4: Tackle Zach Martin, Notre Dame
If I have said it once, I have said it a million times, I hate drafting offensive lineman in round one. Unfortunately for the Dolphins they may not have a choice. The teams need on the right side of their line is ridiculous and while the draft is deep this year with lineman, the team can ill afford to not get this position filled in some way.
Most predict Martin to be gone when they select at 19 but there is a possibility that with day one trades, Martin could be sitting there at number 19. Martin would immediately fix the right side of the line and allow the Dolphins to address other positions and let training camp decide on the guard starter from the teams off-season additions. Martin is a very quick agile tackle who projects to the right side in the NFL and some believe that he may be better suited to a move inside at guard. He has not played guard however so it may be a one spot shot for Martin.
