In taking a look at 20 NFL mock drafts produced recently by national news organizations, there are two common trends for the Miami Dolphins — guard or defense.

It seems more likely the Dolphins would select a front seven player in the first round and defer the need for a guard to the second or third round. And yet, the most trendy choice among national mockers is emerging as guard Forrest Lamp.

Lamp is certainly worth of close evaluation, as written here, but Miami really, really needs to add youth at defensive line and linebacker.
