2013 NFL Draft: Phinsider Official "I Called It" Predictions Thread

Want an "official record" of your pre-draft predictions that you can refer to if you turn out to be correct (and never refer to again if you turn out to be incorrect)? Well, here you go.

The draft starts in a couple of hours, and a live thread will be put up for Phinsiders to comment on and critique every pick of the first round of the draft. Since that thread has a habit of becoming filled with a ton of comments, I thought it'd be a good idea to create this separate thread for everyone to make a couple of pre-draft predictions about the Dolphins' first round pick. That way, if you want to convince someone you correctly predicted a Tavon Austin, D.J. Hayden, Luke Joeckel/Lane Johnson, Tyler Eifert, Kenny Vaccaro, etc. pick, they won't have to scroll down 500+ comments in the official draft thread to find your prediction. Instead, you can send them a link to this page as "proof."

So in the poll below, vote for which 1 player you predict the Dolphins will take in the first round. I included the top 32 non-QB prospects according to most mock drafts, so I'm inclined to believe the Dolphins' eventual first round pick is listed below (even if we trade down). The poll will close at 8:15 p.m. EST to prevent any "predictions" that are submitted after we make our pick, and we'll see how well we do as a Dolphins fan community at deciphering the signals and seeing through the smokescreens Jeff Ireland has put up.

After voting in the poll, list your Top 3 Predictions in the comments below. That allows you a little more freedom to take into account possibilities like the Dolphins trading up, trading down, or staying at 12 - though you don't necessarily have to make a prediction for each of those scenarios if you don't think we're likely to move up or down.
