Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Roundup 3.0
Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Miami Dolphins from several prominent sites and draft analysts.
For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Miami Dolphins, check out our Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database.
The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Dolphins:
CBS Sports - Chris Trapasso (1/20)
26. Darian Kinnard, OT, Kentucky
Kinnard is a wide, high-energy blocker who'd help the Dolphins get more physical up front.
ESPN - Mel Kiper (1/19)
26. Jahan Dotson, WR, Penn State
Miami has used significant assets to build its offense around quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, but not every move has worked out, particularly along the offensive line. They've used three top-50 picks on the O-line in the past two drafts, and none of the three -- Austin Jackson, Liam Eichenberg and Robert Hunt -- is a surefire above-average starter. With Trevor Penning off the board in the previous pick, though, I don't have another lineman with a Round 1 grade. So let's address another spot to help Tagovailoa with this pick, which comes from the 49ers' trade up in last year's draft.
Dotson is a speedster who had 91 catches for 1,182 yards and 12 scores in 2021. Jaylen Waddle caught 104 passes as a rookie, but the best way to help Tagovailoa is to get him another pass-catcher who can make plays after the catch. Dotson is explosive with the ball in his hands and has the versatility to line up all over the field.
The Athletic - Dane Brugler (1/19)
26. Jermaine Johnson, EDGE, Florida State
The Dolphins drafted an edge rusher in the first round last year but could do it again if they lose Emmanuel Ogbah to free agency. Johnson has the length, agility and violent hands to be disruptive as both a pass rusher and run defender.
PFF - Austin Gayle (1/17)
26. Trevor Penning, OT, Northern Iowa
Trevor Penning is currently PFF's No. 24 overall player and No. 4 offensive tackle in the 2022 NFL Draft. The former Northern Iowa offensive lineman is a freaky athlete for his size who will have an opportunity to elevate his stock into the top 20 with a strong outing at the Senior Bowl in early February. He earned a 94.2 overall grade and 97.2 run-blocking grade in 2021.
Baltimore Sun - C.J. Doon (1/14)
22. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
The Dolphins need to upgrade their offensive line, but it doesn't make much sense to pick one here considering the options. The 6-3, 225-pound Burks is a monster in the open field, averaging 8.6 yards after the catch since 2020, according to PFF. With receiver Will Fuller V and tight end Mike Gesicki hitting free agency, the Dolphins need pass-catchers to pair with young star Jaylen Waddle.
Athlon Sports - Bryan Fischer (1/13)
23. Travon Walker, EDGE, Georgia
Lots of folks tuning into see the Bulldogs' top-notch defense this season were drawn to the play of Walker, who has every physical tool imaginable and incredible twitch.
San Diego Union Tribune - Eddie Brown (1/13)
23. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M
Offensive line has been a disaster for the Dolphins this season and I expect them to address it in the draft and free agency, where they will have a projected NFL-high $77.1 million. The former five-star recruit can play either guard or tackle at a high level -- Green made starts at every single offensive line position except center this season.
USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (1/12)
22. Kenyon Green, IOL, Texas A&M
Miami's offensive line is in such disarray that the front needs help almost everywhere. It would only be natural, then, for Miami to be drawn to Green, who started at four different positions during his first-team All-American season in 2021.
For The Win - Charles McDonald (1/12)
22. Treylon Burks, WR, Arkansas
The Dolphins have decided to stay on the Tua Train so here's a big bodied wide receiver to make plays after the catch for him.
The Draft Network - Joe Marino (1/10)
22. Tyler Linderbaum, IOL, Iowa
The Dolphins are loaded with cap space and should make a run at veteran offensive linemen in free agency, especially at tackle. The icing on the cake would be adding a center like Tyler Linderbaum to complete the overhaul.
Linderbaum is a bit undersized but it's not an issue on tape. He's extremely athletic, tenacious, and technically refined. He has plug-and-play upside and could solidify Miami's center spot for years to come.
