The results are in for spots six through 10, meaning we know have the top ten of our Phinsider Dolphins Draft Board completed:
1. Eric Berry, S, Tennessee
2. Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St.
3. Ndamukong Suh, DT, Nebraska
4. Gerald McCoy, DT, Oklahoma
5. Earl Thomas, S, Texas
6. C.J. Spiller, RB, Clemson - 1,000
7. Dan Williams, DT, Tennessee - 984
8. Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas - 910
9. Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama - 763
10. Brandon Graham, OLB, Michigan - 731
As you can see from the points from the last round of voting, numbers 6 through 8 were close before a little dip. But then spots 9 and 10 were pretty close.
Voting for the next five spots on our big board begins now. The poll is below. You'll notice that replacing the latest five who are now on our board are five new prospects who weren't included in the last vote.
A quick explanation on the idea behind this poll (incase you missed it the first time) is below as well.
Rank the top five available players. Take talent, value, need, and character into account if that is what you would do if you were running the Miami Dolphins. If you don't think "character" should be a factor, then simply don't take each player's character into account when creating your own big board. It's that simple.
Players will receive 5 points for every first place vote, 4 for every second place, and so on. They will receive 0 points if they are unranked. Total points from all ballots will be added, and the 5 players with the most votes will be taken out of the pool of available players and put up on the big board. We'll then move on with ranking players 6-10 in a couple of days.
Some important notes:
This is not a mock draft. So don't treat it as one.
It does not matter if you think the player will be gone by pick twelve. This does not take into account what other teams do.
Do not think about what you think the Dolphins will do. This is our Dolphins Big Board - not Jeff Ireland's.
Got it? Good.
