If the top 3 wide receivers (Cooper|Kevin White|White) are gone, then this should get interesting. I flip-flopped between Todd Gurley and Breshnan Perriman as they are both the type of players the Dolphins need to take the next step. Perriman could step right into our dink and dunk offense and take a short pass to the house ... things we tried to do with Mike Wallace. That being said, one thing to consider is that Seattle would not be as good as they are without Marshawn Lynch. What Lynch and Gurley do is give their teams a red zone threat, and they can close out games in the 4th quarter by gutting out tough yards and preserving a lead. To me, this is a major weakness of our Dolphins and needs to be addressed. Losing games in the 4th quarter has got to be fixed. Also, let's not forget that he can return kickoffs and fill a need there as well. And he doesn't fumble.

While I am not a "trade down" kind of a person, if the top 3 receivers are gone then it would be idea for Miami to trade down a few slots and grab Perriman and recoup a 3rd round pick. At a time when a team's draft strategy is kept a secret, someone is leaking information on Gurley and everyone (including me) has bought into it. The Dolphins may be hoping that Gurley could be there at 14 and another team wanting to be the next Seattle Seahawks would offer their 1st and 3rd for our #14 pick. It is a possibility.

If one of the Big 3 wide receivers drops, then the Dolphins would take him. Miami believes that there are 19 prospects with 1st round grades, and Gurley is one of those players. Considered the best back to come out in the draft since Adrian Peterson, I don't see Miami passing on Gurley. He gives Miami that BIG back they are looking for, one that has big play ability, can catch the ball out of the backfield and is a dangerous kickoff return man. He would combine with La3/Miller to give the Dolphins an very potent combo and give them that back that can help grind the clock late in a game or gain that short yardage of top of his homerun ability. There is a durability concern, as Gurley missed 3 games due to an ankle injury in 2013 and tore his ACL in late Novemeber 2014 against Auburn. He just visited Indianapolis for a follow up visit for prospects with injuries, and his knee has progressed to the point where he is given a very good chance of being ready for Training Camp. OT/OG La'el Collins, DT Danny Shelton & CB Marcus Peters could be considered here as well.

(Trade Back) Miami gets what they want and is able to trade out of slot 14, picking up another 2nd round pick and is still able to get Perriman at 24. Breshad gives us what we're missing right now. A big physical yardage monster who boasts a ridiculous 36 inch vertical and a sub 4.3 forty time for a man of his size. He's a big play waiting to happen. He can win deep and is also capable of taking a screen pass to the house. Has some issues with concentration drops but almost every analyst I've read doesn't seem to think it's a major concern and that it can be corrected.

Perriman is a legit stretch the field pass catcher and would replace that part of the game that was lost when the Dolphins traded Mike Wallace this off-season. Perriman’s best attributes however might be just what the Dolphins want, especially under Joe Philbin. He has a very high class stature off-the-field. Probably the most impressive thing to me is that he lost star quarterback Blake Bortles this past season and he still played lights out football with a lesser talent throwing him the ball.

The loss of Brian Hartline hurts Ryan Tannehill, but adding Kenny Stills should alleviate that pain a bit. Tannehill had a coming out party in 2014 and if they want his success to continue, they’ll continue to add options. Jordan Cameron is a great addition, but he can’t be counted on to stay healthy. A healthy Jordan with Jarvis Landry, Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker could make for a deadly offense.

With his surgically-repaired knee reportedly earning positive reviews from NFL doctors during the combine re-check April 17, Gurley is likely to get a late bump up draft boards. By already investigating a trade into the top 10 for a receiver, Miami appears committed to making a big splash on draft day, similar to the aggressive move made in free agency with the signing of Ndamukong Suh.

(TRADE UP W/CHICAGO) The Dolphins need to get better at wideout after an offseason saw them finally understanding/giving up on Mike Wallace and trading for Kenny Stills. White is a game-changer worthy of a top-10 pick and moving up for him here is a bold, smart play.

There are a lot of options for the Dolphins, but no obvious blend of need and value. Of all their positions of need, Gurley probably represents the biggest gap between their option here and their second round options. If healthy, he’s an immediate game-changing weapon.

Yes, the Dolphins made a huge move in signing former Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, but they had to unload some key players to make room under the cap for him. The draft will provide them an opportunity to start plugging some of those holes, which is particularly a need at linebacker. If Gregory really falls this far after failing his Combine drug test (after reportedly failing multiple drug tests at Nebraska), he could be a tremendous value pick here for Miami.

Worst possible scenario for Miami? Not quite. Gurley is available, but this would likely cause some frowns in the "War Room". Collins is a consolation prize, a runner-up to WRs Cooper, White, and Parker, --or CB Waynes. If the board falls this way, I'd expect Tannenbaum and Co. to attempt a trade back. If that's not possible, then adding another early-round OL prospect may happen. It's not flashy, but a starting 5 of Albert/Turner (Thomas?)/Pouncey/Collins/James could be one of the best in the NFL.

Kiper advocates Central Florida receiver Breshad Perriman, on the presumption that Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes, Louisville receiver DeVante Parker and Georgia running back Todd Gurley are off the board at 14. The Dolphins have the intermediate targets in Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. Now I have the sub-4.3 speed to keep safeties honest, and Perriman is a playmaker after short catches as well. This helps my franchise QB.

The Dolphins have needs at linebacker and guard but can address both of those on Day 2 and Day 3. They also need a big-play outside receiver to pair with Kenny Stills and Jarvis Landry, and Perriman fits the bill. His 14 percent drop rate is a concern, particularly because when I studied his tape he didn't appear to be the most natural pass-catcher. But he also showed the ability to come down with really difficult catches, and he's a big-play threat with his combination of size (6-foot-2, 212 pounds) and speed (sub-4.3 40 time at his pro day).

Cortland Finnegan was cut and eventually retired after struggling as the starter opposite Brent Grimes last season. The Dolphins have used picks on Ja3/Taylor (2nd round in 2013), Will Davis (3rd round in 2013), and Walt Aikens (4th round in 2014) in recent drafts, but none of them have played much so far in their respective careers. Taylor and Davis have played 345 and 200 snaps respectively in 2 seasons in the league combined, while Aikens played 64 snaps as a rookie. With Grimes going into his age 33 season, now seems like a good time to draft another cornerback to play opposite him and eventually take over for him as the #1 guy.

They’ve been linked to Gurley in the past, but it’s become more likely that, if they can’t add a top receiver, adding a top running back is the next best option. Gurley and La3/Miller give this team one of the better running back duos in the AFC.

Blood is thicker than water. Former Iowa assistant coach, Joe Philbin, knows how well Scherff has been coached. For now, Scherff is a plug and play left guard.Punishing run blocker who generates tremendous, dominating power on the move. Tenacious and consistently aggressive. Stays upright with good knee bend as he shuffles to the edge in pass protection. Has the athleticism to mirror the pass rusher and keep himself squared up. Athletic, with quick feet. Can reach and seal off a defender in either direction. Swings his hips in to the hole and anchors his position.

The Dolphins lost Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline, and others from their receiving corp this off-season and need to badly fill those shoes. Parker is a mismatch for most corners as he does his best work while the ball is in the air, high-pointing the ball and snatching it from the defenders grasp. He's a developing route-runner and has some injury concerns (missed first 7 games of last season), but the natural talents there. If he can put it all together he could become the lead receiver for the Dolphins going forward.

This choice could be a curveball since Dennis Hickey proved to be a bit of a wild card in his first year at the helm in Miami. However, if Louisville WR DeVante Parker is still available it might be an easy decision because he would be an ideal compliment to Jarvis Landry and Kenny Stills. Last year when just about every top underclassmen wide receiver bolted for the pros Parker was one of the few who actually opted to return for his senior season. Things got off to a rough start as Parker missed the first seven games with a foot injury but he came back with a vengeance and finished the year with a flourish. Parker is big and strong with excellent hands, terrific body control and ball skills as well as sneaky vertical speed. Even though the Dolphins used their first round pick last year on a blocker there are still some DeVante Parker | Louisville Cardinals issues on the interior of the offensive line and either Brandon Scherff of Iowa or La’el Collins of L.S.U. could be the solution that they have been searching for. Michigan St. CB Trae Waynes could prove tempting as well because youngsters Will Davis and Ja3/Taylor have been disappointments thus far. Linebacker might actually be the most pressing need in Miami but the value just isn’t there at this point. Georgia RB Todd Gurley could be a darkhorse since durability is a concern with La3/Miller.

Right now it's Pro-Bowler Brent Grimes and a whole lot of uncertainty at cornerback for the Miami Dolphins. Brice McCain was brought in from Pittsburgh who should add some stability, but just having him along with thus far inconsistent third rounders Ja3/Taylor and Will Davis isn't going to be enough for them to pass on the draft's top ranked cornerback at 14. No cornerback in college football was left on an island more over the past two years than Trae Waynes; and the results were outstanding, only two touchdowns allowed. Six feet tall, 4.31 forty, Waynes is the real deal and a steal for the Dolphins at this point. - See more at: http://www.nfldraftgeek.com/2015nflmockdraft.html#sthash.glbmCrjh.dpuf

With Waynes off the board the Dolphins can go offensive line (gaurd), receiver, or take the next corner on their board. Now the Dolphins will have a major decision. Last year some thought they reached for James but he has the look of a long time plus starter at right tackle. So I think they will wait until later in the draft to draft a guard. with Parker being the best value between wide receiver and cornerback, I have them going wide receiver.

Right now, the Dolphins are counting on Louis Delmas to be ready in time for the regular season, despite tearing his ACL in Week 14 last year. Even if he stays on that timetable, his injury history—and one-year contract—makes him a short-term investment. Collins would be a long-term answer.​

The perception of “movement’’ in the pre-draft months is personified this year by Perriman, who didn’t rate consideration as a first-round prospect until he ran a pair of sub-4.3 40s at his pro day. Some still don’t see him as first-round worthy, but he’s going to go in the first round because of that speed, and the Dolphins make as much sense as anyone with Mike Wallace now in Minnesota.

The Dolphins obviously made a major splash when they signed Ndamukong Suh, but things are a bit murkier at linebacker. Dannell Ellerbe was traded to New Orleans, and Philip Wheeler was released. Koa Misi is still on board, but what the Dolphins really need to improve the second wave of their defense is a player who can not only rush the passer, but also cover screens and curl/flat stuff. Dupree hit the national map when he ran a 4.56 40 with a 1.60 10-yard split at the scouting combine—not half-bad for a 6’4”, 269-pound individual—but it's his versatility that will make him stick and stay in the NFL. Dupree has the capability to blitz off the edge on one play, and cover a slot receiver on the very next.​

The more I hear about Gurley’s recovery from five-month-old ACL surgery, the more I think he could be ready for opening day. Or at the least, be pretty much back to normal by mid-October. The surgery doesn’t worry me a bit long-term. Gurley is 20 years old and the closest thing to a dominant in-line and outside-the-tackles running back to come out in the draft in several years. There are no guarantees about any player in any year, but Gurley is going to make a bunch of yards that aren’t there for normal backs. He’s the kind of back Miami hasn’t had in a long time—even though the Dolphins had a pretty good running game last year, 12th in the league.

The signing of Greg Jennings could signal a change in direction for the Dolphins, who remain very pedestrian in the backfield with La3/Miller and Damien Williams. Gurley is a transcendent prospect, maybe the best at the position since Adrian Peterson, and he could sneak into the top 10. The former Georgia star certainly won't slide past this spot after a medical recheck of the torn ACL he suffered in November of last year came back clean.

If you haven't been checking out the NFL Draft Rumors page, there has been speculation that the Dolphins will pick Todd Gurley at No. 14. A lot of what is being discussed now is smoke, but Miami's interest in Gurley is legitimate. La3/Miller is not an every-down back, and Gurley would really provide a boost for Ryan Tannehill out of the backfield.

Taking a running back in the top half of the first round may seem strange in today's NFL, but one team we've spoken to believes Gurley is the next Jim Brown. I think you pick the next Jim Brown with a top-16 choice.

We are almost there.  5 days until the 2015 NFL Draft and teams are putting the final touches on their boards, gathering that last bit of information on prospects they have interest in.  Dotting the I and crossing the T.

 

My personal opinion is the 1st round of this draft is going to be VERY interesting, and it will begin with the 2nd pick of the draft and what the Tennessee Titans will do.  I normally don't do trades in my mock, but I went ahead with some trades this time.

 

Let's go ahead and take a look at how this could play out in my mind.

 

1) Tampa Bay - Jameis Winston, QB, Florida State - This is a very important draft for Tampa, as they continue to try to find that franchise QB.  They have worked out and spoke with both Winston and Marcus Mariotta of Oregon.  But Tampa has been locked in on Winston for a while.  Unless something extraordinary happens in the next few days, Winston will be the pick.

 

2) Philadelphia - Marcus Mariotta, QB, Oregon - Chip Kelly has shown that he wants HIS type of players in the trading off of DeSean Jackson in 2014 and LeSean McCoy in 2015.  The Eagles have not signed QB Sam Bradford to a long term contract after trading for him earlier, and Bradford thinks the Eagles are looking to trade him.  I think the 3 team trade scenario put out a few days ago happens.  Cleveland was very intrested in trading for Bradford earlier, and they get him now.  The Titans have said they are sold on Mettenberger, and we will see if they are.  In the end, this would be the best case scenario for Mariotta to have IMMEDIATE success in the NFL, as he would be in the exact same offense he was in Oregon.  I think the package that is being reported from Philadelphia, the 19th & 20th pick to go with ILB Mychal Kendricks and DT Fletcher Cox will be to enticing to turn down.

 

3) Jacksonville - Dante Fowler, OLB/DE, Florida - Jacksonville adds a dynamic piece to their defense with Fowler.  Would not be surprised if the go Leonard Williams.

 

4) Oakland - Kevin White, WR, West Virginia - Leonard Williams would be very enticing here, but the Raiders have possibly found their QB in Derrick Carr, and they look to provide him with #1 WR in White.

 

5) Washington - Leonard Williams, DT, Southern Cal - The Redskins could easily go OL here, and many have mocked OLB/DE here as the lost Brian Orakpo to free agency.  But Williams is considered the best player in this draft and is to good a value not to take here.

 

6) New York Jets - Vic Beasley, OLB/DE, Clemson -  New coach Todd Bowles is like former coach Rex Ryan, a defensive coach.  The Jets add an explosive pass rusher to an already strong defensive front.

 

7) Chicago - Amari Cooper, WR, Alabama - The Bears could go DL and Danny Shelton here, as they lost DT Stephen Paea to free agency, but the also traded WR Brandon Marshall to the Jets.  They go with the receiver that is being called the best in this draft in Cooper.

 

8) Atlanta - Shane Ray, DE/OLB, Missouri - The Falcons desperately need to create more pass rush pressure.  This very well could be Randy Gregory, the DE/OLB from Nebraska, but I think Ray will be the pick.  There are concerns about his turf toe injury, but he supposedly will be ready for the season.  Keep an eye on Georgia RB Todd Gurley here as well.

 

9) New York Giants - Brandon Schreff, OT/OG, Iowa - The Giants continue to fortify their offensive line with the rock solid, technically sound Schreff.  WR could be a possibility, as WR Victor Cruz is coming off a severe knee injury.

 

10) St. Louis - Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami - The Rams could go wide receiver here, but they let their ORT, Joseph Barksdale test free agency and OLT Jake Long was released after getting hurt once again.  2014 1st round pick Greg Robinson will move to OLT, and they plug Flowers in on the right side, as he has experience at both tackle spots.

 

11) Minnesota - Trae Waynes, CB, Michigan State - The Vikings have a crying need for a CB, and Waynes is considered by most either the 1st or 2nd best CB in this draft.  HC Mike Zimmer is a defensive coach at heart, and the Vikings just traded for WR Mike Wallace and have 2014  1st round pick Cordarrelle Patterson, who took a step back in 2014, but is still a talent. Charles Johnson is a player who the Vikings are said to be very high on also.

 

12) Cleveland - DeVante Parker, WR, Louisville - After trading for Sam Bradford, the Browns give him a TRUE #1 wide receiver by getting Parker.  Parker stock has been studily rising, and some think he could work his way into the top 10.  Danny Shelton could be a major consideration here as well.

 

13) New Orleans - Bud DuPree, DE/OLB, Kentucky - The Saints want to do a lot of work to their defensive unit, and they have 2 picks in the 1st round.  They could possibly trade up, but DuPree stock is rising and team are intrigued by this very talented, versatile prospect.

 

14)  Miami - Todd Gurley, RB, Georgia - If one of the Big 3 wide receivers drops, then the Dolphins would take him.  Miami believes that there are 19 prospects with 1st round grades, and Gurley is one of those players.  Considered the best back to come out in the draft since Adrian Peterson, I don't see Miami passing on Gurley.  He gives Miami that BIG back they are looking for, one that has big play ability, can catch the ball out of the backfield and is a dangerous kickoff return man.  He would combine with Lamar Miller to give the Dolphins an very potent combo and give them that back that can help grind the clock late in a game or gain that short yardage of top of his homerun ability.  There is a durability concern, as Gurley missed 3 games due to an ankle injury in 2013 and tore his ACL in late Novemeber 2014 against Auburn.  He just visited Indianapolis for a follow up visit for prospects with injuries, and his knee has progressed to the point where he is given a very good chance of being ready for Training Camp.  OT/OG La'el Collins, DT Danny Shelton & CB Marcus Peters could be considered here as well.

 

15) San Francisco - Erick Armstead, DT/DE, Oregon - This has been a turbulent offseason for the 49ers.  They cut DT Ray McDonald after his latest run in with the law, they LB's Patrick Willis and Chris Borland and lost CB Chris Culiver to free agency.  DE Justin Smith is seriously mulling retirement on top of everything else that has gone wrong for the 49ers.  They start the rebuilding process with Armstead.

 

16) Arizona- Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin - The Cardinals make the move up to get the 2nd best RB in this draft after the Dolphins select Todd Gurley.  While talented, Andre Ellington has been unable to stay healthy, and Gordon gives the Cardinals that back that can take pressure off the passing game and form a formidable duo with Ellington.

 

17) San Diego - D.J Humphries, OT, Florida - With Arizona trading ahead of the Chargers to take Gordon, the Chargers look to add talent to their offensive line with the talented Humphries.

 

18) Kansas City - Cameron Irving, OC, Florida State - The Chiefs could go CB here, as Sean Smith is in the last year of his contract and have a need for a CB opposite him as well and wide receiver is a big need as well.  But Kansas City lost OC Rodney Hudson in free agency to the Raiders, and take Irving the fill that void.

 

19) Tennessee - Randy Gregory, DE/OLB, Nebraska - This is the 1st of the picks from the Eagles.  The Titans need an edge rusher, and they stop drop of Gregory here.

 

20) Tennessee - Kevin Johnson, CB, Wake Forest - The add the talented Wake Forest CB to an area of need.

 

21) Cincinnati - La'el Collins, OT/OG, LSU - OLT Andrew Whitworth will be 34 this season, and Collins can play OG until time to replace Whitworth.

 

22) Pittsburgh - Byron Jones, CB, UConn - The Steelers start the rebuidling of their secondary after losing CB Ike Taylor and S Troy Polomalau.

 

23) Detroit - Danny Shelton, DT, Washington - Detroit lost Ndamankong Suh and Nick Fairley in free agency.  They recovered nicely by acquring Haloti Ngata in a trade and now have the opportunity to acquire massive Danny Shelton.  The Lions don't pass on the opportunity.

 

24) Houston - Breshard Perriman, WR, Central Florida - After trading down with the Cardinals to obtain additional picks, the Texans take a WR to help DeAndre Hopkins and replace Andre Johnson.

 

25) Carolina - Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford - The Panthers look to fortify the offensive line with Peat, as the finally get the replacement for retired OLT Jordan Gross.

 

26) Baltimore - Marcus Peters, CB, Washington - The Ravens just signed CB Jimmy Smith to a long term deal, but the corner opposite Smith, Ladarius Webb has not been able to complete a season the last 2 years.  The Ravens suffered defensively with the lack of depth at CB.  The Ravens are the type of team to take a chance on this very talented kid who was kicked off the team at Washington.  A wide receiver could be a possiblity here as well, as they lost Torrey Smith.

 

27)  Dallas - Malcolm Brown, DT, Texas - Dallas lost some key personnel off the defensive line, and while they could go CB, they add Brown to fortify their defensive line.

 

28) Denver - Jake Fisher, OT/OG, Oregon - While the Broncos did lose Terrance Knighton to free agency, they did also lose OG Orlando Franklin to San Diego.  Protecting Peyton Manning for one last run is paramount.  Fisher is very versatile, and has played both tackle spots and guard, and is a very good fit for the zone blocking scheme employed by new coach Gary Kubiak.

 

29) Indianapolis - Landon Collins, S, Alabama -  The Colts have made a lot of moves during the offseason, and address one of the biggest needs in regards to safety, as LaRon Landry was released after the season.

 

30) Green Bay - Eric Kendricks, ILB, UCLA - Green Bay released A.J Hawk during the offseason and lost Brad Jones as well, and while CB is without a doubt a position of need, and I have seen LSU CB Jalen Collins here, Ted Thompson does not impress me as the type that would take a chance this early on a kid that was a part-time starter and failed multiple drug test.

 

31) New Orleans - Nelson Agholor, WR, Southern Cal - I believe most of the Saints draft will be devoted to their horrid defense, but they did also lose WR Kenny Stills in the trade to Miami.  Agholor stock is rising, and the Saints give QB Drew Brees a weapon to replace on of the two that were lost this off season.  Maxx Williams is someone that I think the Saints could consider as well, as they did trade TE Jimmy Graham.

 

32) New England - Eddie Goldman, DT, Florida State - The Patriots let veteran DT Vince Wilfolk go during free agency to the Texans.  The Patriots look to fill that void with Goldman.
