Fins 7-Round Live Mock Draft Results


Over at MockingTheDraft, I began yet another 7-Round live mock draft between myself and 31 other SBnation members representing their respective teams. I represented our beloved Miami Dolphins. Here are the results:

#12- Earl Thomas (FS, Texas)

With Berry, Haden, Spiller, and Dan Williams all off the board before my pick, I was left with two options, trade back in the round to add a few extra picks and take and rush linebacker, or take the best player available that fills one of our 4 greatest needs (NT, OLB, FS, WR). I could not find a trade partner so I went with the latter. Earl Thomas not only fills one of our biggest needs, but he was also the best player left on my board. He should be able to start immediately in our secondary and be a huge (much needed) playmaker for the Fins for years to come.




#41 (from Buffalo)- Terrence Cody (NT, Alabama)

I decided to move up a few picks in the 2nd round to secure a NT (I gave up one of our three 6th round picks). Terrence Cody is a beast of a man. He'll clog up the middle of Miami's D and give Dansby, Wake and the rest of our LB's space to make plays. Much needed.

 

#73 - Thaddeus Gibson (OLB, Ohio State)

Best 3-4 OLB available. More of a need pick than anything else, but he does have nice upside and could surprise.

 

#98 (From Titans) - Jimmy Graham (TE, Miami)

The next Antonio Gates? I happen to think so. He'll be Henne's favorite go-to target for a long time.

 

#163- Clifton Geathers (DE, South Carolina)

Not necessarily a need pick, but I love this kids upside. Besides, It's not as if Phillip Merling and Kendall Langford can't be upgraded if better talent comes along.

 

#169-  Dorin Dickerson (WR, Pittsburgh)

A 6'1, 226 Ibs TE with 4.40 speed? That sounds more like a stud WR to me! A massive steal in the 6th round. May need a year to transition and develope but has all the physical tools to become a true #1 wide-out. He's very athletic (40 inch vertical) and wil cause tons of match up problems for defenses.

 

#203- Dexter Davis (OLB, Arizona State)

A 6'2 250 Ibs DE with 4.56 speed. He's got 3-4 rush linebacker written all over him.
