Poll results: Dolphins draft Zack Martin

The results are in.

This past Friday we asked Miami Dolphins fans to select, realistically, the player their team should draft with the No. 19 overall pick. According to more than half of those who voted, Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin is the selection.

Martin beat out Alabama offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and Virginia offensive tackle Morgan Moses. The “other” category got about 12 percent.

The match between Martin and the Dolphins makes sense. Miami could lose as many as four starting offensive linemen in free agency. Right tackle Jonathan Martin, who was the victim of a bullying scandal, also is expected to be traded or released. Zack Martin can infuse youth and leadership to a thin group.

However, Zack Martin has questions about his position at the next level. He played tackle in college but has the body of an NFL guard. It may come down to however a team views him. The Dolphins desperately need help at both positions.
