7-Round Dolphins Mock

This is my stab at what I THINK is going to happen. Enjoy draft day!

 

Round 1 (#12) – TE Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame (6-6, 250)

GM Jeff Ireland saw TE Jason Witten make four Pro Bowls in his final four years as a national scout for the Dallas Cowboys (2004-2007). I see Eifert being somewhere between Jeremy Shockey and Greg Olsen as a 1st-Round pick. His ceiling is matchup-changing; his downside is basically zero.

Round 2 (#43) – DE Alex Okafor, Texas (6-4, 264)

Okafor has gingerly fallen from a mid-late 1st round into the early-mid 2nd area. He has the size, length, and collegiate production to be a perfect compliment opposite Cameron Wake at DE.

Round 2 (#54) – (Traded for OT Branden Albert)

There are upsides to trading for Branden Albert because one could argue that he has been better than Jake Long over the last two seasons. My concern with Albert is the long-term salary cap ramifications. I’d prefer to sign Eric Winston solidify the RT position or use a 2nd round pick on an athletic OT that will make a fraction of thecost with higher long-term upside.

Round 3 (#77) – G Brian Schwenke, California (6-3, 314)

This is my guy in the 3rd Round in Mike Sherman’s ZBS. He will replace Richie Incognito after the 2013 season.

Round 3 (#82) – S Earl Wolff, North Carolina St (5-11, 209)

Under-the-radar center fielder who will challenge Chris Clemons at the FS position.

Round 4 (#111) – DE Quanterus Smith, Western Kentucky (6-5, 250)

Ireland typically takes bigger risks in the 4th round (see Lamar Miller and Clyde Gates) and Smith would be an appropriate one here at #111. He likely would have been a Top-50 selection if not for a Torn ACL midway through the 2012 season. He might start the season on PUP, but is worth the wait.

Round 5 (#146) – CB Terry Hawthrone, Illinois (6-0, 190)

Hawthorne’s size, speed, and upside should catch Ireland’s attention in the 5th round. Raw big-school DB’s have paid off for Ireland in the 5th round in previous drafts (Reshad Jones, Chris Clemons, and Nolan Carroll).

Round 7 (#217) – RB Cierre Wood, Notre Dame (6-0 – 215)

Has the power to push Daniel Thomas as the #2 RB behind Lamar Miller.

Round 7 (#224) – K Zach Ramirez, Portland St (6-0, 203)

Cheap alternative to push incumbent K Dan Carpenter. NFL.com’s Gil Brandt’s labeled him as “possibly this year’s Greg Zuerlein”. He was 17-for-18 on FG attempts this season.

Round 7 (#250) – DT Lawrence Okoye, Nowhere (6-6, 304)

This brit has never played a down of NFL football, but at least has the measurables to play (4.78/40 at 6’6 – 304). Okoye would be a perfect practice squad candidate if he shows any ability what-so-ever to play the sport.

    I like it though I would rather have Jamar Taylor than Okafor.
