19. Miami Dolphins: Morgan Moses, OT, Virginiahttp://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft201 ... fresh/true
The biggest concern I have with this pick is whether the Dolphins think that Moses can play at right tackle, because he really came into his own during the 2013 season when he played left tackle after playing right earlier in his career. If Miami takes him here, it will obviously want Moses to start opposite newly acquired left tackle Branden Albert, so the Dolphins need to be comfortable with Moses making the transition. If they are, this is a great pick and potentially a steal at No. 19. He possesses excellent size and length, and he played his best against his best individual competition this season.

Several players in recent weeks have been linked to the Dolphins at No. 19. But ESPN.com draft expert Todd McShay provided his latest projection for Miami on Thursday, and it’s not a player you would expect.http://insider.espn.go.com/blog/afceast/post?id=69935
According to McShay’s latest mock draft, the Dolphins will select Virginia offensive tackle Morgan Moses in the first round. Moses is considered to have the size to start at the NFL level. However, there have been major questions about his work ethic, and these are the kinds of players Dolphins coach Joe Philbin is trying to avoid -- especially in the first round.
McShay is on the right path with the offensive line. While the Dolphins could go “best available player,” guard and offensive tackle remain Miami’s biggest needs. But Moses, in my opinion, would be a better option for Miami in the second round or later. Moses has boom-or-bust potential, and selecting him at No. 19 overall would be too risky for the Dolphins.
