A big name in recent draft conversation for the Miami Dolphins has be Lane Johnson from Oklahoma. The only problem with this conversation is that Johnson probably won't fall to the Dolphins at the #12 spot. With this year being considered an off year for top tier tallent, Johnson will be scooped up as early as #7 to the Cardinals or as late as #11 to the Chargers. I'm sure you see the problem here. If the Dolphins want Johnson bad enough they may need to trade up. Is Johnson worth it to play right, or maybe left tackle if he proves himself better than Martin. What if their was a better solution as far as value, while still getting a very similar player?
Reid Fragel, OT, Ohio State
Weight: 308 lbs
Fragel is a converted tight end who switched to tackel his senior year. He is extremely athletic and has good strength to back it up. He most likely won't be an instant starter, but could be featured as an extra blocker in offensive lineman loaded fronts. Fragel looks to be a 4th or 5th round pick as of now. Here is a link to what NFL.com has to say about Fragel.
Fragel would fit perfectly in zone blocking scheme due to his athleticism. The other great thing about Fragel is that with Braxton Miller at quarterback, Ohio State ran a good amount of read option plays. Miami will be adding some read option plays this season after other teams and their own success with it. Here is Fragel vs. Michigan State. He faced a formidable opponent in William Gholston
If Johnson isn't available at 12 Miami should hold pat and take a player who can come in and help at a position, or best player available. Miami could draft two offensive linemen and go into the season with open competition. It would also be nice if Miami was able to sign Eric Winston for instant stability.
