Miami Dolphins: Mock Drafts Around the 'Net, 3/31 Edition

New, comments

It's been two weeks since we listed checked in on some of the more respectable draft analysts and who they are predicting the Miami Dolphins will select in their mock drafts. Since we last updated this, the Dolphins have been very busy - attending Pro Day workouts and holding their own private workouts with some of the top talents in the 2011 NFL Draft.

So is Mark Ingram still holding steady as the popular pick in these mocks? Let's find out.

The list of over 20 mock drafts is below...

For the second consecutive time, we're seeing the number of mocks sending Mark Ingram to Miami decrease. Is this because these analysts and draftniks just want to be different? Maybe. Or maybe they are realizing that the Dolphins probably don't see great value in drafting a running back this high.

Like I've said for a couple weeks now, if the Dolphins can't trade down from 15 - and they will try very hard to do so - Ingram probably makes the most sense for this team.

It's interesting to note, though, that we are seeing quarterbacks getting "mocked" to the Dolphins a little bit more often. Nearly 20% of the mocks send a QB to Miami. They just can't agree on which one it will be.

We're just four weeks from the first round - when we can finally put the speculation to bed. Time can't go quick enough.
