What can the Dolphins add in this mock draft?
The regular season is over, and that means it’s time for a Miami Dolphins mock draft. Miami fell just short of making the playoffs in year two of their rebuild. The timeline may have been accelerated this season, but there are still plenty of holes that need to be filled.
A lot may change between now and April’s NFL Draft. One thing that’s not likely to change is the Dolphins biggest needs heading into the draft: Skill positions, interior offensive line, and safety. While it may be too early to project what the Dolphins choose to address in free agency, it’s never too early to have some fun with a mock draft!
Every year we hear debates on what the best strategy for the NFL Draft is. Do you draft strictly for need? Do you eschew needs and simply take the best player available? In actuality, the best answer is a combination of both. But where’s the fun in that? For this mock draft, I’ve decided to take a side. I want to see what would happen if the Dolphins were to take a hard-line, BPA approach to April’s NFL Draft.
It should be noted that for this Miami Dolphins mock draft, I used the Mock Draft Simulator over at Pro Football Network. Their simulator has not yet factored in compensatory picks, as those selections have not yet been announced. These picks were made in accordance with their consensus rankings. With that, let’s have some fun! Who do the Dolphins wind up with, which needs were addressed, and what holes still remain?
