NFL Draft Results: Dolphins Pick OT Dallas Thomas with 77th overall pick

Randy Sartin-US PRESSWIRE

The Miami Dolphins have made their second pick on the night. With the 77th overall selection, the Dolphins picked offensive tackle Dallas Thomas.

With the 77th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins have selected offensive tackle Dallas Thomas from Tennessee.

This is Miami's second pick on the night, having selected cornerback Jamar Taylor in the second round. The Dolphins also picked defensive end Dion Jordan yesterday with the third overall pick.

The Thomas selection addresses the Dolphins' top need going into the draft, adding a tackle to the offensive line. The Dolphins lost Jake Long in free agency this year, and will likely slide Jonathan Martin from right tackle to left tackle, while playing Thomas on the right side. Thomas could also play guard if needed.

On the NFL.com scouting report about Thomas, the "Bottom Line" was:

Thomas has three years of starting experience in the SEC under his belt. He spent his Sophomore and Junior seasons at left tackle, before moving to guard in his senior season. Thomas plays with great flexibility. He also has the ability to anchor into his blocks. Thomas likely profiles better as an offensive guard, but is capable of playing left tackle in the NFL, despite less than ideal foot quickness. Thomas should be a top-50 selection

Miami still has one more pick in the third round, number 82 overall. The team could use wide receiver, running back, or tight end help, but have fairly well addressed all of their needs at this point.
