2012 NFL Mock Draft: Miami Dolphins 7 Rounds

Updated: January 17, 2012

All in all, you’d have to say the Miami Dolphins had a pretty successful season, with all circumstances given.  The 6-10 record was not very indicative of what the team accomplished this year, especially down the stretch.  Matt Moore looked like a legitimate option as a starting quarterback, leading the team to a 3-2 record in the teams last 5 games.  Brandon Marshall made his first Pro Bowl in Miami, and Reggie Bush eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his career.  There is a lot of things to like on that offense going forward.

The Dolphins problem is finding a way to win more divisonal games.  Going 3-3 in the division just is not going to get you a playoff birth.  Yes, going 3-7 outside the divison is bad as well, but it starts with finding a way to beat the teams you play twice a year.  There is a reason the Patriots always win over 10 games a year and that is because they have the division’s number.  Miami’s road towards being a playoff team again starts with finding a way to have a winning record against the Bills, Patriots, and Jets on a year in and year out basis.

With that said, where will they go in the 2012 draft?  Draft a QB to groom under Moore?  Replace Hall of Famer Jason Taylor? Draft a CB? (Sportsdeck seems to think so!)

Dominator7808 put together a Dolphins mock draft for us. Check it out.

Mock below:



Reiff, Riley

OT from Iowa

As A Dolphins fan I hate the fact that we are going to take another OL in the 1st round but with RG3 and Luck off the board no dice



Foles, Nick

QB from Arizona

Miami gets there QB of the future (hopefully) he will have a year are two to develop with Matt Moore’s recent play



Fleener, Coby

TE from Stanford

Vernon Davis, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, Jimmy Graham > Anthony Fasano… Nuff Said



Hayward, Casey

CB from Vanderbilt

Dolphins secondary isnt very good outside of Davis and Smith so take the best CB avaiable



Iloka, George

S from Boise State

Yeremiah Bell isnt getting any younger so a year behind a pretty good Safety is a GREAT idea



Spence, Sean

OLB from Miami

Koa Misi looked very promising in his Rookie Season but regressed in 2011 look for the Phins to get a new starter



Owusu, Chris

WR from Stanford

Miami misses out on Stanfords best player so they’ll take one of their receivers late in the draft

    Don’t like the Foles pick at all. I hope the Phins trade down in the first round and grab a pass rushing OLB. Then pick an RT and TE in the 2nd round. I don’t think Coby Fleener will last til the 3rd round, but if he does, that’ll be a heck of a draft pick for the Phins.
