I’ll just cut right to chase, the Miami Dolphins do not get Tua in this mock. For the record, I am a Tua guy, I would be not happy if this mock turns out to be real, but it is very possibile something like this could go down. I have the Dolphins staying put at #5 and missing out not only on Tua, but Justin Herbert as well, which would be a disappointment. Not to knack on Simmons, I think Simmons is going to be a special player, I am just obsessed with the Dolphins finding a franchise QB.
From there, we trade down with Jacksonville, (I didn’t spend 1 second thinking about the terms of the trade, I don’t know, use your imagination…. this is just a fake mock draft) from 18 to 20 and select A.J. Epenesa (tremendous value pick and fills a huge need in my opinion). We then sit tight at 26 and select Josh Jones from Houston. Overall, I think this would be a good first round for us, we address 2 major needs with potential day 1 starters and get a potential superstar in Simmons. However, QB is king and I just think if we fail to address that position, how much better did we really get? Anyways, I know we all love mock drafts, so check it out and please feel free to tell me what you think. Thanks for reading.
