More Offensive Help

The Dolphins continued bolstering the offense with their second pick of the second round, drafting Hawaii center Samson Satele with the 60th overall selection -- the pick obtained from New England in the Wes Welker trade.

Satele was the second center drafted after USC's Ryan Kalil went to Carolina on the previous pick, and that's pretty much the way most analysts had the pecking order at the position.

Satele earned first-team All-WAC honors the last two years, as a guard in 2005 and as a center last season.

In a conference call with members of the South Florida media, Satele says he considers himself a multi-position lineman as opposed to strictly a center.

Regardless of where he plays, Satele will come to the Dolphins well versed in the art of pass blocking after spending his college career playing in June Jones' pass-happy offense.

Satele, who hasn't cut his hair since he enrolled at Hawaii in 2002, has a few cousins who played in the NFL, including Jaguars guard Vince Manuwai.
