Re: Mock Draft Simulator
My draft as the Miami Dolphins GM:
19 - OT Zack Martin, Notre Dame
Protection for Ryan Tannehill. Opens up the run game.
50 - G Xavier S'ua-Filo, UCLA
81 - RB Bishop Sankey, Washington
Lamar Miller - Daniel Thomas was a meh combination. Part of that was o-line but RB help needed to shore up the run game
112 - DT DaQuan Jones, Penn State
Possible free agency loss of DTs this offseason, should help address that.
143 - ILB Lamin Barrow, LSU
Miami's linebackers sucked vs. the run, so here's a solid linebacker to shore up the run D. Should also address either this or tackle position in free agency, if tackle is addressed I would consider drafting LB in the first round and locking up the Miami run D for the next few years.
174 - CB Andre Hal, Vandy
Steal in the 6th round, IMO.
211 - TE Jordan Najvar, Baylor
Supplemental TE to Charles Clay.
If Ryan Tannehill wasn't getting sacked or pressured every other snap, Miami would actually be contending. Last season Ryan Tannehill was sacked 58 times, the most by any QB in the league. With better protection and the weapons he has, plus a rejuvenated running game, Miami will be in contention. Tannehill needs to improve his connection with Wallace, and the Dolphins will be in business.
