I think Escobar is a legitimate second rounder. Some even like him better than Ertz.

With the personnel they sent to his Pro Day that would be a very elaborate smokescreen. Not saying it isn't possible, but I think Jacksonville's interest in Geno Smith is legitimate.

Question regarding Xavier Rhodes to Miami at #12:

Over the last couple of weeks, I've read a lot of reports claiming that the Dolphins aren't in love with Rhodes because they do not see him as a good fit in their scheme. Rhodes strength being press coverage and the Dolphins running a lot of zone...

In your explanation, you wrote that Rhodes is actually a good fit in Miami's scheme. Could you please elaborate?

Thanks,

I think the concerns with Rhodes / Miami probably stem from his ball skills and playmaking ability, or lack thereof. However, I think Rhodes has the size the Dolphins look for in a corner and he is best facing the action which is ideal for a zone scheme. Rhodes isn't afraid to hit either.

You mean Pat Sims and Vance Walker, two career backups?

He fits to a T what the Dolphins look for size-wise in cornerbacks, there's no doubt about that. Which is why I've been confused about picks like Robert Alford for Miami that you've had in previous mocks.

The only problem is, Xavier looks a little stiff in the hips which worries me if he is going to fit in our zone scheme. It seems to me that Desmond Trufant might be a better fit for Miami based on that. Wouldn't you agree, Scott?

Also, while I love Datone Jones, he isn't an ideal fit for Miami either. He seems like an ideal base 4-3 LE, and that is the position that Cam Wake currently occupies. Miami needs a legit pass-rushing RE to bookend Wake and that doesn't seem like Datone Jones. I think Tank Carradine would fit there better, seeing as how he's still available in your mock.

And I'm slightly disappointed you didn't mix it up and go Tavon for Miami at 12. Think that could be a surprise pick. Thoughts?

I'm just underwhelmed by Minter, I think in that scenario the Ravens should take Brown who has the ability to be a true 3 down linebacker which is what they really need.

The Bengals were much better on D than on O and aren't losing any key guys on the defensive side of the ball. I'd be shocked if they spent their firs 3 picks all on defense.

Even if the needs were not arguably more on the offensive side, since the coordinators have such a big say in the draft plan, they often seem to try to split it pretty evenly. For example, I believe in the last draft the Bengals went D-O-D-O-D-O-D-O-D-O. Literally alternating every pick, 5 on each side of the ball.

I think they will end up doing it similarly this year with 2 picks on O and 2 picks on D in the first 3 rounds.
