Likelihood of the Dolphins using a pick at the position: The Dolphins have a lot more pressing needs to address, but there's no question that adding a young offensive tackle would make sense. We would expect a pick or two to be spent on that position, and perhaps earlier in the draft than some might think.
The top prospects: 1. Eugene Monroe, Virginia; 2. Jason Smith, Baylor; 3. Andre Smith, Alabama; 4. Michael Oher, Mississippi; 5. Eben Britton, Arizona; 6. Will Beatty, UConn; 7. Jamon Meredith, South Carolina; 8. Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma; 9. Fenuki Tupou, Oregon; 10. Troy Kropog, Tulane
Summary: There's been a lot of talk about this position heading into the draft, and a lot of it has centered around the bad spring turned in by Alabama's Andre Smith. On pure talent alone, he just might be the best tackle available, but he's not likely to be drafted first because of questions about his dedication. There's been a lot of debate as well as to whether Smith or Monroe is the best tackle in this draft, but while Smith might have more upside, we think Monroe will be the better NFL player. Overall, it's another deep group of prospects at the position.
