The Miami Dolphins thought so much of Liam Eichenberg that they trade up for him in round two and that will be the smartest move they made this year.
Eichenberg comes from a solid Notre Dame program that has produced very good NFL offensive lineman and there is no reason to believe that Eichenberg won’t immediately make an impact on the Dolphins line.

Eichenberg reminds me of an old-school type lineman. Tough, doesn’t quit, doesn’t stop, and plays through adversity. The biggest question facing Eichenberg is where will he play? He played tackle at Notre Dame but has experience playing inside as well. Will Robert Hunt slide inside so Eichenberg can play out or will Eichenberg take up the guard position?
That’s tough to call this early and the Dolphins are not going to label him just yet. On their website, they list Eichenberg as an offensive tackle but rest assured he will play in camp at both guard and tackle.
Prediction: Eichenberg is going to be starting in Miami for the next 10 years and will make the Pro Bowl at least twice in his Miami career if not more.
