After trading up in the 2nd round with the New York Giants, the dolphins draft Notre Dame OT Liam Eichenberg to continue strengthening the offensive wall in front of Tua Tagovailoa. A three-year starter for the Fighting Irish Eichenberg allowed only 3 sacks and none since 2018.
Over his 2,663 offensive snaps Eichenberg allowed only 50 total pressures, earning a 98.1% efficiency rating. PFF graded him 90.1 for his run blocking, and 83.8 for his senior year. Eichenberg is a perfect candidate to start at RT for the Dolphins in 2021, with Hunt moving inside to RG and Solomon Kindley moving to LG replacing Flowers.
LIAM EICHENBERG COULD START AT RT DAY 1
Draft Network had this to say about him, “Liam Eichenberg is an NFL-ready starting left tackle who should find assimilating to the pro game fairly easy. Eichenberg isn’t the most fleet of foot and speed rushers with wide angles can test him off the edge, but sound fundamentals and footwork should have him positioned to contest such challenges with a fair amount of success“
