The Miami Dolphins should be able to fill a lot of needs in the 2014 draft. Here is my projection.
With the 19th pick in the 1st round, the Miami Dolphins select:
C.J. Mosley, Alabama, Middle Linebacker
I believe the Miami Dolphins will have an elite defense in 2014, but it cannot happen without All Pro production from the middle linebacker. Miami’s offensive line has gotten all of the headlines, but the linebackers were the biggest disappointment in 2013, and this man could turn the unit around.
With the 18th pick in the 2nd round (50th overall) the Miami Dolphins select:
Seantrel Hendersen, Offensive Tackle, Miami
Pencil him in at right tackle and move Dallas Thomas to right guard. An underperformer in college, the 6’7″, 330 pounder could become a dominant force. Thanks to the Branden Albert and Shelley Smith signings, the Dolphins are able to take the best available lineman in round two and call it a day. It is possible somebody better could slide to this spot, possibly Cyrus Kouandjio.
With the 17th pick in the 3rd round (81st overall) the Miami Dolphins select:
Brandon Coleman, Wide Receiver, Rutgers
At 6’6″ and 225 pounds and with a better timed 40 than first round prospect Kelvin Benjamin, the Dolphins secure themselves a big target in the passing game.
