2013 NFL Mock Draft from Dan Kadar

Ezra Shaw

SB Nation's Dan Kadar, the lead man over at Mocking the Draft, has published a mock draft now that 20 of the 32 teams' draft positions are set. Who did he give to the Miami Dolphins? Keep reading to find out.

The 2013 NFL Draft is four months away, but the draft order is mostly set, now that the 2012 regular season is complete. This morning, we took a look at the draft order, giving the Miami Dolphins the twelfth pick in April. SB Nation's Dan Kadar, managing editor of Mocking the Draft, has taken it one step further and posted a 2013 NFL mock draft.

We actually talked to Kadar a couple of weeks ago about theDolphins' draft needs and plans, now it's time to see where he thinks the Dolphins will look with their first round pick in 2013.

With the 12th overall pick in the 2013 Draft, the Miami Dolphins select:

Keenan Allen, WR, California

Because they're set to have a lot of money under the salary cap, lets assume Miami can re-sign left tackle Jake Long. Miami needs a No. 1 option at wide receiver for quarterback Ryan Tannehill. Allen is unquestionably the top wide receiver in the draft this year and is fairly similar in style to Brandon Marshall. A pass rusher like LSU's Barkevious Mingo or Oregon's Dion Jordan would also get a long look here.

I don't think any one will argue with Kadar on this pick. Landing Allen would be huge for the Dolphins. I also agree with him that looking at Mingo or Jordan would also make sense at the 12th spot. As I said when I spoke with Kadar, my personal plan is pass rusher in the first round, then double up on wide receivers in the second round, with the extra draft pick coming from the trade sending Vontae Davis to the Indianapolis Colts.

But, if you picked up Allen in the first round, is there any reason to complain?
