ROTB Community Mock Draft, Pick 8: The Miami Dolphins Select...

New, comments

This pick was made by Alaskancard.

With the eighth pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins select Michael Floyd, WR, Notre Dame

I've been back and forth with this pick, but in the end, I had to take Floyd. Tannehill is way too much of a reach at 8 in my mind and who would he throw to? There is a much better crop of quarterbacks coming out next year, plus, Moore showed some flashes when given the opportunity last year. After giving away Moore's best receiving option, the Dolphins are going to need to replace him, big time. 6' 2", 220 lbs, 4.4 40 running, Michael Floyd is that big time. He would finally give the Dolphins a legit WR threat that can hold onto the ball. He's fast enough to take the top off of the defense and big enough to devastate teams in the redzone. He's drawn comparisons to our beloved Larry Fitzgerald, and with that I could end this write up and everyone would call it a good pick. So I will.


I think we have our first changeup in this mock draft. Floyd is projected to go all over the place. He is potentially dynamic, but receiver doesn't make the top three draft needs, according to one site. However, the trade to send away Brandon Marshall makes it a little more urgent, not like there is a quarterback to throw to to him or any other receiver.

However, Floyd is a talent that will be hard to pass up. The Cardinals never regret having drafted Larry Fitzgerald, so maybe it is the way to go.
