Miami Dolphins Draft: Late Round OG Prospects

Zaria Cornwall reviews late round options for the Miami Dolphins at Guard.

Ben Braden, OG, Michigan Wolverines

The MGOBLUE website officially states that Braden was a three-year letterman; Two-year starter, he appeared in 38 career games along the offensive line and made 36 starting assignments, he had a string of 25 consecutive starting assignments, he snapped in the 2016 opener against Hawaii, and 2015-16 All-Big Ten honoree; second team in 2016 and 2015 honorable mention.

In reference to his 2016 stats, according to the official Michigan Wolverines website, Braden was All-Big Ten second team, he started at left guard in four contests and made seven starts at left tackle Missed the opener against Hawaii, he returned to the lineup against UCF, he started at left tackle against Illinois, at Michigan State ,Maryland, Iowa, Indiana, and Ohio State, he started at left tackle for one final game against Florida State in the Orange Bowl, and he was selected as a game captain against the Seminoles.

Braden is a great late round prospect for the Miami Dolphins, and could compete for a starting job among a weak unit.

Jermaine Eluemunor, OG, Texas A&M Aggies

At 6-foot-4, 330 pounds, Eluemunor is a monster of a man and would likely compete with Ted Larsen for the Dolphins second guard spot.

In reference to his 2015 stats, according to the official Texas A&M website, Eluemunor served as the AggiesNo. 2 right guard for the majority of the season, he made his first career start in the Music City Bowl against Louisville, and saw action in 13 of 13 games.

Sean Harlow, OG, Oregon State Beavers

The Oregon State Beavers officially states that Harlow has 37 career starts, 23 at left tackle and 14 at right tackle, he practiced at center sporadically throughout his career but played exclusively at tackle, her raduated with a degree in human development and family sciences in December, he was invited to play in the East-West Shrine Game, but elected not to play, and was invited to participate in the NFL Combine.

In reference to his 2016 stats, according to the official OSU website, Harlow started final nine games of the season at left tackle, he did not participate in spring practice session while rehabbing his injury from 2015, he remained sidelined during fall camp and into 2016 and considered using his redshirt season, he returned to the lineup as the starting left tackle at Colorado, he helped the Beavers set the OSU single-season rushing record with 5.2 yards per carry, he was chosen as a team captain, and named to the Pac-12 All-Conference Second Team.

All three of this guards would be great late round additions for the Dolphins, who currently have three 5th round picks in this year´s draft. While I fully expect the team to address this position in the earlier rounds, look for them to add depth pieces in the later rounds, many of which could include one of these players.
