Last Year’s Offense Rankings: Total (21) Pass (11) Rush (30)

GM: Bob Quinn

Head Coach: Jim Caldwell

Offensive Coordinator: Jim Bob Cooter

Defensive Coordinator: Teryl Austin

Offensive Scheme: Erhardt-Perkins

Defensive Scheme: 4-3

2018 NFL Mock Draft, Lions: Bradley Chubb, DE, NC State

The Lions had the worst linebacker core in the league last year, and addressed it in last year’s draft by taking a linebacker in the first and fourth rounds. They still need to add young talent to their defensive line, especially pass rushers on the outside.

 

2018 NFL Mock Draft - Miami Dolphins

22. Miami Dolphins

Last Year’s First Round Pick: (22) Charles Harris OLB MISSOURI

Last Year’s Offense Rankings: Total (24) Pass (26) Rush (9)

GM: Chris Grier

Offensive Coordinator: Clyde Christensen

Defensive Coordinator: Matt Burke

Offensive Scheme: Erhardt-Perkins

Defensive Scheme: 4-3, Attacking

2018 NFL Mock Draft, Dolphins: Deon Cain, WR, Clemson

The Dolphins would like to have a single, healthy QB in place to continue to put in Gase’s offense, that has been an issue now the last two years. The offensive line could be an excellent unit again, allowing the run game to flourish. Adding more weapons on the outside will allow the pass game to continue to grow.

2018 NFL Mock Draft, Giants: Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

The strength of the Raiders was supposed to be their defense fell apart.  One reason was the inability to control the middle of the line of scrimmage.

Dallas had an almost complete flush of their secondary last year, and added a lot of young talent that needs to develop quickly. They added a Michigan defensive lineman last year, and here they would do well to do it again.

Defensive Scheme: 4-3

2018 NFL Mock Draft, Falcons: Vita Vea, DT, Washington

The Falcons added Poe in the off-season to help anchor their defensive line, allowing their outside pass rushers to get to the QB.  But why stop there? They have talent all over their roster, but a dominant middle of their defensive line allows every other defender to improve.
