  Thursday April 25th, 109 days and 11 picks until the Dolphins make the 12th selection of the NFL draft. While mock draft season is sure to get underway shortly, with the shrine bowl, senior bowl and combine still far away a lot of draft speculation is still premature. The Dolphins have needs at pass rusher, wide receiver, seem tight end, cornerback and along the offensive line which leave many doors open for this year’s first round draft pick. With the events preceding the draft just around the corner here are a couple of names Dolphins fans might want to monitor. Chance Warmack, OG, Alabama After a stellar national championship game, Warmack has established himself as a special prospect with the chance at being a very good guard in the NFL. Warmack would provide the offensive line a huge boost but most believe Miami wouldn’t spend a 1st round pick on a guard. DeMarcus Milliner, CB, Alabama Could replace Smith or simply provide a major boost at corner, Milliner reminds me of Leon Hall and looks like a legit NFL corner. Milliner will probably be off the board however when Miami drafts. Bjoern Werner, DE/OLB, Florida State Damontre Moore, DE/OLB, Texas A&M Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon Barkevious Mingo, DE/OLB, LSU The Dolphins need help rushing the QB, playing Brady twice a year as well as many other top QB’s around the league a strong pass rush could make life easier on the Dolphins secondary. Mingo and Jordan might be the most realistic names on the list of pass rushers. Tyler Eifert, TE, Notre Dame 12 is probably too high for the Dolphins and they might not address this position in the draft after taking Egnew and Clay in previous years but a seem TE is exactly the help Ryan Tannehill could use. Eric Fisher, OT, Central Michigan Should Jake Long not be resigned the Dolphins might look at Fisher but like with Warmack an offensive line would still be a shocking selection Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan See Fisher   Seeing as every Dolphins fan and their brother wants help at WR here is a list of the most impressive some the group this year. Keenan Allen – probably not what I would want for the Dolphins Justin Hunter Terrance Williams Tavon Austin – might be a bit too much praise but has some Harvin in him Cordarrelle Patterson Robert Woods Stedman Bailey – excellent route runner Also note, some exciting news, Eric Galko a very intelligent draft junky and director of Optimum Scouting will be headed to the East-West Shrine game as well as Senior Bowl. Eric will have coverage as well as actual game day coverage. Be sure to follow Eric and his sight as he will have his eyes out on some of the potential Dolphins targets.
