Instead of getting a good look at who the Dolphins will select, we've been subject to various rumors, innuendos, possible smokescreens and fans stating both their biggest wishes for whom to pick, as well as their greatest fears.
What we do know now—more so than we did at the start of the offseason—is what Miami needs and what priority it seems to put at each need.
With the latter, we're not even sure what priority those are, but the Dolphins somewhat hinted at that in Jeff Ireland's last pre-draft press conference by stating (per the Sun-Sentinel):
"I feel very comfortable with Nate Garner and some of the developmental players...But we're going to upgrade the offensive line."
He'd later go on to say:
"The tight end position all together has gotten very athletic. It has gotten fast, big and athletic."
Keep in mind, this is also the same guy that once said this (per ESPN.com):
"Of course I want guys that have great upside," Ireland said. "This is the first pick in the draft. This guy is going to be -- you hope that he's a pillar of your defense for a long time."
Ireland would go on to draft Jake Long in that draft back in 2008 with the No. 1 pick.
In other words, this mock isn't based too much on what Ireland is saying, but rather some of Miami's needs and who will likely be the best player available. I won't include potential trade-ups or trade-downs, just each of the 11 draft picks and the players to go with those draft picks.
