My top 5 draft picks for 2015

As we fast approach the NFL draft, many different pundits have different takes on what Miami would look at.  I am no different and would like to share my top 5 picks for Miami at 14.

1.  DeVante Parker-  It seems like it will be a pipe dream at this point.  Parker has been sky rocketing up draft boards and could go as high as 7-12 picks.  Miami, being at 14, would have to trade up if they truly love Parker.  According to many Dolphins writers, that seems to be the case.  However, trading up isn't really in the cards unless they offer up players with a swap of firsts. 

2.  Todd Gurley-  Gurley was one of the top prospects in this draft prior to his ACL tear in November.  He seems to be recovering well and should be ready for training camp.  Gurley is the power back that Miami is searching for.  The team struggles on third downs and short distances.  It seems Lazor has Tannehill passing on those situations due to lack of trust with the interior OL and the running backs size.  Gurley would fill a huge need and allow Miami to run the ball more.

3.  La'el Collins- Speaking of interior OL, La'el Collins would fill an immediate need at OG.  He played LT in college but could make the switch.  The dude is a mauler and will allow better protection for Tannehill, and give the running game a signifigant boost.  He could also be a plug and play if Albert is not ready for the first couple weeks of the season (even though Albert is working out with the team as we speak).

4.  Marcus Peters- I don't agree with most when putting Trae Waynes at the head of this class.  Marcus Peters is the most complete CB in this draft.  He has the size and physicallity that Miami sorely needs.  Granted, Miami does have depth at corner (Taylor, McCain, Davis, who could start opposite Grimes), but it seems like the franchise isn't sold on them.  Peters does have character concerns (Philbin hates problem characters), but this guy is the real deal.  Philbin may not even be here next year.

5.  Bershad Perriman-  Perriman has also shot up draft boards with great workouts and pro day.  He has the size and speed to help the offense and can be a plug and play now.  Granted I am not completely sold on him, but WR is the biggest need in this draft.  They need to land one but may reach.  Over time, Perriman could be what we all wanted Wallace to be.  It still depends on if the QB can hit the long ball in stride
