Earlier today we started taking a look at the Miami Dolphins 2012 Draft class, getting our community ranking for each draft pick individually. With Ryan Tannehill taking the first Miami pick, he also was the first player to face your votes. Now, it's time to turn out attention to second round pick, offensive tackle Jonathan Martin from Stanford
What he brings: Martin's light on his feet, and has good lateral quickness in pass protection. However, he's a guy who needs to get stronger in the core, especially in the run game, as well as anchoring against power moves, which may be a reason why he fell to the second round.
How he fits: His skill set probably fits more at LOT, but with Jake Long sitting there, he will likely have a great chance to start at ROT, which was a huge weakness. That's where Marc Colombo was a weak link a year ago. If Martin can handle ROT, it gives the Dolphins the flexibility of keeping their guards inside and not have to move a guy outside. It could give them six quality offensive lineman.
Pick Analysis: Mayock's take: "First-round talent right here, tremendous arm length. I call him a little bit of a finesse player. Doesn't mean he's not tough, but he's so good with his feet and understands angles. I believe the Dolphins just got themselves a starter on either the right or left side."
What grade do you give the Miami Dolphins' pick of Jonathan Martin in the second round?
