Last year the Miami Dolphins finally, possibly, most likely found their "franchise" quarterback since Dan Marino retired over a DECADE ago. This year they have been more active in free agency then EVER before, signing 3-4 immediate starters (Wallace, Ellerbe, Wheeler, Keller) and some good depth at other positions. Furthermore, they introduced a new logo and uniforms. The excitement is building and buidling in South Florida and for all across the world for us Dolfans!
Now we are less than 50 hours away until the 2013 NFL draft opens! In my opinion, this is BY FAR the most anticipated, and important, draft in Dolfans history. Everyone has their own opinions... draft this player, draft that player, trade up, trade down, etc etc etc.
One thing for sure is, I expect some shockers in the first round and a lot of trades. I am hoping any trades or shocking picks by the Dolphins are in a good way (aka trade up for Dion Jordan) and not in a bad way (aka trading up for Daniel Thomas).
So with all that being said, I know everyone wants to post their very own Final Mock Draft, but I thought it would be a cool idea to see everyone's mock draft for the Dolphins picks in one thread. I am going to assume we don't complete the Albert trade and with that assumption here is my final mock draft for 2013:
TRADES: Assuming Joeckel and Fischer go 1 nad 2... Dolphins trade their 2014 1st round pick and both 2013 2nd round picks to Oakland for their #3 overall. Then when we are up at our 12th pick another trade... to Minnesota for their 1st (#23 overall) and 2nd round picks (pick up a 2nd we traded to move up). Hey, it's my mock! Don't hate, but rip away lol!!!
RD1 - Dion Jordan, OLB
RD1 - Hayden/Trufant, CB
RD2 - Werner, DE
RD3 - (Trade) to KC for Albert (they finally break lol)
RD3 - Poyer, CB
RD4 - Montee Ball, RB
RD5 - (included in trade to KC for Albert)
RD5 - Ray Ray Armstrong, FS
RD7 - Sturgis, K
RD7 - Best avaialable QB
RD7 - Best available T/G
Ok there it is. I am sure there will be backlash, but if this was to happen, I'd be happy with it! Boom!
LET'S GO MIAMI!!!
