This offensive line class looks to be a very solid group. I was a defensive back in high school, and while I love the skill position people, you win games in the trenches.
We all know the Dolphins are in a precarious position at OLT, with OLT Jake Long being a free agent and probably wanting more money than Miami wants to pay. The Dolphins have a potential solution in house in ORT Jonathan Martin, who played OLT coming out of Stanford. I can say right now that he would be a major concern for me.
I saw Martin far to many times just get overpowered at ORT, and he had those same issues once he moved to OLT, although he looked better. I think he will improve, but my preference would be to leave him at ORT.
A kid that stock continues to rise is OLT Lane Johnson of Oklahoma. He came in at 6'6, 303 lbs and ran a 4.72 40. He is a former QB, TE, DE and was moved to OLT 2 years ago. He is very athletic and looked very strong in the drills today as well. He also did 28 reps @ 225 lbs. He will probably go in the top 15-20, behind Luke Joeckel of Texas A & M and Eric Fisher of Central Michigan.
If the Dolphins go OL in the 1st round, he is a PRIME candidate. I know some folks may vomit to even think about that, but it is a problem that NEEDS to be resolved if Jake Long is not retained and the Dolphins don't address it in free agency or fell Martin is the answer.
An option later in the draft is OLT Terron Armstead of Arkansas Pine Bluff. He has come on strong and looked very good in the East West Shrine Bowl and got a late invite to the Senior Bowl. Mike Mayock spoke highly of him and he had the fast time in the 40 at 4.71. At 6'6, 306 lbs, he did 31 reps @ 225 lbs and looked solid in the drills today as well.
A couple of very good OG candidates are OG Johnathan Cooper of UNC and Larry Warford of Kentucky. Cooper came in at 6'2, 311 lbs and ran a 5.07 40. He did 35 reps at @225 lbs and looked quick in the field drills. He has the ability to pull and get to the 2nd level, something the Dolphins are looking for with the zone blocking scheme they emply now. Warford came in at 6'3, 332 lbs and ran a 5.53 40. He did 28 reps @ 225 lbs. He is more of a phone booth power guy, but has quick enough feet in a short area to possibly fit what Miami wants to do. Kyle Long of Oregon is another kid to keep an eye on at OG. He came in at 6'6, 313 lbs and ran a 4.93 40. He did not participate in the bench press, but he has the movement the Dolphins like and he has played OT as well at Oregon. One last kid is OG Alvin Bailey of Arkansas. He came in at 6'3, 312 lbs and ran a 4.95 40 and did 27 reps @ 225 lbs.
A couple of ORT to keep an eye on if the Dolphins decide to move Martin to OLT is Menelik Watson of Florida State, Oday Aboushi of Virginia and Brennan Williams of UNC just to name a few kids. Watson came in at 6'5, 310 lbs and ran a 5.25 40. He did no do the bench press. Aboushi came in at 6'5, 308 lbs and ran a 5.45 40, but did only 17 reps @225 lbs. Williams came in at 6'6, 318 lbs. He did not do any of the drills, as I do believe he is coming off an injury.
There are a lot of other guys that looked good, but just throwing out a few names.
