It would be hard to get more than a few words into any review of the Dolphins’ 2013 season without mentioning the implosion of their offensive line.
Tackle Jonathan Martin walked away from the team after being subjected to harassment by guard Richie Incognito, who was suspended by the team, and others, leading to an investigation that turned up more problematic behavior and was a black eye for all in the organization. Making matters worse is the fact that the Dolphins’ line wasn’t any good before the behind the scenes revelations shoveled further dirt on the team.
Incognito, Martin, tackle Tyson Clabo and guard John Jerry, who was implicated in the harassment of Martin and other players, are all gone and the Dolphins need to replace them in the draft. It would be a surprise if the Dolphins didn’t add multiple offensive linemen to the roster over the seven rounds, but those aren’t their only needs.
