2010 NFL Mock Draft: Miami Dolphins Edition
2009 was a bit of a let down for Dolphin nation. Miami came off of an 11-5 2008 campaign and an AFC East championship only to fall to 7-9 in '09. Fans can blame key injuries to star players such as Chad Pennington and Ronnie Brown. Chad Henne stepped in and took over and looks as if he is now the team leader at QB. Let us explore what the Dolphins can do to rebound and get back on top of their division. IN PARCELS WE TRUST.
Round 1: Rolando McClain
ILB 6'4" 248 Alabama
If you know anything about McClain then you know that he is the smartest linebacker entering the draft in years. Alabama players called him Saban on the field. Look at guys like Demeco Ryans and Patrick Willis. McClain is the next guy to join the list of great young linebackers. The Dolphins defense could use some run stopping help and this is the man to do it. He comes from a winning program and was coached by one of the nations top college coaches. Whats not to like?
Round 2: Marshwan Gilyard
WR 6'1" 180 Cincinnati
If Henne is going to develop into a good QB, he is gonna need more weapons in the pass game. Ginn Jr. is good but Henne needs another legit reciever. Marshwan Gilyard was one of the nations most dangerous weapons in the passing and return game. Miami would be foolish to pass on a guy with so much potential here in the second round.
Round 3: Lamarr Houston
DT 6'2" 300 Texas
We are back on the subject of Miami and their run stop defense. The Dolphins need some size in the gut of their defense. Houston is a big dude and showed this last year that he can control the line of scrimmage with his size and speed. He is the poor mans Suh in the draft. Dolphin fans will love this guy. He is a hard worker and just knows how to tackle.
Round 4: George Selvie
George Selvie DE 6'4" 255 South Florida
This guy was expected to be a top 5 pick a year ago, but has really dropped off the radar as of late. He is a local guy in South Florida and has all the skills to be a huge steal in this years draft. Miami's defense will have a huge new group of young talent after this draft is all said and done.
Round 6: Chris Brown
Chris Brown RB 5'11" 206 Oklahoma
A lot of experts expect Miami to take C.J. Spiller with their first pick. That is just stupid. Miami will resign Ronnie Brown. Ricky Williams is getting older but its not time to break the bank for a top RB. Chris Brown is explosive and very capable as a back up. With the right team and the right coaching he can become a great weapon in the offense.
Round 7: Ryan Stamper
OLB 6'2" 234 Florida
Stamper would be a huge pick late in the draft. He was a team leader at one the top schools in the country, you know that Florida school (They are kinda good). The last pick for Miami seals up the huge defense talent group of their 2010 draft.
