Omar is going about this story all wrong imo..But that's what he does
Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland had too many holes to plug during the offseason. So he made choices.
When the upgrades were over, right tackle Tyson Clabo, a free agent signee from Atlanta, and right tackle Dallas Thomas, a third-round draft pick from Tennessee, were the Dolphins' main offensive line acquisitions
The Dolphins' biggest offensive line questions are left tackle, right tackle, and right guard.http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/miam ... ?track=rss
Martin, the left tackle, is ranked No. 47 among all tackles, and Clabo, the right tackle, is ranked No. 61.
The offensive line decisions started with left tackle Jake Long, who is tied for 12th best among tackles.
The Dolphins elected not to re-sign Long, largely because he's expensive and considered a long-term injury risk. Long signed a reported four-year, $34 million contract with St. Louis.
The Dolphins opted not to trade for Kansas City left tackle Branden Albert, the 23rd-rated tackle. They chose not to sign Arizona right tackle Eric Winston, rated No. 54, or Baltimore left tackle Bryant McKinnie, rated No. 64.
During the season it's possible they could have traded for left tackle Eugene Monroe (No. 53) or left tackle Levi Brown (No. 56) — Baltimore acquired Monroe from Jacksonville and Pittsburgh acquired Brown from Arizona — but they're marginal upgrades.
Jerry is tied for 46th among all guards. Options were slim here. Perhaps the Dolphins could have drafted Detroit right guard Larry Warford (rated No. 4) or Dallas right guard Brian Winters (tied for 19th), a pair of third-round picks, in the second round. But it would have raised eyebrows at the time.
Maybe it was a bad year to need offensive linemen aside from the first-round picks
