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! Pick Position               Selection 1 Kansas City  OT     Luke Joeckel, Texas A&M 2 Jacksonville  OLB      Dion Jordan, Oregon 3 Oakland       QB      Geno Smith, W.Va 4 Philadelphia  OT        Eric Fisher, Central Michigan 5 Detroit        CB        Dee Milliner, ‘Bama 6 Cleveland     DE        Ziggy Ansah, BYU 7 Arizona       OT        Lane Johnson, Oklahoma 8 Buffalo         QB         Matt Barkely, USC 9 NYJ              FS         Kenny Vaccaro, Texas 10 Tennessee    OG         Chance Warmack, ‘Bama 11 San Diego    OT         DJ Fluker, ‘Bama 12 Miami           WR          Tavon Austin, W.Va 13 NYJ           DE/OLB     Keke Mingo, LSU 14 Carolina         DT         Shariff Floyd, Florida 15 New Orleans OLB       Jarvis Jones, Georgia 16 St. Louis         OG         Jon Cooper, UNC 17   Pittsburgh    DE          Bjoren Werner, FSU 18 Dallas            DT          Star Lotulelei, Utah 19 NYG              TE           Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame 20 Chicago          OT          Menelik Watson, FSU 21 Cincinnati     WR         Cordarrelle Patterson, Tenn. 22 St. Louis         WR         DeAndre Hopkins, Clemson 23 Minnesota     WR         Keenan Allen, California 24 Indianapolis    CB         Xavier Rhodes, FSU 25 Minnesota      DT        Sheldon Richardson, Missouri 26 Green Bay       RB         Eddie Lacy, ‘Bama 27 Houston          QB        Ryan Nassib, Syracuse 28 Denver            CB         Dez Trufant, Wash. 29 New England   WR        Justin Hunter, Tenn. 30 Atlanta             CB         DJ Hayden, Houston 31 San Francisco DE         Datone Jones, UCLA 32 Baltimore         LB          Arthur Brown, Kansas St The Dolphins recent rumblings sending Bess to Cleveland lead to the selection of WR/RB/KR/PR Tavon Austin. 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.
