I thought I'd share a mock from one of the better Miami Dolphins fan sites. The thing is, fan sites such as Phinphanatic, the Phinsider, and (yes) Phinfever follow our Dolphins almost religiously and we know better than the national media what the problems are. While it is hard to project trades, and I don't think mocks should do that, I will expect us to trade down to accumulate picks and to also grab a QB project. Thoughts?

Clelin Ferrell – Edge – Clemson
The Miami Dolphins do need to address the edge of their defensive front and Ferrell is one of the best in this years class. There is a better chance that Ferrell goes long before the Dolphins are on the clock as top edge rushers are hard to find. Ferrell comes from a big school and is fresh off a dominating season and a National Championship. With Miami Ferrell will be a day one starter and will allow the Dolphins to implement the style of defense that Brian Flores used in New England.
Isaiah Buggs – DT – Alabama
The Dolphins should be thrilled if the first two rounds played out like this. Buggs is a run stopping defensive lineman with the speed to get up field and collapse the pocket while shutting down the center/guard lanes for a QB escape. Buggs is well-disciplined having played under Nick Saban. Another big school product that would bolster the Dolphins defensive front immediately.
Michael Dieter – G/C – Wisconsin
Dieter has started at both the interior line positions and on both sides of the ball. The Dolphins need to improve their guard play and it is unclear if Ja’Wuan James or Josh Sitton return for 2019. Daniel Kilgore is also a question mark which means that Dieter could become a day one starter for Miami at center or guard.
