Falcons take DT Jerry, Dolphins are up

The Falcons addressed their need for a defensive tackle with Peria Jerry, putting Miami on the clock.

The Dolphins have needs at pass rusher (OLB), cornerback and wide receiver. Given the way this mock has gone, I'd be surprised by a receiver pick here. I've been told the Dolphins are not as high on Clay Matthews as many have suggested.

A. Rey Maualuga, ILB, USC
B. Clay Matthews, OLB, USC
C. Vontae Davis, CB, Illinois
D. Darius Butler, CB, Connecticut
E. Paul Kruger, DE, Utah

The Dolphins are quite high on Utah defensive end Paul Kruger and could take him here, as well. Most teams view him as a 2nd round pick.

The Dolphins took Davis... who I projected to go one pick later -- 26th overall to the Ravens in my final mock.

The Patriots are now on the clock. They, like the Dolphins, have needs at CB and OLB. Matthews and Butler are possibilities. Don't be surprised by a Beanie Wells or Donald Brown selection, either.
