The Dolphins didn't at least try to tank roster-wise in 2019 only to miss on Tua Tagovailoa in the 2020 NFL Draft. And given that Tagovailoa's hip is seemingly progressing wonderfully, it seems unlikely that they'd be able to wait until No. 5 overall to pick him. 

This mock explores a Miami trade up and how it'd create a major ripple effect in Round 1. 

Position rankings are based on our composite prospect rankings.

NFL Mock Draft
Round 1
Round 1 - Pick 1
LSU • 6'4" / 221 lbs
Projected Team
Cincinnati
PROSPECT RNK
2nd
POSITION RNK
1st
Onto the No. 2 pick.
  Mock Trade from Washington Redskins
Round 1 - Pick 2
Alabama • 6'0" / 217 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
5th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Tua boosted his stock by posting a 10-second video of himself working out. If he continues to post those, there's no way he's lasting to No. 5 overall for Miami. So the Dolphins make a move.
Round 1 - Pick 3
Ohio State • 6'5" / 264 lbs
Projected Team
Detroit
PROSPECT RNK
1st
POSITION RNK
1st
Matt Patricia considers Jeff Okudah here, but decides on Young to pair with Trey Flowers up front.
Round 1 - Pick 4
Iowa • 6'5" / 320 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Giants
PROSPECT RNK
9th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Wirfs stood in for injured teammate Alaric Jackson at left tackle in 2019 but was rock solid at right tackle for most of his Iowa career. Plug-and-play stud for Daniel Jones.
  Mock Trade from Miami Dolphins
Round 1 - Pick 5
Ohio State • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
4th
POSITION RNK
1st
This represents the best-case-scenario for Washington. Move back, get extra (very much needed) picks and still get a lockdown cornerback to bolster the secondary. Washington gets Miami's third first-round pick (No. 26 overall) next year's first, plus the Dolphins' pick early in Round 3 (No. 70 overall) and a sixth-rounder (No. 186 overall) in the trade back.
Round 1 - Pick 6
Oregon • 6'6" / 236 lbs
Projected Team
L.A. Chargers
PROSPECT RNK
20th
POSITION RNK
4th
If the Chargers don't sign recently released Cam Newton, Herbert would be the ideal selection for Los Angeles here.
Round 1 - Pick 7
Clemson • 6'4" / 238 lbs
Projected Team
Carolina
PROSPECT RNK
3rd
POSITION RNK
1st
I keep going back to this pick because it's just so perfect. Simmons is the ideal replacement for Luke Kuechly in Carolina.
Round 1 - Pick 8
Alabama • 6'4" / 312 lbs
Projected Team
Arizona
PROSPECT RNK
6th
POSITION RNK
1st
Now with DeAndre Hopkins in the mix, and D.J. Humphries extended, the Cardinals go with the best plug-and-play right tackle in this class.
Round 1 - Pick 9
Utah State • 6'4" / 219 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
19th
POSITION RNK
3rd
I think the Jaguars love Gardner Minshew, but with GM David Caldwell and head coach Doug Marrone barely hanging onto their jobs, they need to go quarterback early.
Round 1 - Pick 10
Georgia • 6'5" / 315 lbs
Projected Team
Cleveland
PROSPECT RNK
15th
POSITION RNK
4th
This should be an easy pick for the Browns, as Thomas is a long, SEC-tested stud on the left side who's a bulldozer in the run game and improved as a pass blocker in 2019.
Round 1 - Pick 11
Alabama • 6'1" / 193 lbs
Projected Team
N.Y. Jets
PROSPECT RNK
12th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Jets, it's time to get Sam Darnold some legitimate weapons. Another easy selection inside the top half of the first round.
Round 1 - Pick 12
Alabama • 6'0" / 190 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
14th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Stylistically on the field, Ruggs is more similar to Antonio Brown than CeeDee Lamb, so the Raiders go in that direction.
Round 1 - Pick 13
Louisville • 6'7" / 364 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
11th
POSITION RNK
3rd
Man, would I love this to be CeeDee Lamb, but Kyle Shanahan knows he can scheme production from his receivers and tight ends. Joe Staley turns 36 in August.
Round 1 - Pick 14
Houston • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Tampa Bay
PROSPECT RNK
32nd
POSITION RNK
5th
This is probably the highest you'll see Jones, but the Buccaneers have to take the offensive line seriously with Tom Brady in the mix.
Round 1 - Pick 15
Oklahoma • 6'2" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Denver
PROSPECT RNK
8th
POSITION RNK
1st
Lamb and Courtland Sutton for Drew Lock? Yes sir.
Round 1 - Pick 16
Florida • 6'1" / 204 lbs
Projected Team
Atlanta
PROSPECT RNK
18th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Falcons now have a glaring need at cornerback on their roster, and Henderson has the ability to step into that top role instantly.
Round 1 - Pick 17
LSU • 6'3" / 254 lbs
Projected Team
Dallas
PROSPECT RNK
13th
POSITION RNK
2nd
The Cowboys were ravaged on defense in free agency, so they pick Chaisson to replace the departed Robert Quinn.
Round 1 - Pick 18
Alabama • 6'0" / 201 lbs
Projected Team
Miami
PROSPECT RNK
17th
POSITION RNK
1st
McKinney is a do-everything safety who flashes against the run and deep in coverage.
Round 1 - Pick 19
LSU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
Las Vegas
PROSPECT RNK
22nd
POSITION RNK
3rd
Even with Eli Apple signed, the Raiders could use more young, talented cornerbacks on the roster. Fulton is one of the cleanest prospects in this class.
Round 1 - Pick 20
Auburn • 6'5" / 318 lbs
Projected Team
Jacksonville
PROSPECT RNK
7th
POSITION RNK
1st
The Jaguars are more than happy to end Brown's slide and pair him with former first-round defenders up front, Taven Bryan and Josh Allen.
Round 1 - Pick 21
LSU • 6'1" / 202 lbs
Projected Team
Philadelphia
PROSPECT RNK
31st
POSITION RNK
5th
Jefferson would give the Eagles a speedy, big slot receiver they desperately need.
Round 1 - Pick 22
South Carolina • 6'5" / 319 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
10th
POSITION RNK
2nd
Kinlaw is a the best pass-rushing interior defensive lineman in the class and helps the Vikings to reload on defense.
Round 1 - Pick 23
TCU • 5'11" / 197 lbs
Projected Team
New England
PROSPECT RNK
45th
POSITION RNK
9th
Reagor is built like a running back but has elite downfield speed and is smooth after the catch.
Round 1 - Pick 24
Alabama • 6'1" / 203 lbs
Projected Team
New Orleans
PROSPECT RNK
28th
POSITION RNK
4th
Diggs is flying under the radar but has lockdown press man cornerback abilities given his length and physicality at the line.
Round 1 - Pick 25
Baylor • 6'3" / 207 lbs
Projected Team
Minnesota
PROSPECT RNK
49th
POSITION RNK
7th
With Mims, the Vikings get the fastest-rising receiver in this class with sub-4.4 speed and a rebounder's mentality in jump-ball situations.
  Mock Trade from Miami Dolphins
Round 1 - Pick 26
Boise State • 6'6" / 311 lbs
Projected Team
Washington
PROSPECT RNK
49th
POSITION RNK
7th
In moving back from No. 2 to No. 5, the Redskins pass on Tagovailoa and Young but land Okudah and a future franchise offensive tackle in Cleveland, who has the athleticism to be that type of player.
Round 1 - Pick 27
Penn State • 6'5" / 265 lbs
Projected Team
Seattle
PROSPECT RNK
21st
POSITION RNK
4th
Just because L.J. Collier had a disastrous rookie season, that doesn't mean the Seahawks should shy away from doing defensive line in Round 1, especially if they can't re-sign Jadeveon Clowney.
Round 1 - Pick 28
Oklahoma • 6'2" / 241 lbs
Projected Team
Baltimore
PROSPECT RNK
25th
POSITION RNK
2nd
With a brick wall defensive line in front of him, Murray's blitz and spy specialties will be most accentuated in Baltimore.
Round 1 - Pick 29
Iowa • 6'6" / 280 lbs
Projected Team
Tennessee
PROSPECT RNK
16th
POSITION RNK
3rd
The Titans could use some edge-rush help, and with Jurrell Casey gone, the interior of the defensive line needs more bolstering. Epenesa can play inside and out.
Round 1 - Pick 30
Arizona State • 6'0" / 200 lbs
Projected Team
Green Bay
PROSPECT RNK
38th
POSITION RNK
7th
The Packers round out their receiving room with the explosive Aiyuk, who has a giant catch radius and flies after the catch.
Round 1 - Pick 31
TCU • 6'3" / 290 lbs
Projected Team
San Francisco
PROSPECT RNK
29th
POSITION RNK
4th
Blackock instantly fills the void left by the trade of DeForest Buckner. He's an dynamic athlete who can really penetrate the backfield.
Round 1 - Pick 32
LSU • 6'0" / 232 lbs
Projected Team
Kansas City
PROSPECT RNK
34th
POSITION RNK
3rd
There isn't loads of athleticism in the Chiefs linebacker group. With Queen falling this far, Kansas City gets great value on the twitchy linebacker.
