ESPN Mock Draft: Dolphins Pick Justin Gilbert

ESPN

Mel Kiper and Todd McShay play GM for all 32 NFL teams, alternating picks for the first three rounds of the 2014 NFL draft. Here were the Dolphins’ picks:

19. Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State

Analysis: It’s hard not to draft an offensive lineman here, but I just can’t justify taking any of the O-linemen currently available. Gilbert also fills a need and will bring playmaking ability to the defense, and I have him ranked No. 18 on my board, so he’s a solid value.

50. Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

Analysis: The value at offensive tackle simply wasn’t there in Round 1 at No. 19, but to get Kouandjio this late is hard to pass up, given the need. This is a player we really thought could be a top-10 pick 10 months ago, and he is still only 20. If he’s healthy, he’s could be a major steal.

81. Allen Robinson, WR, Penn State

Analysis: This makes three receivers in a row for me. Part of this is me just getting them off the board to catch up with Kiper, but this addresses a need position, as well, and Robinson has good size.
