Normally I don't like doing mock drafts, whether entire first round or just Dolphins related. Mock drafts are like opinions which are like...well everyone has one. However, I was looking through some of the media reports of guys the Dolphins were interested in and wanted to see if I could slot a hybrid draft combining what I want and what I think the Dolphins will do. Here's where I ended up; 12) John Cyprien - S 42) Menelik Watson - OT 54) Travis Kelce - TE 77) Jon Bostic - LB 82) Will Davis - CB 110) Mike Gillislee - RB 146) Terry Hawthorne - CB 166) Quanterus Smith - DE 217) Jasper Collins - WR 224) Philip Lutzenkirchen - TE 250) Peter Lalich - QB Some notes Some of the media are taking about Vaccaro as the top safety in the draft. I don't agree, I'm liking John Cyprien out of FIU. Exciting to watch, I think he could be a late riser up to the 12th pick and the Dolphins have had reported interest in him. Will people see it as a reach? Yeah. But sometimes you just have to stay put and take the guy you like. Draft day will tell if I'm right about this or just crazy. There's no Tavon Austin, Ryan Swope, or any wide receivers before the 7th round with Jasper Collins. I just don't see a high pick on a WR. I'd love it, I'd give my left arm for them to draft Quinton Patton, but I don't see it as likely. There's been reported interested in both Will Davis and Jon Bostic and I think they fit those slots well. Mike Gillislee is a selfish pick, I'm a big fan and I have appreciation for his ability to run at Florida against strong defenses that knew UF couldn't pass the ball if they tried. Don't know about my slotting of Quanterus Smith, I have him as the compensatory pick in the 5th, don't know if he'll be there. I mailed in the 7th round, I went with CK's guy, Lalich because I don't really know about the back end of this QB class. I'm a fan of Lutzenkirchen who has some great hands.
