In my 2nd installment of the Miami mock draft I have the dolphins being very active with the trades. Doing what they have to to add bodies and fill needs. Right now we have major holes at guard and linebacker.
Forrest Lamp-OG/C-Western Kentucky 6’4” 310
Lamp is the best interior lineman in this draft.
Great feet, power and versatility to play center during Pouncey’s annual missed time.
He could even play right tackle in a pinch.
He’s a Zach Martin clone that will become a perenial Pro Bowl guard.
Adding Lamp would probably make Miami’s line one of the best 6 or 7 units in the NFL.
I have Miami and Washington working out a deal that sends the 49th pick in round 2 to Miami in exchange for Miami’s 54th(2nd rd), 166th(5th rd) and 178th(5th rd) picks in the draft.
Miami makes this move to ensure they get the linebacker of the future that they covet.
With the 49th pick the Dolphins take LB Raekwon McMillan
Pick 49-from Wash.
Raekwon McMillan-ILB-The Ohio State 6’2” 240
McMillan has really had himself an impressive draft season, proving at the combine that he can stay on the field as a 3-down linebacker in the NFL.
A month ago he probably would still be available at pick 54 but he
Is stock is rising now. Whether its McMillan, Cunningham or Davis, whichever linebacker starts to fall past #45 i think Miami needs to move up to get one of these top level prospects.
McMillan is a very good read and react linebacker with great instincts. He’s quicker than fast.
Reads quarterback's eyes and slides into passing lanes.
Im hearing that Raekwon has that Ray Lewis type leadership quality, very vocal and fiery prescence. The Dolphins are scheduled to meet with him.
*****traded to Washington
I have Miami and Cleveland working out a deal that sends Miami’s compensatory pick, pick 97 overall to Cleveland for the Browns 108th overall pick and 145th pick.
So basically Miami moves back 11 spots from #97 and gains the first pick of round 5.
*****traded to Cleveland
Pick 108-from Cleve.
Daeshon Hall-DE-Texas A&M 6’5” 266
So we trade back 11 spots and still get an excellent DE prospect.
Hall obviously flew under the radar playing opposite Myles Garrett,
But he’s one of my favorite players in this draft and probably the best mid-round pass rusher in the draft. Already experienced in the wide-9, Hall is a solid pass rusher with some crafty moves.
He’s still learning to play with his hand in the dirt because he moved from outside linebacker.
Pick 145-from Cleve.
Corn Elder-nickel CB-Miami 5’10” 185
Elder models his game after Tyrann Mathieu.
Elder is a tenacious slot corner that will stick his head in the fan in run support and get physical with the Julian Edelman’s of the league. He’s a pitbull.
*****traded to Washington
*****traded to Washington
Delano Hill-SS-Michigan 6’1” 216
This draft is so deep at safety that a few of them are gonna get pushed down to us in the 5th round. He’s a fast in-the-box strong safety that defends the run well. Hill doles out punishment on runners and he’d be like an extra linebacker for us.
Has good enough cover ability and is a finisher as a tackler
Danny Isidora-OG-Miami 6’3” 306
Isidora would be a nice fit with Miami as a long term project.
Has good lateral movement but needs to get stronger. Can be groomed to challenge and take over for Ted Larsen at right guard.
Eric Saubert-TE-Drake 6’5” 253
A small-school developmental tight end to add to the mix with Thomas, Gray and Duarte.
Has good size and speed and creates yards after catch, but has inconsistent hands.
Has to perform better as a blocker.
Steven Taylor-OLB-Houston 6’1” 225
Taylor made plays all over the field for Houston, grading positively against the run, as a pass rusher, and in coverage. Miami could get creative with him at outside linebacker.
Will be a quality reserve linebacker and core special teamer.
So after the trades I have us drafting 8 total players.
An elite guard to play next to Tunsil, our MLB for the next 8 years, a future starting defensive end, a lockdown slot corner, a potential steal at safety and 3 developmental reserves.
