The long trek through NFL draft season is over. Miami holds the 12th pick in the 2013 NFL draft. What will they do with it?
Rumors and speculation continue to fly around the Dolphins. Jeff Ireland has been reportedly in talks with Kansas City's John Dorsey to acquire left tackle Branden Albert, reportedly willing to pay him more than Jake Long got with St. Louis (via Ed Werder, h/t Josh Alper, ProFootballTalk).
With no trade in place yet, this mock draft assumes it will not happen.
It certainly seems like an inevitability, but the move is a bit perplexing. Miami ate up most of its cap space signing the likes of Mike Wallace and Brent Grimes, and trading a high-round draft pick to pay an older left tackle doesn't seem like a practical response to losing Jake Long.
There has also been plenty of speculation that Miami would move up to take one of the top three offensive tackles, assuming Ireland doesn't trade for Albert.
With the volatility and uncertainty of this year's draft, it felt more prudent to leave trades out of this final mock draft.
So, without further ado, here is the final Dolphins mock draft.
