The NFL draft is finally upon us. In just a matter of hours, all the speculation and projection comes to an end as teams start to pick college players to determine their present and future.

We published a poll this week asking readers to predict what will happen with the Miami Dolphins' No. 19 pick. According to more than half of Miami fans, the Dolphins should trade down to acquire more picks.

The Dolphins are in a tricky spot at No. 19 where many of the elite prospects will be off the board. Miami could still get a solid player, but it could be productive to get extra draft picks to move down later in the round, which is similar to what I did in ESPN.com's reporter mock draft.

In second place was Miami using the pick. There could be desired targets such as Notre Dame offensive tackle Zack Martin or Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley available at No. 19. In that case, it would make sense for Miami to use its first-round selection.

In third was trading up in the draft. The Dolphins did that last year when they moved up nine spots to No. 3 overall to select defensive end Dion Jordan. So far that move hasn't panned out, and Miami fans do not want to repeat that this week.
