition

It's time again to glance over the 40+ mock drafts we've been following to see how things have changed this week.

The biggest trend right now seems to be the falling stock of Dez Bryant. His off-the-field issues seem to have most experts believing Bryant will indeed be on the board when the Dolphins are on the clock with the 12th pick. And ESPN's Todd McShay has called Bryant the most talented receiver to enter the draft since Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson. That's some lofty praise. But is the perceived baggage too much for a team like the Dolphins to take on?

Let's see what some of the internet's best mock drafts are saying today.

Rolando McClain: 2% (-)

All aboard the Dan Williams bandwagon, huh? I get it - he's the "safe" bet when trying to predict what Miami will do in the draft. The other safe bet is outside linebacker. But nobody has an idea as to which one the Dolphins would target. Jason Pierre-Paul and Sergio Kindle appear to be the leaders as of now. But many scouts love Brandon Graham - and the Dolphins might, too, if they can look past his height.

I also noticed that there's some momentum building for Brandon LaFell as a possible second round pick by the Dolphins. No other player came close in the 44 mocks above to matching the number of times LaFell was listed as the team's second round selection. Is it just speculation or is there something more to this? I have no idea.

And that's the bottom line to all this - nobody really has any idea right now. But between now and April's draft, I think we'll get a little bit better of a feeling as to what the Dolphins might do when they get put on the clock.
