Although Notre Dame tackle/guard Zack Martin is the popular name to go to the Dolphins with the No. 19 overall pick, a source with knowledge of the situation tells the Palm Beach Post that Miami general manager Dennis Hickey prefers Alabama tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.
The Dolphins would also consider Michigan tackle Taylor Lewan. But Lewan will likely be off the board and the Dolphins prefer Kouandjio to Virginia tackle Morgan Moses. Miami could even consider drafting Kouandjio if Lewan is available.
“Dennis has got a love for Kouandjio and he should be sitting there for them,” the source said.
While there’s been recent speculation that the Dolphins would consider Alabama’s C.J. Mosley or another linebacker early, the source said the Dolphins are not planning to draft a linebacker. Instead, Miami is planning to move Koa Misi to inside linebacker. Dannell Ellerbe would move to weakside linebacker and Philip Wheeler would become the strongside linebacker.
