Sounds like we are might go OL if a good one is out there. Read http://www.miami.com/herald/content/sports/football/dolphins/digdocs/081725.htm and http://www.miami.com/herald/content/sports/football/dolphins/digdocs/027254.htm.

sorry Ice:
Picking No. 27 and with no second-round pick to package to move higher, the Dolphins have little shot at the likes of Bryant McKinnie (University of Miami), Mike Williams (Texas) or Tony Fonoti (Nebraska).
They like UM's G Martin Bibla in the 3rd round or so.

Fonoti will probably be available when we pick, he is a huge talent but will probably fall to us due to other teams needs.

Fonoti's stock is rising, and many have him number 1 on the board at guard, so he will most likely be gone at 23, but that would leave Gurode or Metcalf. I like both of thease guys. gurode has been playing a little center at teh senior bowl to show how versatile he is, and Metcalf could, and has played both guard, and tackle.

But don't count out sewing up the o-line in FA and selecting Deshaun Foster in the first round. The word from the senior bowl is that he playing better than expected, and has more speed than thought. If he can put on 10-15 lbs by the combine I would expect Dave to consider him, but only free agence will tell.
