kmb8488's Dolphins-Oriented Big Board 1.0

It can be tiring work whittling down an entire draft class into a top 20 best-of list, and since the members of this site are primarily interested in the prospects who could be in Miami next season, I've run any and all 2012 NFL Draft entrants through a Dolphins-only filter. The result? Your first Dolphins-only Big Board of the pre-draft season.

Rank

Player

Position

Height/ Weight

School

1

Melvin Ingram

DE

6'1 7/8", 276

South Carolina

A tweener pass-rusher who would fit in well with the Dolphins' 4-3 hybrid scheme

2

Justin Blackmon

WR

6'1", 215

Oklahoma St.

Blackmon would be the perfect welcoming gift for Peyton Manning or Matt Flynn

3

Quinton Coples

DE

6'5 3/4", 285

North Carolina

A powerful, run-snuffing end with better-than-advertised pass-rushing skills

4

Riley Reiff

OT

6'6", 300

Iowa

The best tackle in this draft class; would form an impenetrable bookend with Jake Long

5

Courtney Upshaw

OLB/DE

6'2", 270

Alabama

Projects as an outside linebacker, but has the build to play end in certain 4-3 schemes. Does everything well.

6

Ryan Tannehill

QB

6'3 3/4", 225

Texas A&M

Tremendous-yet-raw QB prospect with good arm strength and considerable upside

7

Michael Floyd

WR

6'3", 225

Notre Dame

Big-time wideout with size, excellent hands and adequate speed

8

Jonathan Martin

OT

6'6", 305

Stanford

The premier road-grading tackle in this class. Sub-par footwork might keep him on the right side at the next level

9

Mark Barron

S

6'1", 220

Alabama

Instinctual, do-everything safety who would immediately bolster the Dolphins' secondary

10

Kendall Wright

WR

5'10", 195

Baylor

Explosive playmaker who could be a No.1 wideout or vertical threat in the NFL

11

David DeCastro

G

6'4", 315

Stanford

As good as it gets for a college guard. Does everything well and should be a starter right off the bat

12

Brock Osweiler

QB

6'8", 240

Arizona State

Strong-armed, deceptively athletic signal caller. Intangibles remain in question, but the physical tools are all there

13

Dwayne Allen

TE

6'4", 255

Clemson

Antonio Gates-type tight end with exceptional speed and hands. Really improved as a blocker in 2011

14

Chandler Jones

DE

6'5", 250

Syracuse

Undersized end with the speed and strength to make a difference in the 4-3

15

Coby Fleener

TE

6'6", 250

Stanford

Massive tight end prospect with good speed and even better hands

16

Cordy Glenn

G/T

6'5", 340

Georgia

Huge, versatile lineman who could play either tackle or guard at the next level

17

Harrison Smith

S

6'1", 215

Notre Dame

A riser at safety. Fast enough to play the point and strong enough to smack the run. Will remind you of former Dolphins great Brock Marion

18

Zebrie Sanders

OT

6'5" 310

Florida State

A sleeper tackle prospect who projects well on the right side in the NFL. Solid run blocker with blooming pass-protection skills

19

Zach Brown

OLB

6'1", 225

North Carolina

Speedster linebacker prospect who will likely play the will position in the NFL

20

Kevin Zeitler

G

6'4", 315

Wisconsin

A bulldozing interior lineman with intelligence, adequate athleticism and excellent strength
