Former Oregon Duck offensive lineman Penei Sewell is my No. 2 player in the 2021 NFL Draft. Do the Miami Dolphins need a tackle? No, they don’t, but selecting one will allow them to improve three positions with one move. 2020 2nd round pick Robert Hunt would bump into the right guard, a spot where he is best suited. Then, 2020 4th round pick Solomon Kindley would be able to bump to left guard, giving the Dolphins a dominant offensive line. From left to right, it would look like this: LT Austin Jackson, LG Kindley, C Corey Linsley, RG Hunt, and RT Sewell. A line like this is one you dream up in a madden franchise, but this is a real possibility for the Dolphins.
Sewell is a rare breed, freak of nature athlete. He’s a massive man, standing at 6-6 and weighing in over 330 pounds, but he wears his weight well. Sewell is an excellent athlete and gives you a lot of good reps in the screen game. He also gets me juiced in the run game because he finishes all of his blocks. He wants the defender to feel him every single play, and I love that nastiness.
Sewell at No. 3 may not be the sexy pick, but solidifying the offensive line should be Miami’s No. 1 priority this offseason.
The former Oregon Duck could be Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside protector for the next 10+ years. I know fans want to see the Dolphins draft a pass-catcher here at No. 3, but the receiver class is the deepest position in the 2021 NFL Draft.
