The Miami Dolphins mock draft database returns this morning for the fourth edition of the collection of first-round projections from around the web for the team. It has been two weeks since the last update of the database, and the selections for the Dolphins are not nearly as clear cut as they have been previously.

As always, we would like to thank Adam Stites from SB Nation, who put together the interactive pie charts this year.

Our goal is to update this database each week between now and the actual NFL Draft at the end of April, looking to see if the Dolphins' 13th overall pick starts to become a consensus.

Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Player Selections Graph

Two weeks ago, cornerback Vernon Hargreaves led the mock draft database with 23.1 percent of the Dolphins' mock drafts selecting him with the 13th overall selection. That number has fallen to just 15.4 percent of the mocks, while two others have jumped into second place, selected in less than 3 percent fewer mock drafts. Running back Ezekiel Elliott and cornerback Alexander Mackensie both climb to 12.5 percent of the selections, with Alexander having been third in the last datasbase with 11 percent and Elliot fifth with 7 percent.

Defensive end Shaq Lawson, previously the second most common pick for Miami, is now tied for fourth with linebacker Darron Lee. Lawson had been the pick in 13.2 percent of the mocks, but is now down to 11.5 percent of the selections, while Lee climbed has been third last week with 11 percent of the picks.

The rest of the mock drafts have cornerbacks Eli Apple (6.6 percent last week) and William Jackson (listed in the "others" category last week) both showing up in 8.7 percent of the projections. Offensive tackle Jack Conklin is the pick in 7.7 percent of the mock drafts, while defensive end Kevin Dodd is the selection in 4.8 mocks. The "others" group, which typically involves players who only show up in a single mock draft, combine for 6.7 percent of the projections.

(Editor's Note: The interactive pie chart automatically updates throughout the week as more mock drafts are added to the database and/or updated in the database. That could make the percentages change from the listed percentages in the write-up above, which is as of 8am ET on April 14.)
