This is my first Fan Post so thank you for reading.
I volunteered to represent the Dolphins in our Interactive Mock Draft at Mile High Report where I've been a member beginning my 3rd year. I figured who better to ask for assistance than the fans themselves. Let's get to the nitty gritty after the jump.
I know a lot of mocks have your team taking Mark Ingram with the 15th pick but I'm torn between RB, QB (not too excited about Cam but I'll wait for your opinions on that one...but at this point wouldn't rule out Mallett), speed WR, interior OL or possibly an edge rusher to team up with Cameron Wake.
I think Mark Ingram is pretty close to a can't miss but there are some good RBs that could be taken later since you have no #2 at this point in time. Depending on how the draft falls and with no #2 I wouldn't rule out the QB position. I don't think Gabbert will fall that far and I'm wondering if Mallett is or isn't a reach at 15 after watching him at the Combine.
With Brandon Marshall on one side I can't help but get excited if Julio Jones were to slip a little because of the fracture in his foot. My gut feeling though is he won't be there based on his Combine performance especially considering he competed with the fracture. Pretty amazing.
I really don't think an interior lineman is the way to go in the 1st round. There are 3 or 4 tackles I think will be picked in the first but I can't see using #15 on a G or C.
I've also thought about some of the DE/OLB that could play in your 3-4. With the plethora of talent who knows how they'll fall...depending on how many QBs go, there could be some real talent at the position.
Based on the fact we started on Sunday evening and are currently at pick #5 I expect to be making your pick on Thursday or Friday. We've been given 12 hours per pick but normally it doesn't take that long. We will be going until the entire draft is complete or the real thing is kicked off on April 28th.
Rather than continue to ramble I'd really appreciate it if I can get some help from you good folks here. Thank you VERY much for your time.
Wish me luck and thanks again!!
