Round 3 – This is where things start to get interesting. There is the potential to have another very good, potential starter fall in the Dolphins lap here. There is a long wait between pick number 50 in the second round and pick 101 here in the third.
Alec Lindstrom – IOL – Boston College – Boston College linemen had a very good combine and Lindstrom was one of them. The Dolphins will certainly be in the know when it comes to these players having added former Boston College offensive line coach Matt Applebaum to its staff. Lindstrom was a three year starter for the Eagles, earning first team all ACC honors twice. Lindstrom, with a little coaching, could step in and be the Dolphins starting center for years to come.
James Cook – RB – Georgia – This would obviously depend on whether the Dolphins go with a running back in the second round. Cook is the younger brother of the Vikings Dalvin Cook, so he certainly has some pedigree. Cook doesn’t have a lot of wear and tear as he’s been stuck in a continually loaded backfield at Georgia. Cook excels in the passing game as he possesses very good hands. The jury is out on whether Cook could handle the primary ball carrier role but he certainly has the skills to be a productive contributor in both the run and pass game.
Quay Walker – LB – Georgia – Not only was Georgia loaded at running back, but they were also loaded at linebacker. Walker was overshadowed at Georgia by Nakobe Dean but Walker is a good player in his own right. Walker is extremely athletic and excels in space. He’s another guy with position flexibility as he lined up at linebacker, on the line of scrimmage and in the slot during his time at Georgia. Another movable piece for Boyer’s defense.
