Gee, is it easy to tell we're just two weeks away from the NFL Draft?
One week after Mel Kiper put out the fourth edition of his 2013 NFL mock draft, Todd McShay yesterday followed suit with the fifth installment of his 2013 first-round projection. And this week's mock was a special one: the multiple scenario mock draft.
Simply put, McShay accompanies each of the 32 first-round selections with two additional scenarios that could come into play as a result of a trade or altered sense of need. For instance, Big Head Todd has the Chiefs using the No. 1 overall pick on Texas A&M Luke Joeckel. No surprise there--we've seen him in the top slot for several months now.

- Kansas City eschews Joeckel in favor of Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher (the better player of the two, in my opinion)
- Kansas City trades down and either gets a comparable talent in Oklahoma tackle Lane Johnson, or a scheme-diverse defensive tackle like Utah's Star Lotulelei
Makes sense, yes? Excellent. Here are McShay's options for the Miami Dolphins at No. 12:
