Miami Dolphins fill need in post Super Bowl first round mock

Miami Dolphins take Texas A&M offensive guard Kenyon Green 29th overall
The pick you have all been waiting for fills a massive need for the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins don’t necessarily face a make-or-break offseason, but it is likely that quarterback Tua Tagoviloa is facing an uphill battle to convince fans that he is the quarterback of the future.
It is clear that the Dolphins are prioritizing improving the offensive line. Their new offensive coordinator Frank Smith helped the Chargers’ offensive line and run game improve in 2021.
The Dolphins should prioritize the offensive line in free agency with names like left tackle Terron Armstead and right guard Brandon Scherff on the market. Personally, I think it would be for the best to kick out Robert Hunt back to right tackle, a position he showed signs at in his rookie season.
With that in mind, taking Texas A&M offensive guard Kenyon Green would be a massive pick-up. Yes, the team could keep trying to develop former first-round pick Austin Jackson and 2021 second-round pick Liam Echienberg, but both players struggled heavily at multiple positions.
Green would come in looking to take over the left guard position and solidify that area. He was one of the best guards in the SEC during his career and his 6-foot-4, 324-pound frame should translate to the NFL.
If the Dolphins decided not to take offensive line at this spot, their second-best option would be Michigan State running back Kenneth Walker III. Yes, both McDaniel and Smith have had success with late-round or undrafted running backs, but adding a dynamic player like Walker will likely open up the playbook and give the team a workhorse running back.
