To further break down our rankings, we bring you our top 100 draft prospects for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins have 3 selections in the top 100 and it’s more than likely that prospects on this list will fall through the 116th pick of round 4. Hopefully this list gives you an idea of whom we see as the player with the highest-grade available at a given point in the draft. Of course our board likely differs greatly from the Dolphins official board as we can only evaluate off publicly available data including tape and workout numbers.
We conclude our google hang-out preview of the upcoming draft by looking at the defensive prospects live on the May 4th at 12 noon EST, which can also be viewed below our top 100 list.
Every franchise front office has many eyes scouring over every prospect as opinions are gathered from everyone who is organizationally involved in scouting. This includes scouts at several levels, coaches, and the general manager. Realistically, attempting to approximate a team’s draft board from the outside looking in is inaccurate by definition. However, it doesn’t mean we won’t give it our best shot. In an attempt to create a similar draft board to the one that the Miami Dolphins might have, Ian Wharton and I have combined our own grades based on Miami’s scheme fits and preferences to create a horizontal draft board.
This process aims to highlight some of the potential draft picks for the Miami Dolphins, while also displaying the complexities of arranging many opinions. Even with just two sets of eyes and preferences there can be considerable distance between evaluations. This does not mean that either is wrong or right, but opens a conversation about prospect traits as they project forward into the NFL.
