This is one of those advantages the Dolphins had by coaching the Senior Bowl with their work with him. The only issue is giving up a 3rd round pick next year for him, but this is also the result of wanting so many positions filled without enough draft picks. I hope he works out as the Dolphins want him to protect Tua's blind side. The Dolphins grabbed him with the 10th pick in the 2nd round.

2. Offensive tackle Liam Eichenberg
The Dolphins coached Eichenberg, a long, lean and polished offensive lineman from Notre Dame, at the Senior Bowl — and were so impressed they traded a 2022 third-round pick to move up and get ahead of the run on offensive linemen that led to seven linemen being taken shortly after his selection with the 42nd pick in the second round. Eichenberg is a technician, meaning he’s the ideal person to put in charge of blocking Tua Tagovailoa’s blindside at right tackle. If Eichenberg can excel at that spot, and hold off veteran offensive lineman D.J. Fluker, it would open up the possibility of Robert Hunt moving inside to guard, which could benefit the Dolphins’ run game. But Eichenberg must prove he can master the blend of speed and power that comes from NFL pass rushers.
