The Phinsider Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database was off last week, but returns today to update the projected first-round selections for the Dolphins in the 2017 NFL Draft. While the NFL calendar is slowly approaching the Scouting Combine and the start of free agency, mock draft season is in full swing, and the projected picks for the Dolphins are starting to change. We are also seeing more mock drafts start to be published and those that are already out there be updated more often.

The mock draft database expands to 50 included predictions this week.

As we have each of the last four editions, we collect the first-round selection of the Miami Dolphins from around the web in the various mock drafts being posted. We list them all below, as well as collect the picks to see who is the top projected selection for the Dolphins.

This week’s favorite picks are slightly changed from the last version of the database. Alabama tight end O.J. Howard is still on the top, with ten percent of the selection, but rather than being in a tie with Vanderbilt linebacker Zach Cunningham, he is now tied with Miami tight end David Njoku. There are then four players tied with eight percent of the selections, including Cunningham.

This week, we also brought back the database percentage selections by position picked for the Dolphins, which you can find beneath the player graph below. Currently, 30 percent of the mock drafts have the Dolphins selecting a defensive end, while linebacker and tight end are both tight with the second most selections at 20 percent.

It will be interesting to see how, over the next couple of weeks and updated mock drafts, the Dolphins’ trade for Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Julius Thomas impacts the mock drafts, with tight end likely falling down the “needs” list
