The All-Speed Dolphins Mock Draft

7 Mar

Here it is, a complete turbo-injection for the Dolphins. This is based on current projections.

1 Torrey Smith, WR Maryland (after a trade down to add a 2nd) – A coveted deep threat to go opposite The Beast and Bess. Smith ran a 4.43 at Lucas Oil, but was originally clocked as a 4.37.

2 Colin Kaepernick QB Nevada – This long-strider ran a 4.55 in Indy, and has a cannon arm. Future workouts could propel him higher.

3 Dontay Moch DE/OLB Nevada – With freakish speed off the edge, Moch ran a 4.44 at about 250lbs. Could form an insane pass rushing tandem with Cam Wake.

4 Rob Housler, TE, FAU – Caught a ton of balls in college. Added a bushel of bulk and still ran a 4.55 at the combine. Housler is a very intriguing player.

5 Mario Fannin, RB, Auburn – Lost in the shuffle at Auburn, Fannin still graduated with the school record for RB receptions and receiving yards. At 5’11”, 231lbs, Fannin runs an absurd 4.38 40. A walking freak show.

6 Da’Rel Scott, RB, Maryland – Fastest offensive player at the combine (4.33), he projects as a third down, Sproles type. Scott returned kicks as a frosh at Maryland, and would be called upon to help revamp our return game.

7 Ryan Bartholomew, OG/C, Syracuse – One of only two offensive linemen to run under 5.0, Bartholomew also was one of the strongest kids at the combine. Though short, we like him as a guard with great pulling potential.

7 Ricardo Lockette, WR, Fort Valley State – This small school prospect is 6’1″, 211lbs, and ran a 4.37. Ricardo is a track star with great kick returner potential right off the bat.

Not bad. It would certainly boost our team speed anyway. Was there a franchise in the NFL with fewer big plays last season? Studies show those type of plays tend to happen when your players can outrun the other guys.

And that’s one to grow on.

    Locker was fastest QB, not Kaepernick.

      Tyrod Taylor (VT) was the fastest QB, not Locker. My mock picks aren’t always the absolute fastest at their positions. They’re guys I think can ball a little bit as well.

      Thanks for your comment, Kenny.

    Any “mock draft” that consist of specific trades is pointless. The chances of you being right about a trade and the exact number is beyond low. Making up mock drafts alone are a crap shoot without including trades. If your going to do a mock draft for everyone to read, do us a favor and make one with the current allotted slot the fins pick in. Other wise put “the .5% chance of happening mock draft” cuz that’s all this is.

      Sorry if you were offended. The Dolphins have made trades during the draft three years straight. Thought since I was making a completely hypothetical guess at draft weekend, I could include one.

      Let’s yank Kaepernick, and add signing Vince Young if/when he’s released. About a 0.5% chance of that though too.

      Thanks for stopping by The Bottlenose.

        Well then you were (hypothetically) totally out of line for (hypothetically) writing a (hypothetical) mock draft on a (hypothetical) blog.

        Obviously (and hypothetically) you didn’t think this through because you (hypothetically) would have seen that people would have been (hypothetically) offended by your egregious use of hypothesis!!!!

        j/k (if you couldn’t tell). Nice write up.

        But how do I know you aren’t only hypothetically joking?
