Miami Dolphins Draft: Round 3 OG Prospects

Who can the Miami Dolphins target in round 3 of the NFL Draft at the offensive line position?

1. Nico Siragusa, OG, San Diego State Aztecs

According to Walter Football, Siragusa was an "effective run blocker for Donnel Pumphrey in 2016. Siragusa struggled in pass blocking at the Senior Bowl. Siragusa was a quality starter at left guard for the Aztecs in 2015. He is a powerful run blocker who should work on his pass protection. Siragusa broke into the starting lineup in 2014 as a sophomore." Siragusa could be a plug and play option for the Dolphins at guard, who had two natural left tackles playing the position last season.

In reference to his 2016 stats, according to the official San Diego State Aztecs website, has been named a preseason all-MW?pick by four publications so far, including ESPN College Football 2016, Sporting News, Lindy's Sports and Athlon Sports. He has also been rated highly, coming in at No. 3 for Campus Insiders' "Five-Best MW?Pro Prospects," No. 4 for Lindy's "MW's Top-10 NFL?Talent," and No. 7 for Lindy's "Offensive Guards on the 2017 NFL Draft Board”. He was also chosen as the "MW's Best Run Blocker" by Lindy's Sports.

2. Isaac Asiata, OL, Utah Utes

According to Walter Football, Asiata is a "quality run blocker who has to improve his pass protection. Injuries ravaged the Utes in 2016, and as a result, Asiata took some snaps at center after J.J. Dielman went out for the season. Guard might be a better fit for Asiata in the NFL, and that was reinforced at the Senior Bowl."

In reference to his 2016 stats, according to the official Utah Utes website, all-conference candidate has started at least part time since his freshman year and will start at left guard this fall. He started every game the last two seasons at guard and in four games at right tackle as a freshman. He has played in 44 games with 42 starts in his career. He was 2016– Second-team all-Pac-12 and started 12 games at left guard and second on the team in plays with 928 snaps. He leads Utah with 13 cuts and season-high three cuts against Southern Utah, USC and Oregon State. He scored a touchdown against USC after falling on a fumble in the end zone. He was a Morris Award recipient as voted on by the Pac-12s starting defensive linemen.

3. David Sharpe, OT, Florida Gators

According to the NFL official website, Sharpe is "a massive tackle who will be forced to bump inside due to a lack of athletic ability to handle pass protection details. Sharpe does have enough size and length to get a team out of the game at tackle if injuries set in. Sharpe's lack of leverage and lateral agility limits what teams can ask of him and he needs to be in the right scheme for a chance at success as a starter. This is why it is confusing to many NFL affiliates that Sharpe is going pro, he simply does not have the production needed at his current state to enter into the NFL but he does have real potential and that is why some believe he could make in the league."

In reference to his stats over the years, according to the official Florida Gators website, He declared for the NFL Draft after his junior season. For 2016, he started all 13 games at left tackle for the Gators. He was one of two Gators to start every game throughout the season. For 2015, He played in all 14 games, starting 13 at left tackle. For 2014: He played in six games as a true freshman, working his way into the offensive line rotation. He saw action at left tackle in a reserve role.
