View Full Version : RealDriscoll's Miami Dolphins Draft Board

Despite coming off of a 11-5 and being AFC East Division Champions the Dolphins have many pressing needs. I have developed a Top 20 Draft Board for the Miami Dolphins. Remeber this is not an overall draft board, it is a draft borad for the Miami Dolphins only so people who I don't think will be available at #25 will not be on this list (ie: Aaron Curry)

1. Larry English-Outside Linebacker-Northern Illinois

* Reminds me of Demarcus Ware as they both come from small schools, play with fire, and have a arare ability to get to the Quarterback. He would flourish in 3-4 defense playing opposite of Joey Porter.

2. Clint Sintim-Outside Linebacker-Virginia

*Being playing in the 3-4 Defense at Virginia for four years now. Didn't impress me tons during the Senior Bowl game but I think he would be another guy who would flourish in our system.

3. Sean Smith-Cornerback-Utah

*Could turn out to be the best corner in the draft. Played some safety in college as well so this guy is an upgrade to the entire secondary.

4. Hakeem Nicks-Wide Receiver-North Carolina

*This guy could be the #1 receiver that this team lacks. Watch the highlights against West Virginia if you have any question.

5. Rey Maualuga-Inside Linebacker-USC

*Plays a little reckless but is the most dynamic defensive player in this draft.

6. William Moore-Safety-Missouri

*If he would have declared after his Junior year he would have been a Top 15 pick.

7. DJ Moore-Cornerback-Vanderbilt

*Good cover skills and physical against the run.

8. Peria Jerry-Defensive Tackle-Mississippi

*Undersized to be a nose tackle but if he could add some weight he could be dominate in the interior.

9. Brandon Pettigrew-Tight End-Oklahoma State

*Most complete Tight End prospect in the last decade

10. Louis Delmas-Safety-Western Michigan

*Small school guy proving to be the #1 safety in this class. Senior Bowl coaches were raving about this guy/.

11. Brian Cushing-Linebacker-USC

*Versatile player who can play Inside and Outside.

12. Max Unger-Offensive Line-Oregon

*Versatile linemen who can play four positions on the offensive line.

13. Duke Robinson-Offensive Guard-Oklahoma

* Best guard in the class and we have questions here considering our two starters are coming off seaons where they finished on the IR

14. Darrius Heyward Bey-Wide Receiver-Maryland

*Speed and size but a little raw.

15. Rashad Johnson-Safety-Alabama

*Ball-Hawking Free Safety

16. Alex Mack-Center-California

*Mean SOB who can handle nose tackles.

17. Kenny Britt-Wide Receiver-Rutgers

*6"4 with strength who can create good seperation.

18. Alphonso smith-Cornerback-Wake Forest

*Might be short but the kid packs a punch. He has the attitude to be a lock-down corner and the ball skills to match.

19. Tyson Jackson-Defensive End-LSU

*We have Merling and Langford but this guy has 3-4 End written all over him.

20. Michael Johnson-Defensive End-Georgia Tech

*Could he make the switch to Outside backer in a 3-4?

After the 1st Round look at these guys..

*Sen'Derrick Marks-Defensive Tackle-Auburn
*Antoine Caldwell-Center-Alabama
*Brian Robiskie-Wide Receiver-Ohio State
*Keenan Lewis-Cornerback-Oregon State
*Ramses Barden-Wide Receiver-Cal. Poly
* Otis Wiley-Safety-Michigan State
*Jasper Brinkley-Inside Linebacker-South Carolina
*Victor Harris-Cornerback-Virginia Tech
*Kaluka Maiava-Linebacker-USC
