After a busy free agency period for the Miami Dolphins, their draft picture has cleared up a lot. They filled almost all of their holes, and reinforced depth at others, leaving them with options in this draft. Even since my last mock draft, Miami has made a few significant moves that leaves them with even more flexibility.
The big day is almost two weeks away, when Miami will find themselves faced with the tough decision about trading up in the first round. At this stage, they would likely only move up to draft a tackle, and there are a few reasons I am against that, which I will outline on the first slide.
For now, it's worth noting that Miami would likely have to swap first rounders with Cleveland, giving up at least a second and probably either their fourth or fifth rounders as well to get to the sixth spot. Jumping Arizona would be a must to get a tackle, and they would likely overpay to do that.
Miami still has a big need at cornerback, and could add pieces to every part of their defense. The offense is in decent shape right now, but could use upgrades as well. The Dolphins have been trying to get faster on offense, but they need to make sure they are well-rounded as well.
Currently, Eric Winston and Tyson Clabo are still available on the market. Either right tackle would solidify the Dolphins' line while taking away a lot of pressure for taking one in the draft. I still think there's a chance that one of them is signed, but I had to assume otherwise for this mock.
Lastly, I'll use this opportunity here to say that the Dolphins will absolutely not take Tavon Austin in the first round. The Dolphins have Mike Wallace and Lamar Miller, and they have too many other holes to take an undersized combination of the two 12th overall.
