Holmes the popular pick

Unlike last year, when the Dolphins had the second overall pick and the options seemed so much more obvious, it seems like anybody's guess what Nick Saban will do with the 16th overall selection in the first round. That's why there's such a wide variety of players and positions included in a group of 21 mock drafts we visited.

The player most often mentioned as the Dolphins' pick was Ohio State's Santonio Holmes, with seven votes, followed by Virginia Tech cornerback Jimmy Williams with four.

Eight players were mentioned as the Dolphins' first-round pick, and a total of seven positions were mentioned.

The most popular position was cornerback with eight mentions, followed by wide receiver and Holmes' seven mentions.

Every position on defense were mentioned, while wide receiver and quarterback were the only two spots mentioned on offense.

Of course, these mocks don't include trades, which certainly is a possibility for the Dolphins.

So here's the rundown of those 21 mocks as it pertains to the Dolphins' first-round pick.
