Miami Dolphins Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

Miami Dolphins Post Free Agency Seven Round Mock Draft

by April 1, 2021 0 comments

After almost reaching the playoffs for the first time since 2016, the Miami Dolphins are hungry for victory. With a young commander, Tua Tagovailoa, at the helm, surrounding support is needed more than ever. With only a few picks in the 2021 NFL Draft, value is a priority. There are only a few holes that could use filling. If the draft falls correctly, the Dolphins could very well have a roster worth making a deep playoff run.

To help with this mock draft, I used The Draft Network’s mock draft simulator.

Round 1, Pick 6: Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

After the multitude of pick trades, the Dolphins end up with the same player that they should have taken at third overall. In short, they added future draft capital at no expense. Hinted at being possibly the greatest tackle of all time, the choice was no doubt. Tagovailoa played with the best offensive line in the country at Alabama, and now he is one step closer to fulfilling a similar situation in the NFL. Moving Austin Jackson to right tackle and Robert Hunt to right or left guard may be able to fortify an amazing offensive line that lets Tagovailoa prove himself.

Round 1, Pick 18: Kwity Paye, EDGE, Michigan

After trading away Shaq Lawson, the Dolphins have a major hole at the defensive end position. Paye is an absolute weapon. Brian Flores will certainly welcome the athletic freak from Ann Arbor. The explosiveness and work ethic are just two of the qualifying factors that make Paye and the Dolphins a match made in heaven. Paye comes to the rescue and secures the playoff run that Miami is desperately chasing.

Round 2, Pick 36: Zaven Collins, LB, Tulsa

Collins is an absolute stud. The Dolphins already addressed this area with their trade with the Texans. Benardrick McKinney will be a solid fix, but the other inside linebacker spot is scarily vacant, especially with Jerome Baker having one year left on his contract. Collins has it all: tremendous size, elite coverage skills, solid tackling ability, and even some pass-rushing skills. This defense needs it all. He may not be fast nor have a great motor, but Flores will certainly give Collins his best shot at reaching his potential.

Round 2, Pick 50: Elijah Moore, WR, Ole Miss

The starting slot wide receiver position is barren. With Will Fuller and DeVante Parker on the perimeter, a solid slot weapon is needed for Tagovailoa to succeed. He had Jaylen Waddle to throw to consistently in the slot at Alabama. Moore is that perfect fit. With a 4.35-second 40-yard-dash and amazing three-cone and 20-yard-shuttle times, there is little hope that he falls to this pick. Luckily he did in this draft. Tagovailoa has zero excuses on why he cannot get to the playoffs now.

Round 3, Pick 81: Josh Myers, C, Ohio State

Matt Skura was brought in this offseason on a one-year, 1.7 million dollar contract. The duration and salary of that contract instill very little confidence that he can be the long-term answer. Myers is an amazing steal at this position. He can block tremendously well (notably better than his high-ceiling teammate, Wyatt Davis), and he is consistent on most downs. Whether it is starting day one or sitting and developing for a year, Myers will fit in perfectly and provide yet another massive upgrade for Miami. 

Round 5, Pick 156: Kellen Mond, QB, Texas A&M

It was a shock to see Mond here in the fifth round. The Dolphins brought in Jacoby Brissett on a short contract to fill Ryan Fitzpatrick’s void, but everyone knows Brissett cannot lead a franchise to ultimate success. Mond may not be that answer either, but he can play a very versatile change-of-pace role, similar to Fitzpatrick. The running ability and zip on the ball are amazing tools to work with. Under the impression that Mond will go in the third or fourth round, this pick was a can’t-miss opportunity. The interesting factor is that he has the potential to develop into a starter. A fifth-round pick may very well supplant the number five pick from a year ago if everything works well for Mond and not for Tagovailoa.

Round 7, Pick 231: Tamorrion Terry, WR, Florida State

The Dolphins already took a shot on an athletic freak a few years ago: Preston Williams. Terry is another project wide receiver with insane upside. At 6’4’’ with a 4.44-second 40-yard-dash, there is little to question when his name is on the board at this stage in the draft. Terry was the heart of the Seminoles in 2019, but injuries and irritation with the university’s handling of Covid-19 protocol led to him leaving the program mid-season and preparing for the draft. This pick has very high potential at a very low cost.
