Miami Dolphins Mock Draft – Fifth Round

Scouting Report. S. player. 59. Pick Analysis. Maryland Terrapins. Nick Cross. 157

In the latter part of the draft, it is all about adding depth in an attempt to solve minor issues on a roster. After taking Castro-Fields out of Penn State, the Dolphins could double-down with a defensive back out of the Big Ten East. One player who could be available to them in the fifth round is Maryland Terrapins safety Nick Cross. Going back-to-back in the secondary is not bad.

Look. Anytime you can draft a guard named Chris Paul, you have to do it. While this one is more likely to rock you like a Tulsa Golden Hurricane than sell you on State Farm’s latest offerings, Paul could be the first of three offensive line picks the Dolphins make in this draft. Tulsa is not a Power Five school, but the Golden Hurricane was briefly nationally relevant during the 2020 season.

Miami Dolphins Mock Draft – Sixth Round

C. Scouting Report. Pick Analysis. 200. player. 59. Wake Forest Demon Deacons. Zach Tom

Though Wake Forest Demon Deacons star quarterback Sam Hartman remains in Winston-Salem playing for Dave Clawson for another year, the Dolphins could land his former center in Zach Tom in the sixth round. While it would be absolutely absurd to expect he will be anything like his near-namesake Zach Thomas, the offensive interior is a position of need for the Dolphins in this NFL Draft.

Miami Dolphins Mock Draft – Seventh Round

Scouting Report. TCU Horned Frogs. 222. player. Pick Analysis. OT. Obinna Eze. 59

The last pick the Dolphins could make in the 2022 NFL Draft might be offensive tackle Obinna Eze out of TCU. Again, the Dolphins need to get better in the trenches if they want to seriously compete for division titles. However, they do not need to be reaching for players to fit their zone blocking scheme. Going guard, center and offensive tackle to close out a draft shows an effort.

With all nine selections, the Dolphins do enough to satisfy all of their needs heading into fall camp.
