Dolphin Mock Drafts Around the 'Net

Barring any breaking news, here's what I plan to do every Friday from now until the NFL Draft - which begins on Thursday, April 22 at 7:30 eastern. I plan to do a roundup of some of the top NFL mock drafts on the net and post them here for quick viewing. And if you want to read more about that particular mock, you can simply click the name of the mock, which will be linked to the source.

Why am I doing this? Two reasons. One - I find it interesting seeing various predictions all in one place. And two - it seemed like this was a popular feature last offseason leading up to the 2009 draft.

The list of mocks is after the jump. And as we get closer, the list will get longer and (hopefully) we'll have some mock drafts that go into the 2nd and 3rd rounds. I know they are never really accurate. But it makes for some good discussion/debate.

That's it for now. I hope to have all of the slots above filled with the more respected mock drafts as we inch closer. There are a million mock draft sites out there but I try to focus on those that have been around longer and have a somewhat reliable history.

As you can see, the biggest areas of need are highlighted here as expected. Most have the Dolphins addressing any combination of the following: inside linebacker, outside linebacker, nose tackle, and wide receiver.

It's not a shock. And I expect to see more and more of this as we near draft day.
