Miami Dolphins: Jonathan Martin, OT, Stanford
Miami has to do something about the quarterback position this offseason. The Dolphins could try to acquire Matt Flynn, especially given his background with new head coach Joe Philbin. If Miami lands Flynn or another NFL veteran, the team could use this pick to provide some better blocking. Marc Columbo was a liability at right tackle this year, and the Dolphins could use a bookend tackle to pair with Jake Long.
'Moose' Martin (6-6, 304) was an excellent player for Stanford. He dominated the Pac-10 in 2010. Martin has the pass-protecting potential to be a standout tackle, and is a tenacious run blocker. He does a fabulous job of setting the edge, and the Cardinal had a lot of success running behind him with David DeCastro pulling from right guard. Martin is experienced at protecting a franchise quarterback and the pressure that comes with the position. At the pro level, Martin will need some work to develop his pass protection, but he has big upside. Martin could be an excellent right tackle.
