We're just a few picks away from the seventh and final round. And rather than post a new thread for each of the Miami Dolphins remaining two draft picks, I'm going to simply update this post with the info.

First, a recap of what the Dolphins have done so far:

1st Round, 15th overall pick: Mike Pouncey, C, Florida
2nd Round, 62nd overall pick: Daniel Thomas, RB, Kansas State
4th Round, 111th overall pick: Edmond Gates, WR, Abilene Christian
6th Round, 174th overall pick: Charles Clay, TE/H-Back, Tulsa

**7th Round, 231st overall pick: Frank Kearse, DT, Alabama A&M**

Kearse measures in at 6'4, 315 pounds and looks like a potential nose tackle project. Tony Pauline writes about the kid, "Kearse is a strong, wide-bodied defender who does a better job occupying blockers rather than making plays up the field. He could develop into a zero-technique/nose tackle prospect at the next level as he physically matures, adds bulk to his frame, and gets stronger."

**7th Round, 235th overall pick: James Wilson, CB, Montana**

Wilson measures in at 5'11, 193 pounds and was timed at 4.52 and 4.49 at his Pro Day. He also turned in 19 reps at 225 on the bench and a 35 inch vertical. Many expected him to go undrafted because of his past, which includes being locked away in prison for two years for murder before being acquitted. But he's a kid with day two talent who the Dolphins get in round seven.

You can read about his story right here, courtesy of the NY Times.

And with that, the 2011 Miami Dolphins draft class is complete.

Thoughts?
