    Draft season is upon us, and things are heating up with the big night just three weeks away. Since my last mock, Kyler Murray has risen to the consensus No. 1 overall selection, blue-chip college 'ballers such as Derrick Brown, Albert Okwuegbunam, and Raekwon Davis have pulled out of the draft, and many teams have retooled via free agency. The end result is a much (much) different looking projection.

    It's been four months in the making, but here it is: V2, complete with three rounds. The next and final edition will come draft night, April 25th. It will include three mock rounds, NFL-readiness/potential grades and comparisons for all 1st round draftees, as well as projections for every Miami selection.

    You can find the current projection attached to this post in PDF format.

    Note: I am usually not a fan of projecting trades; it only obscures the projection by creating more potentialities. However, as of the time of this writing, it is becoming increasingly apparent that the top three QB's (Murray, Haskins, and Lock) will be drafted 1, 2, and 3, respectively, with the former two QB's being acquired via trade. I decided to project these trades and an additional one between Atlanta and Detroit. They are detailed here.

    Enjoy. Let me know your thoughts.

    Trade 1: New York Giants, San Francisco 49ers
    The Giants have tried to douse the flames of their interest for Dwayne Haskins with obscure media statements, mentioning that he doesn't "fit" their team, and that they aren't even "doing a lot of work on him." It's a valiant attempt at a smokescreen by Gettleman (Giants GM) and Co., but it simply isn't true. Haskins is coveted by New York, as he does in fact fit their archetype at the position; New York, rightfully so, is attempting to save the 1st-round selection it gained in the OBJ trade by avoiding a trade-up scenario. Unfortunately for them, Mike Mayock has convinced everybody and their mothers that if Haskins is available at No. 4, he'll be the pick (he wouldn't be), and as such, New York will end up selling house to land their future franchise QB. The trade makes sense for the '9ers, too, as none of the elite defensive talent (Quinnen Williams, Nick Bosa, Josh Allen, Ed Oliver) fill needs for this squad. The popular projection had been Bosa until San Francisco signed Dee Ford; now, with Ford, Solomon Thomas, Arik Armstead, and DeForest Buckner manning the defensive line, there's no reason not to move down, gather more picks, and address other areas of weakness such as WR, OL, S, CB.

    Trade 2: Washington Redskins, New York Jets
    The reason the Giants will be forced to trade to No. 2 rather than No. 3 is because the Redskins will be prepared to out-offer them for the third selection, as they, too, covet Haskins. Gettleman will likely be forced to strike a deal at No. 2, leaving the Redskins to target Drew Lock. Lock, notably, isn't just a consolation prize; he has steadily risen on most draft boards, and of late, there's been talk of him going ahead of Haskins. His phenomenal pro-day and high ceiling have many thinking that he can be the next Patrick Mahomes--or, at the very least, produce early for a franchise. If Washington misses out on Haskins, they will have to leap the Raiders (who, again, have done a nice job of convincing everyone that they are in the QB market), and the Jets happen to be the perfect trade partner. Mike Maccagnan, the Jets' GM, holds just 6 selections in this April's draft--none in the 2nd round--with needs present across the board. C, WR, TE, EDGE, DL, and CB all persist as massive voids that must be filled if they're going to compete this season. As such, I imagine they will be in a hurry to field calls on Thursday night.

    Trade 3: Atlanta Falcons, Detroit Lions
    Atlanta has shown a tremendous amount of interest in Ed Oliver throughout the pre-draft process. So much so, it would almost be a shock if they didn't make a move to land him. Oliver, who's expected to have a floor of Buffalo at No. 9, would fill a monumental need for a Falcons team that is desperate for IDL help and must find a way to electrify their pass-rush. Further, Altanta is very much in "win-now" mode, though their Super Bowl window isn't as open as some may lead you to believe. In turn, this lends credence to the thought that they are prepared to go all-in on the upcoming NFL season, even if it means trading into the top 10. I don't think they will hesitate to sacrifice a large amount of capital for a potentially generational player, especially if they believe the move will push their franchise over the top and back into playoff contention. On the flipside, Detroit is rumored to be searching for a trade-down option, having expressed interest in mid-1st options such as T.J. Hockenson, Greedy Williams, and Byron Murphy. Of note, the Chargers are reportedly all over Oliver as well; be on the lookout for a bidding war between these two teams, and potentially a king's ransom for Matt Patricia and his Lions.

    I appreciate your effort. It takes a lot of effort for anyone doing something of this length. From a dolphins perspective, I would puke if it played out like that...

    Thanks, I enjoy doing it.

    Why wouldn't you approve? It's not a sexy draft for Miami by any means, but I think it lays a foundation for Flores and Grier to build on.

    I really like Jonah Williams; reminds me of Joe Thomas.

    The only thing Williams has in common with Thomas is short arms. Thomas was bigger and a much better athlete. You dont let your good right tackle go, to select a RT #13 in the draft. In your scenario we could of traded down into the 20s and selected Dillard if we want to take a RT round one. But also in your scenario I would of rather of traded down, taken Christian Wilkins and then in the 2nd round you have the best WR in the draft staring at you in Butler and we pass on him. Although I do like Winovich. I couldnt pass up Butler for him.

    Also in this scenario, we take Collier in round 3 with some better prospects on the board, like Julian Love, Justin Layne, Joe Jackson, Joejuan Williams and Deebo Samuel.

    I would argue none of those prospects are better than LJ Collier.

    I'm a fan of all 3 picks, by the way. I just get worried about the C position.

    These are fair critiques. However, I think you're selling Williams short; he has quite a bit more in common with Thomas than just his short arms. His work ethic, focus on technique over brute force, and elite lateral quickness all draw nice comparisons. Overall, I agree that he isn't as athletically gifted as Thomas, and I also don't expect him to be as good of a tackle as Thomas was. However, I also think Williams is the safest selection in the draft. While he may not end up a generational player, I feel he's going to be a steady and consistent presence for a long, long time for whoever drafts him.

    I do see your point on James; it feels like a step backwards allowing him to walk, only to select his replacement at No. 13. It isn't ideal. I wasn't a fan of letting him go in the first place, but either way, we still have a massive void to fill at RT, and Williams fits the archetype Miami is supposedly looking for. Smart, tough, reliable.

    On Butler, I haven't fully evaluated him yet. From what I've read, there's a lot of discrepancy in regard to his draft stock. Some evaluators say he's the best WR in the class, while others say he's on par with 2nd/3rd round guys like Deebo Samuel, Riley Ridley, and J.J. A-W. I need to do more research on him, but no doubt, he's an interesting prospect.

    Me too. I have a slight hunch that Miami will take Elgton Jenkins, but I'm not sold. Didn't Grier/Flores say that Kilgore is safe for 2019? I don't remember.

    If so, they probably wouldn't take a C very high. We'll see!

    He's still on the roster for now. I'd expect he would be cut by now if he wasn't safe, but they may be waiting to see how the board falls.

    Gettleman will not trade up for anything less than a generation or All-Pro caliber player.
    And NO Quarterback in this class has that highly a projected value.

    Final version coming tonight. Things are getting wild out here, I'm struggling to keep up.

    Notable Rumors/Thoughts:
    • Arizona to select Nick Bosa over Kyler Murray (I don't believe this yet)
    • Washington to trade up for Daniel Jones (I think they'll trade up, but not for Jones)
    • Oakland to make a surprise pick at No. 4 (Gary would qualify as a shock at No. 4, and he fills a massive void at EDGE that Quinnen Williams/Ed Oliver wouldn't)
    • Giants to take Daniel Jones at No. 6 (I'm leaning towards trusting this one)
    • Atlanta to jump into the top ten for Ed Oliver (I suggested this in my V2 mock--it's likely happening)
    • Denver still a mystery, but I've got a gut feeling they're getting Lock
    • Houston to trade up for a tackle (I think they'll try; Dillard and Williams have usurped Jawaan Taylor)
    • Speaking of Taylor, he's about to pull a Laremy Tunsil on draft night in the wake of numerous medical red flags
    • Devin White & Josh Allen might see slides into the low teens with QB's and OT's going earlier than expected

    This draft is easily the most difficult one I've ever tried to project. Get your popcorn ready.
