The Miami Dolphins’ first-round pick will be contingent on the 49ers and how they fare in 2022.
For the Miami Dolphins, no other position should be a bigger need than filling a spot on the offensive line. Liam Eichenberg continues to struggle and even though we are uncertain about Austin Jackson’s future at right tackle, Skoronski gives Miami a versatile offensive lineman that can play both guard and tackle.
Skoronski’s stock continues to rise and his versatility and his athleticism is a reason why. He was able to step in for Rashawn Slater when he was injured. As a freshman, he showed up and in 2021 he took over the starting job at left tackle.
Miami doesn’t need a left tackle but with Terron Armstead on the roster, the Dolphins are going to need someone at some point in the year to take over when he is out. Being able to shift Skoronski outside from left guard makes a lot of sense and gives the Dolphins more options.
An offensive line of Austin Jackson, Robert Hunt, Conner Williams, Skoronski, and Armstead could be very good with the RT spot the weakest. Another option would be for the Dolphins to move Williams back to his natural guard spot on the left and draft a center instead.
