Miami Dolphins: Mock Drafts Around the 'Net, 3/17 Edition

New, comments

The NFL Draft hype machine is kicking into high gear now as we inch ever so close to the annual event. That means more and more draft analysts are preparing and updating their mock drafts. And though we all know these mocks are generally not very accurate when it comes to the Dolphins (historically speaking), we just can't help but talk about them.

After all, what else do we have to talk about right now?

So let's get to it. The list of over 20 mock drafts is below...

The only surprise here might be that the percentage of mock drafts that have Ingram going to the Dolphins has actually gone down a bit over last week. As I said last week, if the Dolphins can't trade down, Ingram probably makes the most sense at 15.

I can't say I'm thrilled with the idea of Jake Locker ending up in Miami. There are a few guys (not just referring to quarterbacks, either) that I'd prefer the Dolphins to draft ahead of the Washington quarterback. I just don't see much upside in Locker - and his erratic accuracy seriously concerns me.

For the record, I plan on doing my first mock draft on 2011 next week. And I have a feeling some will be surprised at who I might have the Dolphins selecting at 15.
