I just want to officially welcome Tiffany to the staff here at Ramblin’ Fan, and I think she is going to be a great addition. If you haven’t checked out her first post yet, go ahead and give it a look. Now, on to the mocking. The Dolphins, Jags and Pats are on the clock tonight, so let’s see were they are going to go.
#15 – Miami – Da’Quan Bowers (DE, Clemson)
Bowers has been rapidly falling down draft boards since the combine because of his knee, but I think he would be a great fit here. He is a Top 5 talent, and the Dolphins are looking to upgrade their pass rush. There have been varying reports on the extent of his injury, be the upside and talent will be just too much for the Dolphins to pass up here.
#16 – Jacksonville – Ryan Kerrigan (DE, Purdue)
The Jags have developed a reputation for taking a specific kind of player over the last few years, and Kerrigan certainly fits that mold. He had an impressive career at Purdue, and he is known to be intelligent and void of any character issues. And, he is a great worker and an impressive talent. He fills a need, and he is their kind of guy.
# 17 – New England – Cameron Jordan (DE, Cal)
To be honest, it’s awfully tough to pick for the Pats in these things. I wouldn’t be surprised at all if they trade out of this pick, and if they do keep it, there is any number of ways they could go. They have worked out Jake Locker, and they could very well look at offensive line as well. Jordan is my guy here, however, because he is a good value and he fills a need. The Pats are all about value, so Jordan fits nicely.
