It’s never a bad idea to bring in gigantic offensive linemen, even on a trial basis, and the Dolphins picked one up today in Roubbens Joseph.
Joseph is a 23-year-old project who was with the Ravens last offseason but failed to make their roster. He originally signed as an undrafted free agent out of the University at Buffalo and stuck with Baltimore through training camp.
Joseph, now 6-foot-4, 312 pounds, started every game for the Bulls at left tackle as a senior.
He joins an offensive line that has left tackle Laremy Tunsil and right tackle Ja’Wuan James as clear starters. The Dolphins also have versatile lineman Jesse Davis available to play either tackle spot if needed, though he is expected to compete for the starting right guard spot.
In addition to those guys, Miami has ave backups Sam Young and Zach Sterup returning, as well as developmental projects Sean Hickey and Eric Smith.
The process of figuring out a depth chart starts with Organized Team Activities next month, following the draft. The Dolphins begin the first phase of the offseason program April 16, with OTAs opening May 22.
