Dolphins Top-20 board for Day 2

Am I excited? Try estatic. The Dolphins got the #1 player on my board in Dion Jordan. A DL of Wake, Soliai, Starks, Jordan with Odrick, Vernon, Martin in reserve? Wow.

This is my Top-20 board heading into Day 2. It’s possible a handful of these players (Schwenke, Thomas, Webb, Goodwin) could be had in the 3rd Round too.


1) DE Tank Carradine, Florida St (6-4, 274)
Carradine could have been a Top-10 pick in this draft if not for a Torn ACL late in the season. Dion Jordan was #1 on my Dolphins board, and Tank was #9. I’ll gladly roll the dice on him.

CB Jamar Taylor

2) CB Jamar Taylor, Boise St (5-11, 192)
Similar to former Dolphin CB Will Allen.

3) S John Cyprien, Florida International (6-0, 217)
Hard-hitting safety has a little Bob Sanders to him. Would immediately challenge Chris Clemons at FS.

4) OT Menelik Watson, Florida St (6-5, 310)
Would be a big roll of the dice at #54 after only one year at Florida St. Extremely raw, but very athletic and talented. If Watson makes a successful leap, the Dolphins may have addressed the OT position for a fraction of the cost.

<strong>5) OT Terron Armstead, Arkansas-Pine Bluff (6-5, 306)
Moved from a Day 3 pick to a Day 2 pick Ran a 4.71/40 at 6’5, 306.

6) TE Travis Kelce, Cincinnati (6-5, 255)
Meathead-type player with injury concerns off the field issues. His stock is similar to that of Rob Gronkowski when he came out of Arizona in 2010. Plays with attitude.

7) WR Justin Hunter, Tennessee (6-4, 196)
Reminds me of former 49ers WR J.J. Stokes. I’m not a huge fan of Hunter, but would take him at #54 solely because he’s 2 inches taller than any WR or TE on the roster.

8) G Brian Schwenke, California (6-3, 314)
One of my fave’s. Would replace Richie Incognito when he hits free agency in 2013. Perfect fit at LG in Mike Sherman’s zone blocking scheme.

9) CB Robert Alford, SE Louisiana (5-10, 188)
Raw small-school player won’t necessarily be pressed into action because of veteran CB depth on the roster.

10) CB Darius Slay, Mississippi St (6-0, 192)
Big, smooth CB is likely to be taken over teammate Jonathan Banks.

11) RB Eddie Lacy, Alabama* (5-11, 231)
Power back with low mileage. Would form a terrific 1-2 punch with speedy Lamar Miller.

12) S D.J. Swearinger, South Carolina (5-10, 208)
A step slower than Cyprien, but very similar otherwise. Very good tackler with just enough range to upgrade the FS position.

WR Keenan Allen

13) WR Keenan Allen, California (6-2, 206)
Falling because of 4.7/40 speed and concerns regarding left knee. Similar to 49ers WR Michael Crabtree when healthy.

14) WR Quinton Patton, Louisiana Tech (6-0, 204)
Could fall to #54 because he doesn’t stick out in one particular area. Solid across the board.

15) CB B.W. Webb, William & Mary (5-10, 184)
Small-school player stood out among the big boys during Senior Bowl week. Not sure if he has the size Ireland looks for at the CB position, however.

16) S Shamarko Thomas, Syracuse (5-9, 213)
Like Cyprien and Swearinger, he’s a hard-hitter whose range is good enough. Many have him as a 3rd/4th rounder, but I fell in love with the kid during the East-West shrine game.

17) DT Jesse Williams, Alabama (6-3, 323)
Solid, but not flashy. I think he’ll be a 10-year starter in this league. Would start in 2014 when Starks and/or Soliai leave for Free Agency.

18) WR Marquise Goodwin, Texas (5-9, 183)
Goodwin was underutilized (26 catches in 2012) but has unteachable speed. Could be a Mike Wallace-like find in the 2nd or 3rd ound.

19) TE Zach Ertz, Stanford* (6-5, 249)
I’ve always had him as more of a late 2nd round-type as opposed to the late 1st/early 2nd rounder most have had him at. His stock has dropped, but he still has a nice combo of size, speed, and experience.

20) RB Montee Ball, Wisconsin (5-10, 214)
Emmitt Smith-like vision and consistency, but lacks ideal measurables.
