We're doing a mock draft on another site and I'm the Dolphins. I took Gholston #1 and Cherilus #32. What positions should I address for the rest of the draft? I was thinking Wheeler with the next pick in the 2nd round.

If you can trade down a handful of spots and get an extra pick, do it. If not, look at Chilo Rachal, Erin Henderson, James Hardy and Cliff Avril before looking at Wheeler.

Man, I hope we take Gholston and Cherilus with our actual first two picks on April 26th. :)

If you look how it played out, Otah almost fell into my lap.

Yea I saw that. Kinda disappointed you didn't trade up to get him. Could have dealt down later in the draft to make up for the pick you would have lost trading up for Otah.

Agreed. Otah would have been a great pickup, but Gosder will do just fine.

Just to update you guys....

I was off for a while so they picked for me. Gave me Wheeler with some quality guys still on the board, but I like him as a prospect. I took Brandon Flowers at the top of the 3rd. We stop after the 4th round. I'll look OG for that pick.

Here's how it went down:

1. Vernon Gholston, OLB
2a. Gosder Cherilus, RT
2b. Phillip Wheeler, ILB
3. Brandon Flowers, CB
4. Eric Young, OG

Solid overall. Would have rather gone like this:

1. Vernon Gholston, OLB
2a. Gosder Cherilus, RT
2b. Brandon Flowers, CB
3. Red Bryant, NT
4. Eric Young, OG

So really the only thing I didn't like was taking Wheeler instead of Bryant but outside of that, I think it's a very solid overall draft. Would no mind it at all.

I'd be pretty happy with that draft. I would've liked to get a quality tight end though in the 1st 4 rounds somewhere.

Bennett almost fell to me with the 57th pick. Didn't think it was important enough to trade up for, though. I also just traded JT for pick 109, mainly because I wanted to keep picking. I'm thinking Rubin, Rucker, Finley, or Quentin Demps.

Well stupid trade for JT but w/e, it's just for fun anyways. Definately target Rubin. That will make up for Red Bryant eariler and make Wheeler a better pick.

I'd say Rucker, but Rubin would also be a smart choice, especially this late in the draft.

I went Rucker, before I saw the last two posts, because they're talking about going the full 7 rounds (which ruins the point of the JT trade but oh well). These guys don't pay as much attention to the draft as the posters here, so I'm confident Rubin will be available in the 5th round.

Nice. A very quality TE who can catch and block equally well. Will be a HUGE upgrade, IMO, over David Martin. Rucker is still very underrated.

Wow....that's what I call building a foundation. Young is pretty boom/bust though.
