Way-too-early Miami Dolphins 2025 NFL mock draft roundup

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2025 NFL Draft, we will update our Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Miami Dolphins from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Dolphins:

Fox Sports - Rob Rang (5/3)

22. Benjamin Morrison, CB, Notre Dame

A true ballhawk with nine interceptions recorded over his first two seasons, the six-foot, 186-pound Morrison is well known for his soft hands and instincts in coverage, but scouts also like his reliability as an open-field tackler.

ESPN - Jordan Reid (5/2)

22. Colston Loveland, TE, Michigan

The Dolphins signed Jonnu Smith, but let's keep adding to the tight end group for Tua Tagovailoa. At 6-5, Loveland is a lanky coverage penetrator with the speed to find the soft spots in zone. He's capable of lining up in-line and from the slot, and his production has only continued to increase over time; he finished last season with 45 catches, 649 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns.

San Diego Union-Tribune - Eddie Brown (5/2)

22. Walter Nolen, IDL, Mississippi

The Dolphins still need to find a replacement for Christian Wilkins. Nolen was ranked as the No. 1 overall recruit by ESPN and USA Today in the 2022 recruiting class. The Texas A&M transfer began to live up to the hype in his sophomore season and if he continues to progress, he could go much higher than this.

The Athletic - Dane Brugler (4/30)

21. Shemar Turner, IDL, Texas A&M

Another ascending player from the Aggies' defensive front, Turner is one of the more disruptive defensive tackles in the SEC. He has a quick first step with the body control to work his way through gaps.

PFF - Max Chadwick (4/29)

23. Howard Cross III, IDL, Notre Dame

After losing Christian Wilkins in free agency, the Dolphins were expected to address the interior defensive line in the 2024 NFL Draft, potentially as early as the first round. Instead, Miami looked elsewhere and went the entire draft without selecting a defensive tackle. Cross is on the smaller side at 6-foot-1 and 284 pounds, and is a sixth-year senior, but he was one of the most productive interior defenders in college football this past season. His 90.8 grade in 2023 trailed only T'Vondre Sweat, Byron Murphy II and Mason Graham among FBS defensive tackles.

The 33rd Team - Marcus Mosher (4/29)

22. Abdul Carter, EDGE, Penn State

The Miami Dolphins selected Chop Robinson from Penn State in the 2024 NFL Draft, and they grab his teammate the following year. Abdul Carter plays linebacker and EDGE in Penn State's defense, but he should rush the passer even more this year. Expect to see plenty of Micah Parsons comps over the next 12 months.

USA Today - Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz (4/28)

24. Tyleik Williams, IDL, Ohio State

The 6-3, 327-pound Williams tied for the team lead in tackles for loss with 10 and can play all across the line. Miami is sure to miss Christian Wilkins after his departure to the Las Vegas Raiders, and Williams can step in to fill the void.
