Miami Dolphins 2021 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2021 NFL draft, we will update our Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Miami Dolphins from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

For a more inclusive lists of mock drafts for the Miami Dolphins, check out our 2021 Miami Dolphins Mock Draft Database.

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

Rotoworld - Nystrom (8/21)

6. Gregory Rousseau, EDGE, Miami (FL)

Shop local! Rousseau is no finished product, and yes, he has his share of frustrating reps on tape. But how much do we really want to nitpick a 6'5/260 plus-athlete who posted 15.5/19.5 sacks/TFL in a first-year rFR starter in a major conference? Rousseau played receiver and safety in high school! Sky's the limit, with the caveat that Rousseau isn't as close to it as his gaudy first season output would suggest (his 80.7/76.2 PFF pass-rushing/overall grades were good, not elite). With Rousseau planning to declare after opting out of the 2020 season, his NFL team needs to realize he'll be further away from making an impact than most recent top-10 overall EDGE players we've seen taken, with more inherent risk. But not every draft class offers a prospect with Rousseau's combination of length, build, bend and star-level college production. Will be a fascinating eval.

9. Rashod Bateman, WR, Minnesota

Tua needs targets in the worst way. And if we know one thing about Tua, it's that he possesses all-world vision and anticipation. Receivers who create separation feast with him. Bateman may not test at the top of this class athletically, but he's one of the crop's top route runners, a technician with outstanding hands. He creates easy separation on the outside and wins at all levels of the field. He and Tua would work together.

PFF - Renner (8/19)

3. Penei Sewell, OT, Oregon

He doesn't have to play another down of college football to be the first non-quarterback taken in the 2021 NFL Draft. Last season, Sewell earned the highest grade we've ever given to a tackle, at 95.8 overall. And when the 2019 season started, he was only 18 years old -- that's how special he is as a prospect.

9. Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

Moses has the overall freaky athletic profile to excel in Brian Flores' man-heavy scheme. Whether it's as a blitzer or in man coverage, Moses has the type of explosiveness you want for the position. We just need to see him back healthy in 2020 after tearing his ACL before the 2019 season.

2020 NFL Power Rankings: Miami Dolphins

Throughout the 2020 NFL season, we will compile a consensus NFL Power Rankings that averages the rankings of all 32 NFL teams.

Here is where the Miami Dolphins rank in terms of average, best and worst in our consensus Week 1 NFL Power Rankings:

Below you will find a Week 1 roundup for the Dolphins in our consensus 2020 NFL Power Rankings.

The Athletic -- Rank: 28

They were a feisty, well-coached team at the end of last season. But the Dolphins hit fast-forward on their rebuild and made some puzzling moves in free agency. Miami has attempted to rebuild its offensive line and will start the season with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback until Tua Tagovailoa is ready to take over. Brian Flores has shown promise, but this is still a bad roster and a team with a low ceiling.

CBS Sports -- Rank: 28

How long before Tua Tagovailoa takes over for Ryan Fitzpatrick? It can't be long since he is the future. They will be young in a lot of spots.

Miami Dolphins Fantasy Football Projections

Not only do we have fantasy football projections by positions, we have team-by-team fantasy projections as well.

Here are our projections for the Miami Dolphins running backs for the 2020 NFL season:

Matt Breida119.6544.22.3945.9387.92.41122.01
Breida was the odd-man out in San Francisco's backfield down the stretch and he moves to a situation where he has a legitimate shot to lead Miami's backfield in usage and production. The former UDFA has averaged 5.0 yards per carry and 8.4 yards per reception over his first three NFL seasons. While Miami had the league's worst offensive line last year, they made numerous investments -- via the draft and free agency -- to upgrade the unit.
Jordan Howard169.7704.35.6815.4110.10.31117.38
A shoulder injury cut Howard's lone season in Philly short, but he is healthy now. While he won't make much of an impact in the passing game, Howard is an early-down complement to Breida that should also lead the team in carries and rushing touchdowns.
Lynn Bowden Jr.8.736.10.1728.12361.1234.95
Acquired from the Raiders shortly before roster cuts, Bowden Jr. was drafted in the third round by Las Vegas as a running back, but he is expected to play slot receiver for the Dolphins. Not only did he disappoint the Raiders, the 80th-overall pick in 2020, but it's unclear how long it will take him to ramp up with his new team.
Patrick Laird10.639.80.1914.3120.10.6420.97
It will take an injury to either Howard and/or Breida for Laird to become fantasy-relevant in 2020, but he offers some ability as a receiver out of the backfield (23/204/1, 8.9 Y/R in 2019).
Myles Gaskin11.644.70.264.330.10.099.58
Malcolm Perry3.9160.046.343.80.137
