Bobby's Dolphins Mock Draft 4.0 (Miami moves up for a Quarterback!)



We are now 10 days away from the NFL draft and the smoke screens seem to be clearing up, teams are starting to show their cards on who’ll they will target in round one and the Dolphins may have revealed their hand as well.

My mock drafts are usually done per team reports or rumors and team needs, as well as where players are ranked on my personal big board.

Two mock drafts ago, based off multiple reports – I projected Miami trading up to grab Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield. One of those reports were from Tony Pauline, one of the top guys in the business on breaking draft news and leaking what teams will do – he stated that the Colt’s will look to trade down from the 6th overall pick and Miami was one of the teams talking to them, Miami’s intention with the 6th pick was not to take a linebacker or safety but a quarterback and he named Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen as Miami’s primary targets.

Another interesting tidbit he reported was the Dolphins preferred choice was not Baker Mayfield but actually Josh Rosen. Recently Pauline and others have reported the Jets will most likely take Baker Mayfield at the 3rd pick and expect Rosen to fall. In my last mock draft, based off the Mayfield to the Jets report – I had Miami trade down and take Boise State linebacker Leighton Vander Esch (who I think is the real deal at linebacker).

Now, the trade up report has come back up and Pauline is the guy again reporting that Miami is talking to the Colts about moving up and Josh Rosen being the target. So when there is smoke there’s got to be fire, in this mock – Dolphins trade up with the Colts to get their quarterback of the future and with their limited remaining picks try to fill their remaining needs.


(Of course as news break and trades, mock drafts like NCAA March Madness Brackets bust! So expect my final mock draft before Draft Day.)

  1. I'm not too crazy about the Hurst or Warner selection. If Andrews is there at 42, I would rather have him. And in the 4th round, makes more sense if we can get Mason Cole if he is there. Someone that Rosen can get comfortable with.

    1. Hurst is a more complete tight end compared to Andrews (who I like). Hurst can block plus be a top receiving tight end as well, where Andrews can only offer you a receiving threat, he really can't offer you anything as a blocker. For Warner, Dolphins need a linebacker who can cover receivers, backs, and tight ends... last year proved Miami doesn't have that guy on the team and they didn't sign anyone who can do that in free agency so after taking Rosen in round 1 and the tight end in the 2nd, they take Warner who can be a day 1 starter with McMillan and Kiko.
