NFL Draft rumors: Dolphins targeting Cyrus Kouandjio in first round

There is plenty of belief that the Miami Dolphins will be drafting an offensive lineman in the first-round of the 2014 NFL Draft, but the player that they are targeting may come as a bit of a surprise.

While the likes of Michigan’s Taylor Lewan, Notre Dame’s Zack Martin and Morgan Moses of Virginia have been linked to Miami, it appears that they are looking towards a player that entered the season as the projected No. 1 offensive tackle in the class.

According to The Palm Beach Post, Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey favors Alabama’s Cyrus Kouandjio.

Dennis has got a love for Kouandjio and he should be sitting there for them,” a source told the publication.

Kouandjio has plenty of talent, but he has lost some of his appeal because of some knee issues that could potentially plague him throughout his career.

It will be interesting to see if Kouandjio is the pick in Miami, but one thing you can bank on is that the team will be improving their offensive line.
