Miami Dolphins 2013 NFL Mock Draft

For the second week in a row, I’ve only made two changes to my mock.

The reason why I have kept the same mock for a few weeks now is because it works. Every prospect that I have them picking can really help the Miami Dolphins out right from the get-go.

The first round pick will be interesting because many have the fins’ picking up Xavier Rhodes. I don’t necessarily buy into his hype. If the Dolphins really want a lock down corner, Jamar Taylor is your guy in the second round. The Dolphins should go offensive line in the first round, which is what I have them doing in this mock.

I have the Dolphins picking up a different linebacker this mock then my previous one. While Kiko Alonso is a good prospect, I think Trevardo Williams is even a better one, and could potentially fly under the radar.

I am not too hot on Robert Lester anymore. Earl Wolff is projected to go in the fifth or sixth round, so if he is still available in the sixth, the Dolphins should pick him up.

Everything else stays the same. Like I said, next week’s mock may have a completely different look, but based on where The Dolphins are right now, all of the picks make sense and I just love these prospects.

Comment and let me know your thoughts. I am always open for suggestions, and I love to hear what the fans have to say. A few weeks ago fans expressed what they wanted to see in the next mock. I listened to them, and took their advice. So, keep the suggestions coming!

First Round: Lane Johnson, Offensive Tackle - Oklahoma

Despite Rant Sport’s collective first round mock, I still think Lane Johnson will be available for the Dolphins at 12th overall and will be the next great left tackle.

Second Round: Jamar Taylor, Cornerback, Boise State

Jamar Taylor is arguably the best corner prospect in the draft. He’s a great talent, and is physical and instinctive. I don’t think the Dolphins will buy into Xavier Rhodes in the first round.

Second Round (2): Gavin Escobar, Tight End, San Diego State

The Dolphins need a blocking tight end. Gavin Escobar can be the next big target tight end in the league. Escobar is 6’6, and extremely athletic for his size. He has good hands, is a good blocker, and a good fit for the Dolphins.

Third Round: Trevardo Williams, Linebacker, University of Connecticut

I had them going Kiko Alonso last week, but I really believe Trevardo Williams will slip in the third round because he is an under-sized but explosive athlete. His quickness and speed have earned him the accolade of having arguable the best get-off of any edge pass rusher in this draft. Williams will be a good linebacker in this league, even with his size.

Third Round (2): Devin Taylor, Defensive End, South Carolina

Along with Corey Lemonier, the 6’7 Devin Taylor can be a force on the defensive line. Between Lemonier and Taylor, is could be a force to be reckoned with on the line.

Fourth Round: Corey Lemonier, Defense End, Auburn

Corey Lemonier is one of the best speed rushers in the draft, and I think he will fit well with the Dolphins.

Fifth Round: Earl Wolff, Safety, NC State

Robert Lester was my pick last week, but I really like Earl Wolff out of NC State. Wolff is instinctive tough and compares to Deon Grant, so he must be good. Wolff wraps well and possesses a good athletic body that is needed to compete in the NFL.

Seventh Round: Denard Robinson, Wide Receiver, Michigan

I still have Denard Robinson here. I love him as a football player in general and really hope that he becomes a great wildcat play caller.

Seventh Round (2): Tanner Hawkinson, Offensive Tackle, Kansas

Tanner Hawkinson is a guy who every team would like to have. Hawkinson can be that work horse on the line for an offense that needs his service.
