Found April 25, 2013 on Phin Nation:
After about eight long months of intense draft preparations, we have all officially survived mock draft season and the real deal is finally here. As Mel Kiper has stated, “This has not been a comfortable year to do mock drafts.” Here we are less than 24 hours away from Roger Goodell announcing Kansas City is on the clock and there is still debate on who the pick should be. There are simply no ‘locks’ in this draft years draft, but with no ‘locks’ I can assure you there will be plenty of steals. We here at PhinNation encourage comments, criticisms, and questions regarding our intelligence, or furthermore our sanity at this point in time. Enjoy!

Many will consider this a luxury pick, but the combination of Mike Wallace and Tavon Austin will bring an entire new dimension to the Dolphins offense.

Dolphins looking at trading up, possibly for Joeckel?

This week, everyone seems to have a rumor about the Miami Dolphins and a theory about what they are going to do in this year’s draft. The truth is, this is exactly what the Dolphins want.  They do not want anyone to know if they are trading up, or down, or sideways (wait, what?).  They don’t want other teams to know what players they are really interested in. This time of year...

Report: Browns Among Several Teams In Trade Talks For Dolphins WR Davone Bess

Sean Jensen of the Chicago Sun-Times reports the Browns are “seriously considering“ a trade for Dolphins WR Davone Bess. Jensen adds that there are ”several teams in the mix” for Bess and with “mid-round picks” being discussed as compensation for the slot receiver. Recent reports have mentioned that the Dolphins could be getting close to reaching an agreement with...

Mike Wallace Is Jesus, Apparently

On Thursday, Nike did an official unveiling of the new Dolphins uniforms that leaked earlier in the week. The banner image for said unveiling included an image of Mike Wallace running on water. Pretty neat trick for a wide receiver, if not particularly useful in the NFL. If only the league let Miami install water hazards on their field, that could be of more use. Unless this is just...

Davone Bess On Dolphins' Trading Block For Draft

Draftinsider's Tony Pauline believes there's a "99.9 percent" chance the Dolphins will trade wide receiver Davone Bess to Cleveland for draft picks.Fantasy Spin:Bess (61 catches, 778 yards, one TD in 2012) would be more of a fantasy asset in Cleveland than he would be if he stayed in Miami. The Browns are expected to give up a mid-round draft choice as part of the trade.

Fins draft pair of cornerbacks, trade wideout Bess

BY NICK ST. DENISShortly after the Miami Dolphins picked up a cornerback, they got rid of a player who would have lined up across from him in practice.Miami selected Boise State corner Jamar Taylor with their second-round pick (54th overall) Friday night, adding a much-needed piece to its defensive backs corps.In a corresponding move, the Dolphins dealt wide receiver Davone Bess...

Dolphins rumors: Davone Bess on the trade block

It's been reported that Dolphins are looking to deal slot wide out Davone Bess. Bess has the potential to be a No. 2 and also make an impact on special teams. He has a 64% catch rate based on targets per reception, and has averaged 10.7 yards per catch since entering the league in 2008. Bess marks a solid 4.4 yards after the catch and has scored 12 times; playing his entire career...

Davone Bess reportedly on his way out of Miami

BY NICK ST. DENISThe Miami Dolphins previously claimed receiver Davone Bess was in their long-term plans. That doesn't look so good, anymore.According to Tony Pauline of, there's just a .1 percent chance (yeah, you read that right) that Bess won't be traded to the Cleveland Browns. That doesn't bode well for his long-term chances in Miami. (photo...

Dolphins “shocked” they were able to get Dion Jordan

Miami Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland told the Miami Herald that they wanted Dion Jordan more than anyone and felt like that had to trade up to land him. “He was a player that we coveted quite a bit,” Ireland said. “We was very high on our board. We think he’s an outstanding talent, has tremendous versatility. He’s a great kid. We think the world of the player and...

Ireland Discusses Jordan Move

The Dolphins caused quite a stir when they moved up from 12th to third in the first round of the draft after a trade with the Oakland Raiders and then selected Oregon defensive end/outside linebacker Dion Jordan. GM Jeff Ireland discussed the transaction and the players shortly after the pick was announced.

Grading round 1 of the Dolphins draft.

Well, it is safe to say not many of us ‘experts’ saw this coming. Jeff Ireland is wheeling and dealing like a man possessed. Jeff Ireland reportedly began the trade up process targeting a certain WR many DolFans have been drooling over. However, the Bills refused to trade their pick within their own division. Instead of standing pat, which we fans have become accustomed too,...

Dolphins draft strategy: target playmakers

When the comissioner announced that the Miami Dolphins had acquired the third overall pick, the first player that came to mind was offensive tackle Lane Johnson. I know I wasn't alone there. Based on the Dolphins draft strategy of the past, it seemed likely that the team would once again draft for need and upgrade at the most glaring hole on the roster. Instead, Jeff Ireland...

Dolphins could have several options at No. 12

Times approaching when the Miami Dolphins will be on the clock in the first round of the 2013 NFL Draft. The Dolphins hold the 12th overall pick in the draft that will begin Thursday night in New York City. Miami selected 12th overall once before, in 1992 when Don Shulas team took Georgia Tech defensive end Marco Coleman. The Dolphins own a total of 11 picks, including two each...
