Post Final Phinfever Mock Seven Round
It’s a Quarterback league and the Rams have their chance to become a team with an elite QB when they draft Sam Bradford. No brainers for picks 2 and 3 Suh and McCoy are arguably the best players available and Defensive Tackle is a need for the Lions and especially the Bucs. Offensive Tackle has been a need for the Redskins for some time now and Okung could be the best on the board. The Chiefs have needs everywhere and Berry is the best player on the board he would be a huge help to a leaky Chiefs Defense. The Seahawks can no longer lean on Walter Jones which leaves a big hole at Offensive Tackle. Trent Williams could be the best player on the board here as well. The Browns have been blowing lots of smoke but a there is an immediate need at Quarterback for them and Clausen fits what Holmgren likes to do. The Raiders love their freakish athletes and Pierre Paul certainly is that he also fits what the Raiders like to do on defense. The Bills are hopeless at the Tackle position Bulaga fits an immediate need there. The Jaguars are in desperation mode trying to keep the team in Jacksonville and increasing viewership they need some hope and Tebow provides that even if he rides the pine this season. The Broncos are in obvious need of a big play receiver and would be lucky to grab Bryant at 11.

1-Rams-QB-Sam Bradford-Oklahoma-6/4-236-4.79
2-Lions-DT-Ndamukong Suh -Nebraska-6/4-307-5.03
3-Bucs-DT-Gerald McCoy -Oklahoma-6/4-295-5.04
4-Redskins-OT-Russell Okung -Oklahoma State-6/5-307-5.18
5-Chiefs-FS-Eric Berry-Tennessee-6/1-211-4.40
6-Seahawks-OT-Trent Williams-Oklahoma-6/5-315-4.81
7-Browns-QB-Jimmy Clausen-Notre Dame-6/3-222-4.76
8-Raiders-DE-Jason Pierre-Paul-South Florida-6/5-270-4.71
9-Bills-OT-Bryan Bulaga-Iowa-6/6-314-5.20
10-Jaguars-QB-Tim Tebow-Florida-6/3-236-4.71
11-Broncos from Bears-WR-Dez Bryant-Oklahoma State-6/2-224-4.52
12-Dolphins-DE-Derrick Morgan -Georgia Tech-6/3-266-4.77

After losing Taylor and Porter the Dolphins are in obvious need of a Pass Rusher. While not the most explosive player Derrick Morgan certainly does not have inadequate explosion. What Morgan does have is excellent closing speed. His forty is slower than that of Graham, Kindle, Griffen, and Hughes but he covers 10 yards faster than all four of them which for a 270 pound lineman is a much more important attribute. Morgan also showcased better agility and movement than Sergio Kindle. Morgan finished with 18.5 tackles for loss and 12.5 sacks this season.

73-FS-Major Wright-Florida-6/1-206-4.44

Major Wright has good explosion and closing speed and is a big hitter. He excels at being an enforcer over the middle separating the receiver from the football. Played Center Fielder for the Gators his entire career occasionally dropping down to man coverage. Might be better suited at Strong Safety but can play both positions. Yeremiah Bell is getting up there in age so an athlete of Wright’s ability would be a valuable asset.

110-RB-Ben Tate-Auburn-5/11-220-4.34

Ben Tate is a classic I Formation back and got a raw deal as Auburn shifted to a spread offense this past offseason. Tate has to be on the Dolphins radar. Not only is he incredibly fast and explosive posting combine numbers of a sub 4.4 forty, a 40 inch vertical and over a 10 foot broad jump he also showcases very good strength doing 26 reps of 225 pounds and is excellent at breaking tackles.

145-WR-Joe Webb-UAB-6/3-223-4.46

2009 CUSA player of the year Joe Webb threw for 2300 yards and rushed for 1400 yards for a total of 32 touchdowns. He only threw four picks. Webb is the first player in NCAA history to pass for over 2000 yards and rush for over 1000 yards in two consecutive seasons. At his pro day he posted a 42.5 inch vert and over an 11 foot broad jump with 21 bench reps. His freshman season he caught 30 passes for 459 yards proving he could make the move to Receiver. Huge hands, long arms, great size and athleticism make Webb an intriguing prospect especially the second day.

173-DT-Jeff Owens-Georgia-6/1-304-4.97
174-DE-Kevin Basped-Nevada-6/5-258-4.75
179- SS-Myron Rolle-Florida State-6/2-215-4.59

Jeff Owens posted great numbers at the combine including 44 reps of 225 pounds and exceptional speed for his size. Owens could be an excellent NT in a 34. Basped posted 33.5 sacks in three years and could be an interesting OLB prospect. We all know about Rolle his speed lacks but he could be an excellent special teamer or adequate SS, is very smart.

212-CB-Sam Shields-Miami (Fla.)-5/11-184-4.32
219-WR-Kyle Williams-Arizona State-5/10-188-4.40
252-ILB-Micah Johnson-Kentucky-6/2-258-4.99

Sam Shields of the U was supposed to be their next big WR but had to make the move to Corner where he showed some promise. Possessing excellent speed and tremendous explosion Shields could prove to be a real late day steal like Bruce Johnson. At the very least he could be a great special teamer was the gunner for the U. Kyle Williams is a speedster and proven return man. Reliable hands and runs good routes especially from the slot. Micah Johnson is coming off an injury but proved to be a real beast in the middle. A two down linebacker could be another real steal which there happens to be lots of in this draft.

Other First Rounders
FS-Earl Thomas-Texas-5/10-202-4.43
OLB-Brandon Graham-Michigan-6/2-268-4.71

Some believe Earl Thomas is better than Berry. Possesses good ball skills and is excellent in coverage. Graham is tenacious off the edge putting up good career stats. Doesn’t have quite the upside of Morgan.

Second Round
The Dolphins don’t have a second round pick but there are some rumors that they are working on acquiring one and for good reason. Carlos Dunlap could be a steal if available. Dunlap has some work ethic issues but he is young and has tons of upside he draws comparisons to Julius Peppers and Mario Williams. Nate Allen would be available but a Safety could be had later at better value. Lamarr Houston from Texas is a beast and would be an excellent 34 Defensive End. 30 Reps at 225 pounds he showcases excellent explosion. Houston racked up an impressive 22 Tackles for loss and 8 Sacks from the Defensive Tackle spot this past season. Tight Ends Dennis Pitta and Aaron Hernandez are excellent options. Hernandez is the first player in SEC history to win the Best Tight End Award as he emerged as a big play threat for the Gators in the absence of Percy Harvin. Pitta has good hands and superb receiving ability he also moves well for a big guy. Taylor Price has excellent size speed combination at 6 foot 1 and 200 pounds posting a 4.4 flat. Looks the part of a big play threat but didn’t get to really showcase his skills in a big way at Ohio. Morgan Burnett finished his career with fourteen picks and possesses excellent size. He isn’t the fastest Defensive Back but has very good awareness and decent hitting power.

Third Round
A trio of talented Tight Ends could be around in the third round. Dorin Dickerson doesn’t possess prototypical size for a Tight End but he is talented enough to play multiple positions making him a very intriguing prospect. Great speed, hands, and tremendous explosion makes Dickerson a multiple threat. Ed Dickson has good hands and speed with nice moves. Jimmy Graham is extremely athletic possessing great speed. Only one year playing football is a project but showcases great upside. Mike Neal is a freak athlete. Incredible speed strength and explosiveness 6 foot 3 and 295 pounds racked up 21.5 tackles for loss and 11 sacks the last two seasons despite being constantly double teamed. Montario Hardesty is a big back with very good speed and quickness for his size to go with tremendous explosion. A workhorse at Tennessee expect Hardesty to carry a rich tradition for Volunteer Running Backs.

Fourth Round
Carlton Mitchell has been compared to Brandon Marshall. If comparisons were to hold true and the Dolphins landed him they would have a dominate one two punch. Great size speed and route running but inconsistent hands. Reshad Jones may not be as fast as Major Wright but has good size and ball skills. Probably a better Strong Safety but can play Free as well. Guard Mitch Petrus did 45 reps at the combine and is a mauler. Daniel Te’o Nesheim of Washington is very intriguing. At 6 foot 4 inches and 260 pounds he showcases nice speed and explosion. 47 tackles for loss and 30 Sacks in his career.

Fifth Round
At 6 foot 2 and 200 pounds Myron Lewis runs a 4.4 forty and looks intriguing as a Free Safety prospect. Great Tackler and good in coverage played Corner Back for Vanderbilt. Andrew Quarless the Tight End from Penn State had a solid season is good solid Tight End prospect. Lonyae Miller is very intriguing at 6 foot 1 and 220 pounds runs a 4.43 forty. He played behind behind Ryan Matthews which does not make him a bad back. 5.5 yards a carry during his career looked good during the Senior Bowl. Wide Receiver Mike Williams drops because of some character concerns and has good not great speed. But at 6 foot 2 and 220 pounds looks the part of a possession receiver with nice hands and good route running. Two time All Pac 10 Guard Shawn Lauvao is a dependable player and actually played a little Offensive Tackle.

Sixth and Seventh Round
CB-Ben Burney-Colorado-5/11-202-4.42
WR-Marcus Easley-Connecticut-6/3-210-4.39
RB-Deji Karim-Southern Illinois-5/9-209-4.40
WR-Scott Long-Louisville-6/2-216-4.46

I see we're in agreement with a few of the picks. Great mock!

I don't see Deji Karim lasting until the 6th round though.

PJ put Mike Williams in his mock draft and I think he could be in play for Miami in the later rounds. He's a 1st round talent.

I am a big Daniel Te'o Nesheim fan and I would love to see him taken in the 4th round because I don't see him getting pass the 4th round. Size & production make him a prime regime prototype player at OLB.

I like the sam shields pick. I think he can become a good pro, and you'll have a good return man right off the bat.
