I've been saying something to the same effect all along. We are mocked to take something like the 4th or 5th tackle on the board and that's not worth it when you can get another position who has a higher probability of hitting. Some people are suggesting we take 3-4 offensive line man and that is idiotic. Philbin and Hickey appear to have 2 years to turn it around and that doesn't translate to project linemen. Like mentioned before get a RB and WR in the first three picks because those will be the best value picks and have a better chance of impacting IMO. All this means we will have to work hard in free agency to shore up the line but that is doable.
I don't think so. Taylor Lewan could fall there and he's very solid. I think Antonio Richardson is a better player than he is being mocked and could be there at 19. Both are probably better suited for RT, but either would be a huge upgrade over what Miami has had at LT.
Lewan, Martin and Richardson. Get one of those @19 and i'm happy.
I still like Cyril. Huge guard that can pull nicely.

I'd be fine with Martin, Kouandjio, Lewan, Mosley, Ebron, Nix, and even Clinton-Dix. There will be a good player for us.
