The Miami Dolphins bolster their offensive line in this 7-round mock draft and find more speedy skill position talent for their offense.
The Miami Dolphins made early waves before free agency really began, elevating their defense by trading for star corner Jalen Ramsey. The duo of Ramsey and Xavien Howard will suffocate opposing receivers, and they have a stud safety in Jevon Holland. Miami also added David Long on a relatively cheap contract to shore up a pretty weak linebacker room.
Miami Dolphins Mock Draft: OL, Skill Positions Boost Offense
Now, the question for Miami is how well this unit stacks up with the best in the AFC. Their offense is a juggernaut when everything is clicking, but how do they keep it that way? This seven-round Miami Dolphins mock draft fixes a position that needs serious help, and adds more to keep this offense rolling to keep up with other AFC superpowers.
Round 2, Pick 51: Cody Mauch, OL, North Dakota State
The Miami Dolphins have to address the offensive line. Robert Hunt is a fine player at guard, but there are issues with Liam Eichenberg and Austin Jackson. Terron Armstead is getting up there in age, and Connor Williams is under contract only for 2023.
Getting a player with some guard/tackle versatility might be the way to roll. It gives the Dolphins a chance to put the entire squad through the meat grinder in the summer and come away with a best five. Cody Mauch has the athleticism and finishing skills in space. He played tackle for the Bison but got plenty of work at both guard spots and center down in Mobile. Finding his best position will be key, but he’s got some darn good football ahead of him.
Round 3, Pick 84: Devon Achane, RB, Texas A&M
Now it’s time for fun in this Miami Dolphins mock draft. Yes, the team has a full running back room with Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson leading the way. However, there’s nothing wrong with adding more speed. Devon Achane has the speed to be a game-changer on offense, and his track background echoes the explosive plays he generates. Achane has impressive balance through contact for a 185-pound player, runs impressive routes, and is reliable in the passing game. That skill set adds another dangerous element to a Mike McDaniel offense.
