This is by far the latest I have ever waited to produce my Mock Draft, and there are a few reasons why but the man reason it is this late is because of the success of the 2022 season.
As you know if you have been a regular here for the last 11 years, I always started talking NFL Draft and producing my early mock drafts when Miami was eliminated from the playoffs. Last season Miami finally made the playoffs for the first time since 2016, so there was no need to check out of the season early.
Now on to my mock drafts I will have a few mock draft versions up until the week of the draft when I will produce my final mock draft. I always start with multiple options for each pick and then in my final mock I target one player that fits.
Miami is down to just 4 picks in this year’s draft due to fines & trades. Miami traded or lost around 5 picks, they once had two first and two third round picks this year and then traded one first for Bradley Chubb and one third round pick for Jalen Ramsey and of course the other first round pick was taken by the NFL for the tampering charges against our Owner.
On to the Mock Draft
Miami has 4 picks in this upcoming draft (Round 2, Pick 51, Round 3, Pick 84, Round 6, Pick 197, Round 7, Pick 238)
Miami Dolphins Team Needs TE, OT, RB, IDL, CB, S, WR,
Miami will enter the 2023 NFL draft with few needs to address, O-line, TE, DT, RB & CB’s (because you can never have enough of them). Dolphins GM Chris Grier loves to draft BPA regardless of needs, so they try to address their needs before the Draft in free agency.
