Miami Dolphins 2014 NFL Mock Draft Tracker: Taylor Lewan, Michigan

What will the Miami Dolphins do in the 2014 NFL draft? Keep track of all the predictions made in our mock drafts leading up to Round 1 on May 8.

March 5, 2014 — 2014 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 (Doug Farrar)

Round 1, pick 19: Zack Martin, G/T, Notre Dame

We said: No NFL team has more offensive line issues than the Dolphins, and with Richie Incognito — and likely  Jonathan Martin – out of the picture,  it’s time to replenish. It would make just as much sense to go with one of the better guard prospects here, but if Martin’s available, he’d fit this particular offensive structure. Martin’s not particularly athletic, and some project him as a guard at the next level, but the Dolphins generally have no issue with such tweeners, and Martin has a good fundamental understanding of his position.

Feb. 26, 2014 — 2014 NFL Mock Draft 5.0 (Chris Burke)

Round 1, pick 19: Zack Martin, G/T, Notre Dame

We said: For reasons off the field and on, Miami’s situation on the offensive line is in shambles. In fact, the Dolphins may commit multiple picks to their guard and tackle spots. Martin would offer them the versatility to bolster their situation either outside or inside. This would be a strong first step toward remaking the Miami front.

Round 2, pick 50: Ra’Shede Hageman, DT, Minnesota

We said: Hageman belongs in the first round; with Paul Soliai and Randy Starks en route to free agency, Miami likely will need help up front.

Feb. 19, 2014  – 2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 (Don Banks)

Round 1, pick 19: Zack Martin, G/T, Notre Dame

We said: Sure, why not? Drafting another offensive tackle named Martin might just be one way to turn the page in Miami after the Dolphins' offensive line became front-page news for all the wrong reasons in 2013. Martin played tackle for the Irish, but he's versatile enough to handle any of the five offensive line positions, according to NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock. That kind of adaptability might come in handy in Miami, given that the Dolphins O-line could conceivably feature four or even five new starters if center Mike Pouncey is suspended by the league in the fallout of the Jonathan Martin-Richie Incognito investigation.

Feb. 6, 2014 -- 2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 (Doug Farrar)

Round 1, pick 19: Cyrus Kouandjio, OT, Alabama

We said: The future of the Dolphins’ offensive line is uncertain in the wake of whatever actually happened between Richie Incognito and Jonathan Martin. The addition of Kouandjio would give the Dolphins a versatile, technique-sound left tackle able to man a position that was iffy even when the inconsistent Martin was in there.

Jan. 9, 2014 -- 2014 NFL Mock Draft 4.0 (Chris Burke)

Round 1, pick 19: Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

We said: This is the lowest I’ve had Lewan in any of the mocks thus far, but all those QBs, WRs and TEs in the top 18 (plus Greg Robinson’s decision to turn pro) forced an adjustment. That’s probably just fine with the Dolphins, who are in dire need of reliable bodies up front along a disheveled line. Lewan is a strong pass blocker and a better run blocker than the rest of Michigan’s line allowed him to show in 2013.

Dec. 5, 2013 -- 2014 NFL Mock Draft 3.1 (Chris Burke)

Round 1, pick 22: Cameron Erving, OT, Florida State

We said: The Dolphins traded for Bryant McKinnie. That happened in real life. Miami has to find some answers at its tackle positions, even if the top few prospects there are off the board. Erving’s a high-risk, high-reward pick here — a player who could develop into a long-term starter on Ryan Tannehill’s blindside.

Sept. 24, 2013 -- 2014 NFL Mock Draft 2.0 (Chris Burke)

Round 1, pick 24: Louis Nix III, DT, Notre Dame

We said: Nix would be an absolute steal down here — the safe money is on the hulking Notre Dame interior lineman being a top-15 pick when all is said and done. The Dolphins need to start planning for the future up front, with a frustrated Randy Starks playing on a franchise tag and Paul Soliai set to hit free agency.

April 30, 2013 -- 2014 NFL Mock Draft 1.0 (Chris Burke)

Round 1, pick 13: Stephon Tuitt, DT/DE, Notre Dame

We said:
