With the 42nd pick of Pride of Detroit's 2012 NFL mock draft, the Miami Dolphins select Ohio State offensive tackle . Chucka is serving as the Dolphins' general manager, and his reasoning for the pick is below.
Miami allowed 52 sacks last season, one short of the franchise record, so it's clear help is needed here. Starters Jake Long, Mike Pouncey, Vernon Carey and Marc Colombo each were taken in the first round, so you'd think they'd be OK. They weren't, with Colombo being the worst of the four. He struggled all season, making right tackle a position of need. Ohio State OT Mike Adams, who can play the right side, fills the need and is also the best player available. With no WRs or QBs worthy of being drafted here, this is the pick.
