Miami Dolphins Complete 7-Round Mock Draft Final Version

Just about two weeks ago, I made my second mock draft for the Miami Dolphins. But with the way the NFL draft works nowadays, that mock is practically ancient.

There have been a number of changes that make that draft unrealistic at this point, especially as you get into those middle rounds. As the first few picks change, it alters the rest of the draft dramatically.

Only four out of 11 players in this are the same from that previous mock, and only one of those are in the actual same draft slot.

Like the earlier mock, I didn't make any trades here, because they're extremely difficult to pull off on draft day and even harder to predict with any accuracy.

There are a few things that have changed, which forced me to make a new mock draft.

The first is that I'm less and less certain Justin Pugh will be available at No. 54 overall, where I had him going in that other mock, and I'm extremely certain now that D.J. Hayden won't be there at No. 42.

The other big change is that Johnathan Franklin's stock has (very deservedly) risen. There is no way he lasts until the fourth round, where I considered him a steal in the last mock.

With all of those things in mind, here is my final shot at a mock draft before the actual draft starts on Thursday night.
