Miami Dolphins Way-Too-Early 2013 NFL Mock Draft
Jim Z. Rider-US PRESSWIRE

At 4-6, the Miami Dolphins are still alive in the AFC playoff hunt. 

The first-place New England Patriots are riddled by injuries, and the Jets and Bills are just as erratic as the Dolphins. However, the 'Phins have looked awful in the last three weeks, and their upcoming schedule isn't particularly friendly. 

Miami still has to play New England twice, face the 49ers in San Francisco and host the Seahawks and Bills—two teams that pose very tough matchups. 

Call me a pessimist, but the best-case scenario I can envision for this team is a 7-9 finish. And that's a best-case scenario. When is the last time the Dolphins actually found themselves in a best-case scenario?

In all likelihood, Miami will once again pick somewhere around 10th overall, which gives it another chance to add an elite player. The Dolphins can also add immediate contributors with their two second and two third-round picks. 

The outlook of this draft class is subject to change drastically as free agency plays out. With Jake Long, Randy Starks, Reggie Bush, Sean Smith and 16 other players slated for free agency after this season, the anatomy of the Dolphins roster could change with the departure of one or two starters.
