Wilson and Lindstrom are picks aimed at beefing up the trenches on both sides of the ball.
Round 3 Pick 85
FSU DT Marvin Wilson
Wilson is a player that is clearly all over the board when it comes to mock drafts. Some places have him going as high as the first round and some as low as the mid-third round.
If Wilson had come out last year, he most likely would’ve been a mid-first round pick.
To be honest, I am not quite sure why Wilson has fallen, it could quite possibly be the issues around the Florida State program as of late, but Wilson is an ideal fit next to Christian Wilkins.
Wilson is about to absorb blocks, make plays as a run stuffer, and even get to the quarterback. He was also one of the bigger bright spots in an awful Florida State team.
Wilson will have time to improve his draft stock, but if he remains available in round 3, this is an A+ pick for the Dolphins.
Round 4 Pick 118
Boston College OC Alec Lindstrom
Going back to the Moses pick in the first round, there were two options I went through in my head. The first was Moses due to the need for a run stuffer, the second was Oklahoma OC Creed Humphrey.
I went with Moses, because I felt as though Lindstrom in the later rounds would fit nicely. Lindstrom has been instrumental in a surprisingly good Boston College football team and could slot nicely if Ted Karras leaves after this season, or even as a depth piece if he stays.
Lindstrom should be expected to move around the interior of the offensive line and help the team in the case of injuries.
It’s never a bad idea to have multiple offensive lineman on the roster, and Lindstrom could have a future as a starter on the Phins.
