NFL Draft order 2015: Where are the Dolphins picking now?

New, comments

The Miami Dolphins were eliminated from playoff contention yesterday, which means it's time to start thinking about the 2015 NFL Draft.

Adam Hunger-USA TODAY Sports

The Miami Dolphins are currently 8-7 with a game remaining in the 2014 NFL season. Unfortunately for Miami, their playoff life was ended, not by their own doing on Sunday, where beating the Minnesota Vikings was not enough to overcome a Kansas City Chiefs loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Miami can end the season with a wining record for the first time since 2008 if they can beat the New York Jets next weekend.

The 2015 NFL Draft, which will move from New York to Chicago, will be held April 30 - May 2. Where are the Dolphins currently projected to pick? Right in the middle. Based on final records, then ordered by strength of schedule, the first 20 slots in the Draft will be non-playoff teams. The Dolphins could reach as high as the 20th position or as low as the 13th spot, depending on if they beat the Jets to reach 9-7 or lose to fall to 8-8, as well as what the other 7-8, 8-7, and 9-6 teams do in their final games.
