    Draft Season is 75% Over. Time for an Updated Mock

    As always first round for the whole NFL then 7 for Miami. Comments much appreciated. Order is based off of CBS Sports.com Quick note, until Brett Hundley and Marcus Mariota announce their intentions I am not putting them in mock drafts since no signs have come out either way. If they do enter, both are top 15 picks.

    1.Houston Texans-Teddy Bridgewater QB, Louisville Bridgewater has been my number 1 pick for awhile, and I still think he is. There is talent in Houston still but Matt Schaub's weaknesses are becoming more prominent.

    2.St. Louis Rams-Anthony Barr OLB, UCLA Boy that RG3 trade looks awesome for the Rams right now. Surprise pick? Well St Louis is getting very good production from their D-Line, and while Ja'Deveon Clowney has been considered the best prospect by a lot of people, his production and fire on the field haven't matched. Besides, Barr is pretty damn good himself. Put him next to Little Animal and Alec Oggletree and behind that DL and you've got the makings of a dominant Front 7.

    3.Jacksonville Jaguars- Zack Mettenberger QB, LSU This is a gut pick. Clowney would be tough to pass up, but I can't see the Jags going into next season with Chad Henne and Blaine Gabbert as their QBs again. Nobody has helped their stock more this year than the LSU QB who a lot of people feel could contend for the number 1 spot.

    4.Atlanta Falcons-Ja'Deveon Clowney DE, South Carolina As I mentioned earlier, Clowney has hurt his stock a bit this season showing a lack of motivation and also deciding he couldn't play in games without checking with the trainers. While he easily is one of the 2 most talented players in the draft, the motor issues will hurt him in this day and age. Still, the Falcons are desperate for a pass rush.

    5.Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Jake Matthews OT, Texas A&M Mike Glennon has surprised me by breathing some life into Tampa's offense, but he needs protection. Donald Penn's weight issues keep flaring up.

    6.Minnesota Vikings-Derrick Carr QB, Fresno State David's little brother had a prolific career at Fresno State, and almost was close to getting the team into a BCS bowl this year. Christian Ponder isn't as bad as some make him out to be, but the constant injuries make him a liability. Carr also has a stronger arm to compliment the weapons the Vikings have.

    7.Oakland Raiders-Sammy Watkins WR, Clemson Not saying that either Terrelle Pryor or Matt McGloin are good enough to be starting QBs, but the Raiders do lack quality weapons outside. Even with me having him go this high, I feel like Watkins is a bit underrated as a prospect.

    8.Cleveland Browns-Johnny Manziel QB, Texas A&M Every time the Browns looked like they were turning it around this year, they had to start Brandon Weeden and then were back to being the Browns. Lombardi reportedly LOVES Johnny Football and has sent a scout to every A&M game. If nothing else Johnny Football will bring excitement to a rather boring franchise.

    9.Buffalo Bills-Khalil Mack OLB/DE, Buffalo The best player you've never heard of. Mario Williams has had a great second year in Buffalo and Dareus/Kile Williams is a great DT pairing. This is just a case of taking the best player available while getting help.

    10.Pittsburgh Steelers-Taylor Lewan OT, Michigan Biggest need for the Steelers is OT. Team could also get an upgrade at NT over McClendon, but their OL is in worse shape than ours is.

    11.New York Jets-Mike Evans WR, Texas A&M If a Manziel, Mettenberger, or Carr were available (which could happen if Hundley or Marriotta declare) I see the Jets going QB, but if they aren't like, the case here, I see them getting weapons on offense. Whether Rex is back or not I think the Jets try to find a way to keep Morningwig as OC and Evans has WCO experience.

    12.San Diego Chargers-Justin Gilbert CB, Oklahoma State Gilbert has been the best CB in the country this season. Derrick Cox has been a major disappointment for San Diego having been benched several times this season for poor play.

    13.Tennessee Titans-Ra'Shede Hageman DT, Minnesota Jake Locker took huge steps forward this year before his injury, and Kendall Wright is emerging as a number 1 WR. DT is kind of a weakness for the Titans, but Hageman is also arguably the best player available.

    14.St. Louis Rams-Darqueze Dennard CB, Michigan State I cannot stand anything about Michigan State, but that defense is just unreal. It's time for somebody on that team to get some credit, and Dennard fits the bill. Courtland Finnegan is on IR but wasn't that good before hand and Janoris Jenkins does give up big plays.

    15.New York Giants-Louis Nix DT, Notre Dame I toyed with the idea of safety, but Stevie Brown will be back next year after tearing his ACL. The Giants are known for going best player available no matter the position, and in my opinion Nix is the BPA.

    16.Green Bay Packers- HaHa Clinton-Dix S, Alabama Packers never have been able to replace Nick Collins. Don't know if Clinton-Dix will be able to either, but he fills a need.

    17.Baltimore Ravens-Marquise Lee WR, USC While the Ravens' offense has improved over the last few weeks, WR is still a bit of a need. Can't see the team letting a guy like Lee fall past them.

    18.Chicago Bears-Jason Verrett CB, TCU Tim Jennings and Charles Tillman when healthy is a damn good tandem, but they are getting older. Time to start injecting some youth into that secondary.

    19.Miami Dolphins- Jace Amaro TE, Texas Tech Charles Clay has been phenomenal for us this season, but he's not a true tightend. An asset for the offense for sure either way. While OT is a need, I'm firm in my belief that we are missing a big physical factor on the offense that can win jump balls, and we also miss a seam threat at tight end. At 6'6 and running a sub 4.7 40, Amaro fits the bill. He's had a monster season for the Red Raiders and has been compared to Gronk by Big 12 coaches. Early in the season Amaro said he wasn't going to declare, but rumors have since stated that he is. Bit of a maturity issue, but the kid is real good.

    20.Detroit Lions-Allen Robinson WR, Penn State Megatron is the best WR in football, but the talent after him in the receiving game for Detroit is significant. Robinson has had 2 great years under Bill O'Brien and truly is the most underrated WR prospect in the country.

    21.Philadelphia Eagles-CJ Mosely LB, Alabama The Eagles Defense has improved during their winning streak, but their LB corp is still a little small for the 3-4 transition. Mosely at 21 is also a bit of a steal.

    22.Dallas Cowboys-Timmy Jernigan DT, Florida State Dallas got rid of Rob Ryan and replaced him with Monte Kiffin... been a bit of a mistake. Dallas's interior DL isn't very good so a player like Jernigan is a good fit.

    23.Arizona Cardinals-David Fales QB, San Jose State Carson Palmer has been pretty good this year, but he's not getting any younger. Fales has put together a great career at San Jose State, and should be able to learn behind Palmer.

    24.Cincinnati Bengals-Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, Oregon Pac-Man Jones and Terrence Newman aren't getting any younger, Dre Kirkpatrick has been a disappointment, and Leon Hall just had his 2nd torn achilles. Might be time to address the CB positon

    25.Cleveland Browns-Cyrus Kouandjio OT/OG, Alabama Joe Thomas is one of the best OTs in the NFL if not the best, but the rest of the Cleveland OL kind of struggles. Kouandjio just happens to be BPA.

    26.San Francisco 49ers-Bradley Roby CB, Ohio State Disappointing season for Roby, but still a great talent. CB has been a bit of a weakness for the 9ers.

    27.Kansas City Chiefs-Eric Ebron TE, North Carolina Chiefs' offense lacks playmakers in the passing game. The TE position has been hit with the injury bug but when healthy the only proven guy they have is Anthony Fasano (who while solid is not a threat down the field). Ebron had a very good season, but is a bit raw.

    28.Carolina Panthers-Cyril Richardson OT/OG, Baylor The fact that the Panthers are doing well on offense with a former DT starting at OG says a lot for that coaching staff. Still need to improve that OL. Richardson probably should go a bit higher.

    29.New England Patriots-Will Sutton DT, Arizona State Vince Wilfork got hurt and is getting older so they have to start looking towards the future. I still can't believe more people don't have Sutton in round 1, but I'm sticking with him for now.

    30.New Orleans Saints-Davante Adams WR, Fresno State Kenny Stills is having a decent rookie year, but Marquis Colston and Lance Moore are starting to fade a bit. While the Saints do have bigger needs, they'll always lean towards helping the offense.

    31.Denver Broncos-Vic Beasley DE, Clemson Shaun Phillips is having a nice year replacing Elvis Dummerville but he's on the wrong side of 30. Beasley should give a nice compliment to Von Miller in the future

    32.Seattle Seahawks-Antonio Richardson OT, Tennessee OL outside of Okung and Unger is just meh. Richardson is best OL available.

    Dolphins Draft:
    1.Jace Amaro TE, Texas Tech


    2.James Hurt OT, North Carolina Have to address the OL at some point. Hurst makes a lot of sense for us. Here's a video of him against Clowney earlier this season.



    3.DaQuan Jones DT, Penn State One of Randy Starks or Paul Soliai will be gone if not both. I'm assuming only one will be gone so I look for a replacement early.



    4.Kurtis Drummond S, Michigan State Chris Clemmons is on a one year deal, and while he has played well, I dunno if we'll give him the contract he's looking for. Even if we do bring him back, we could use a 3rd safety. Drummond was a key part in a scary Michigan State defense.



    5.Dri Archer RB/WR/Return Specialist Kent State Not often a guy from Kent State gets preseason Heisman hype. Archer could go higher but his size will push him down. Basically a better version of Marcus Thigpen



    6.John Urchel OG, Penn State I think Nate Garner and Sam Brenner have shown enough to be given a chance to start next season if John Jerry isn't resigned. We still have Dallas Thomas too but another guard late can't hurt.

    7.Jordan Lynch QB, Northern Illinois Because why the hell not? I just got lazy here.

    Not a fan of Mettenberger at #3.

    Would move Fales into the top 10.

    Nix at #15 is a steal.

    I like the idea with Amaro but I think Miami is OT all the way...

    I think the Jets need to take a QB in the first round regardless of who's on the board. I'm hoping they're dumb enough to pick with Geno, but I'm not betting on it.
    I'm here to tell the truth about top secret Air Force project BAR STOOL. Gamma ray radiation from the particle accelerator under Joe Robbie Stadium is real! Get out while you can! This bad football team is just a front for something far more sinister!

    Halo LegendaryGalactic Empire medalHydra logo
    I would take Ebron over Amaro...I do like Hurst is the 2nd (a lot), but I get the feeling he will go at the top of the 2nd/late 1st

    jets not going qb would be comedic gold...i guess i got to get a real in depth look at this amaro kid...haven't been doing much college looks this year

    off that mock if it played out that way i'd be looking real hard at cyrus koundjo cj mosley and will sutton

    marquise lee at #17 for baltimore is stealing

    koundjo is not a good move guys run blocker and gets stood up more than i like in pass pro but his feet are better than he gets credit for

    As an ASU fan, Sutton is great, but he has a tendency to get injured, which may be due to the extra weight he put on before this season (about 40 lbs if I remember correctly). Still like him obviously.

    If Gus Bradley is looking to replicate what they're doing in Seattle, I think Mettenberger is a good option. Obviously, he's not similar to Wilson, but I think he'd thrive in a run-heavy system. And like Joe Flacco, his stature and arm strength will be significant advantages late in the season.

    You did your mock a day too soon, not that I thought Mettenberger was going #3 overall anyway, but his torn ACL definitely moves him down in the second round.

    You talk about Clay not being a true TE then have us take Amaro who is not a true TE. He's a big slot receiver, not a true TE or an inline blocker.
