Our last NFL Mock Draft Roundup featured a heavy dose of Vernon Hargreaves III to the Miami Dolphins in three of the 10 mock drafts.

Today, we’re pulling 13 mocks, two local and 11 national.

William Jackson III, DB Houston

“The Dolphins need a cornerback and they will several options here. Jackson had a dominant season at Houston and looks like a starting NFL cornerback.” – Andrew Abramson, Palm Beach Post

Vernon Hargreaves III, DB Florida

“The Dolphins need to find a starting cornerback to put opposite Byron Maxwell and Hargreaves III is the most polished option in this draft class. Hargreaves has good size (5-foot-10), long arms, and possesses impressive ball skills (10 interceptions in three seasons).”  – Omar Kelly, Sun Sentinel

Eli Apple, DB Ohio State

“The guy Miami would love is Ezekiel Elliott, but moving up for him would be extremely hard if he’s coveted by Dallas. Still, Apple’s an opportunistic pick, a pro-ready cornerback on a defense desperate for one, after starting for two years on an Ohio State defense that prepares its players so well for the NFL. Remember one thing, though, about the Dolphins: Mike Tannenbaum always is ready to move on draft day, so I don’t think it’s impossible that he could find a way to move up for Elliott, if Dallas passes on him.” – Peter King, The MMQB

Shaq Lawson, DE Clemson

“Hargreaves could be another option here, but I went with Lawson, who led the FBS last season with 25.5 tackles for loss, playing with a good mixture of relentlessness, technique and discipline. He does his best work against the run and would be a perfect fit for Miami’s 4-3 scheme.” – Todd McShay, ESPN

Darron Lee, LB Ohio State

“McShay will give me grief for taking Lee this high, but I like his upside and think he fits in early on as an outside linebacker who can get into gaps as a blitzer, cover in space and be a disruptive force on the defensive side of the ball. There are going to be growing pains, but I’m betting on Lee.” – Mel Kiper Jr., ESPN

William Jackson III, DB Houston

“He is a tall corner who can play safety if needed. The Dolphins need help at corner in the worst way.” – Pete Prisco, CBS Sports

Ezekiel Elliott, RB Ohio State

“This is the dream scenario for the Dolphins.” – Daniel Jeremiah, NFL Network

Ezekiel Elliot, RB Ohio State

“Elliott is the type of running back who can immediately take pressure off of quarterback Ryan Tannehill. He’s one of the few backs I’ve seen in recent drafts that you feel comfortable handing the ball to, throwing the ball to and having him stay in and block (he allowed just one pressure in pass protection in 2015).” – Chris Collinsworth, Pro Football Focus

Vernon Hargreaves III, DB Florida

“The Fins would probably love to get their flippers on Elliott after failing to secure a proven back in free agency. But Hargreaves would be a nice foil to newly acquired CB Byron Maxwell, and his quickness would serve him well in a division where Miami routinely battles quicksilver receivers, including Sammy Watkins and Julian Edelman.” – Nate Davis, USA Today

Ronnie Stanley, OT Notre Dame

“It’s hard to see Stanley dropping this far, but that’s what happens when a mock draft doesn’t have trades. This pick is purely a best-player-available scenario for Miami. Picking him could push Ja’Wuan James to guard, or give the team an eventual replacement for veteran Branden Albert. – Dan Kadar, SB Nation

William Jackson III, DB Houston

“The Dolphins were heavily rumored to be interested in cornerbacks in the last draft. This year they get their outside starter to replace Brent Grimes and pair with Byron Maxwell.” – Matt Miller, Bleacher Report

Eli Apple, DB Ohio State

“The Dolphins would love to get their hands on Ezekiel Elliott, but if he’s not available and Apple, €”the 6-foot-1 press corner, is there, this could be the guy. But I repeat: Don’t be shocked if the Dolphins try to trade up for Elliott.” – Peter Schrager, Fox Sports

Jack Conklin, OT Michigan State

“May prove to be the steal of the draft” – Hub Arkush, Pro Football Weekly


This time around, cornerback William Jackson III from Houston led the way with three. Seven of the 13 mock drafts had Miami selecting a corner.
