I have zero knowledge on this Man, other than alot of people, who act like they know what their talking about, say he's the best Center in the draft. I hope no one gets upset this year, if the first round pick goes to the O line.

"Iowa center Tyler Linderbaum announced Friday he'll skip his senior season and enter the NFL draft.The consensus All-American was the Big Ten's offensive lineman of the year and received the Rimington Trophy as the nation's top center. He also was a finalist for the Lombardi Award and Outland Trophy. Linderbaum started 35 consecutive games at center after arriving from Solon, Iowa, as a defensive lineman. He is projected to be a first-round draft pick and the first center selected."

per the AP

Having an all star resume as an OL from Iowa stands out. That has to be one of the best states for OL.

Only knock on him is his size. He's a bit undersized, depending on the scheme you run.

There is a video of him absolutely pummeling All Pro tackle Tristan Wirfs in either a high school or college wrestling match.

The guy is an animal and strong as an ox.

He should firmly be on Miami's radar but he is likely a top 15 pick.

Its about leverage. If he knows how to use it. He will be fine.

If memory serves me correct. D. Stephenson will considered undersized back in the day.

I'm not knocking him, just stating what I have heard. If we have a shot at him it's a no-brainer.

The second Kirk Ferentz retires from Iowa, the Dolphins should do what it takes to get him to Miami to be the Executive-In-Charge of everything O-line related.

He won’t be available when we pick, that’s almost a given.

CBS Sports just mocked us OT Darian Kinnard. One thing for sure is that we need SF to lose this weekend as this pick is dropping fast.

Kyle Crabbs (Locked On Dolphins podcast) thinks we should trade our 1st pick for a proven commodity on the O line or WR. We have the cap room and have not demonstrated the ability to draft OL well. If we want a quick turnaround for our offense we need some established studs on the O line. I'm completely in on this idea. (More so the OL than WR.)

I'm okay with trading for a 1st for a stud OL who another team cannot afford. But it has to be for a guy you envision in Miami for 5 years (at least).

The draft has nice options at WR and I think a few teams will be making some cuts that will be attractive for Miami. I could see Dallas cutting Amari Cooper. The guy has a $20 million+ cap hit the next few years.

I would take a proven commodity over another bust. We do not have the best track record drafting OL anyway. We also need OL to help our WRs to get open and get downfield, right Rich?

Depending on what we do with Ogbah (resign the man, please!) there aren't very many positions of need on the defensive side of the ball. We've been asking for an impact LB for a few years right now but I'm holding off on pushing for anything until we see who's going to be running the D and what scheme they bring. Hopefully it won't be a total reset; that would be foolish. We're good at what we've been doing, why start over?

On offense, there's barely a position we SHOULDN'T be targeting. I hope we spend our assets accordingly.
