The Miami Dolphins have gotten a lot younger along the offensive line but need to get better.
Being young along the offensive line isn’t always ideal but it also isn’t a bad situation to be in either. Now, the Dolphins interior guys need to get better and take the next step.
Miami started three rookies along the offensive line in 2020 and there is speculation that they will add more lineman in this year’s draft. In free agency, they are not likely going to spend a ton of money on the line but instead focus their money elsewhere.

Brandon Scherff – There was a time that Scherff would have been a top target of the Dolphins but this year, probably not.
Ted Karras – Karras is an in-house free agent and while the Dolphins may draft his replacement, they will likely keep Karras around another year and he wants to stick around as well.
Joe Thuney – Last year there were reports that Thuney was a target for the Dolphins. He stayed in New England but will that change this year? Hard to say as the Dolphins are not in the market for a starting guard with Solomon Kindley and Ereck Flowers starting on the right and left.
There are a lot of options heading toward free agency but again, it’s hard to know what the Dolphins view as a problem in this area. Developing Robert Hunt, Austin Jackson, and even Michael Dieter should be the priorities and if the draft falls wrong for the Dolphins in other areas, Creed Humphrey or maybe Penei Sewell would be the best upgrades Miami can find.
