It has been a little over two months since the Dolphins Mock Draft Database was updated, moving from the first edition to today’s second edition. We move from 20 mock drafts in the database to 68 mock drafts today. We are just under a week away from the actual 2018 NFL Draft, so we may have a better idea of exactly where the Miami Dolphins will be looking when they make their selection in the first round.

For the database, we essentially collect the mock drafts from around the web, looking at the Dolphins’ first-round pick. We record that selection in the database, even if the mock traded the pick for Miami so they were not picking in the 11th position.

Below you will find a table listing all of the 68 mock drafts used in the database. Then we will break it down by the players being selected and the positions being selected.
