 phinsfansc Mock Draft 3.0
Quote:
We are now 4 days away from the 2010 NFL Draft, and expect a lot more activity from the Dolphins leading to the draft as they try to acquire additional picks as well as getting back the 2nd round pick that they used to get Marshall.

The Dolphins would most certainly like to trade down and they are in a great spot to trade down. Miami is high enough in the draft order at #12 for teams looking to trade up to get the player they want, with the added plus of not being in the top ten and having to shelve out the huge money that a top 10 selection comes with. There are too many trade down scenarios being discussed, so let it play out as we lead up to the draft.

If I can, I will try to do one more mock draft right before the draft. Let's get started with 3.0.


1) Derrick Morgan, DE/OLB, Georgia Tech, 6'3, 266 lbs, 4.72 40 - Morgan has the size that Miami likes in the OLB, he has the motor that is always running hot and he is an all around very good DE/OLB prospect. Very good against the run, stout at the point of attack and does a great job in pursuit, disciplined and assignment sound. As a pass rusher Morgan has a repertoire of moves, from bull rush to spin moves, he has violent hands to disengage from OL, terrific work ethic. The negatives in regard to Derrick is that he lacks elite athleticism, speed and quickness, average agility and change of direction, which leads to the concerns of Derrick being able to make the move to OLB in a 3-4 scheme. For his 3 year career at Georgia Tech, Morgan finished with 115 tackles, 29.5 tackles for lost and 19.5 sacks, 7.0 sacks in his sophmore year and 12.5 his junior year.

3) Reshad Jones, FS, Georgia, 6'1, 214 lbs, 4.56 40 - Great athlete that is tough, extremely physical with very good ball skills. Very solid in run support and will bring the wood and is versatile, with the ability to play both strong and free safety. Negatives with Reshad is that he can be to aggressive and and not assignment sound, questionable instincts and awarness and can take bad angles at times. Reshad finished his career with 206 tackles, 13 pass breakups and 11 interceptions.

4) Daniel Te'o Nesheim, DE/OLB, Washington, 6'3, 263 lbs, 4.72 40 - Daniel also fits the size prototype that the Dolphins like and also has that same type of non stop motor. Versatile pass rusher also with a variety of pass rush ammunition ranging from bull rush to swim moves to rip moves. Stout against the run and has good instincts to feel out the screens as well. Negatives on Daniel were that he was not considered a great athlete and more of an over acheiver and there were concerns about his game translating to the NFL being a limited athlete. He had scouts scrambling after putting up 29 reps at 225 lbs, running a 4.72 40 and the fastest 3-cone drill among DL at 6.91. Daniel finished his career at Washington with 194 tackles, 47.0 tackles for lost and 30.0 sacks in his 4 year career.

5) Al Woods, DT/NT, Louisiana State, 6'3, 310 lbs, 5.14 40 - Nice size with long arms (36'), athletic and moves well for a big man. Very strong, powerful and stout at the point of attack. He uses his hands well and can occupy multiple blockers, which is very important for a NT. Bull rusher that can collapse a pocket and has upside. The negatives are that Woods production on the field does not match his workout numbers and has been an underacheiver on a talented DL front at LSU. Light finally seems to click on his senior season. Woods finished his career with 73 tackles, 8.0 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks.

6) Micah Johnson, ILB, Kentucky, 6'2, 258 lbs, 4.84 40 - Mike Nolan schemes calls for a physical, inside thumper. Johnson is a higgly aggressive run defender and can take on and shed blockers, which is need as a 3-4 inside linebacker. Reads quickly and attacks the line of scrimmage, hitting seams to make the tackle at or near line of scrimmage. Forceful hitter that has shown the ability to cause fumbles. Good as an inside pass rusher able to bull rush as well as get underneath the pads of a blocker and push him into the pocket. Negatives with Micah is that he is stiff and it shows in pass coverage, shows adequate instincts in zone coverage with marginal straight line speed. Micah finished his career at Kentucky with 285 tackles, 23.5 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, 9 pass breakups and 2 interceptions.

6) Adrian Tracy, DE/OLB, William & Mary, 6'3, 248 lbs, 4.75 40 - A walk-on that turned into a 4 year starter for William & Mary with tremendous production. Tracy combines his ability as a pass rusher with the ability to be able to drop into pass coverage. He is fluid in the hips with quickness dropping at the correct angle into zone coverage. Tracy uses his length and strength to generate pass rush and that is were the negative comes in. Limited pass rush repertoire and needs more than just a bull rush to to succed at the next level. Adrian finished his career with 283 tackles, 62.5 tackles for loss and 31.0 sacks.

6) Clifton Geathers, DE, South Carolina, 6'7, 299 lbs, 4.98 40 - Miami spoke with this young man at the combine and Geathers has and exceptional upside. Massive with with nice speed and quickness for a man his size. Very good against the run, as he can anchor and create a pile, but has the lateral quickness to contain runs inside. Uses primarily bull rush, but has swim move and rip and needs to develop his pass rush moves more. The negatives are his lack of playing time and he could have really used another year of college, as he is still somewhat raw with limited production. Geathers finished his career with 72 tackles, 12 tackles for loss and 6.0 sacks.

7) Scott Sicko, TE, New Hampshire, 6'4, 250 lbs, 4.53 40 - The Dolphins are looking to find a TE that can stretch the field vertically in the seam and could take one much earlier in the process. If they decide to wait, this young man has the production at the D-2 level along with the size and speed. Explosive athlete with a 35' vertical and 10.2 broad jump. Sicko finished with 160 catches for 2,023 yards at a 12.6 average with 22 career touchdowns.

7) Jacques McClendon, OG, Tennessee, 6'3, 324 lbs, 5.22 40 - Miami could look to add young depth at the OG position as they are looking to trade injury prone Justin Smiley. McClendon is a powerful mauler, doing 37 reps at 225 lbs at the Tennessee Pro Day. McClendon was a 3rd team preseason ALL-SEC selection.

7) Trindon Holliday, WR/KR, Louisiana State, 5'5, 166 lbs, 4.34 40 - Miami just traded Ted Ginn, a disappointment as the 9th pick in the 2007 draft as a WR, but a plus to the Dolphins as a kickoff return specialist. Holliday has 4 career return for touchdowns, 2 as a kickoff return guy and 2 as a punt returner. He averaged 24.7 yards as a kickoff return guy and 15.0 yards as a punt returner. Explosive with world class speed, Holliday can also be used in the Wildcat package and has played as a RB and WR for LSU

SC-

I am hoping the Fins can trade out of #12. If they trade in to the mid-20s, who do you see them picking up? I think the DE from Michigan is a possibility if they do. Finally, the more I see of Spiller, the more I like him. Do you think the Fins go there if Morgan is off the board?

Scott Sicko is a mandatory draft pick. If he ever gets on a squad thats a jersey I'm buying.

As always, great mock, Tony.

I don't know if they'll wait till round 7 to take an offensive player, but I agree that it will be defensive heavy. I would not mind seeing 2 OLB's in the first 3 picks either.

I agree....Scott Sicko is a MUST draft.

hallphin, if Brandon Graham was 6'3, he would most definitely be the pick at #12 and I don't know if they would trade down. That being said, this regime seems to stick to there prototype in regards to size. A kid to look at if the Phins trade down is Everson Griffen, the DE/OLB from Southern Cal, who is a freak of an athlete. 6'3, 272 lbs running a 4.66 40, he had 18.0 career sacks in his 3 years at SC, 8.0 coming in his junior year. If Morgan is gone and Miami cannot trade down, it will depend who is on the board. If Morgan, Berry & Thomas are gone, then Spiller could be a consideration, especially with Ted Ginn being traded and the Dolphins with a need for a return specialist. Miami spent a lot of time with Dexter McCluster, and CJ is a bigger, faster and better version of Dexter.

Also, depending on were they are they could certainly take a hard look at Dan Williams as he is more of a value pick later in the 1st round. This may be a reach on my part, but I also think they may consider Jermaine Gresham, the outstanding TE out of Oklahoma, the consensus top TE in this draft. He certainly has the size and playmaking ability at the TE position, the speed Miami wants to stretch the defense and the size to be a solid blocker, although that is not a strength right now.

I see Mr. Sicko is becoming a popular fella...... :grin:
