It’s no secret that the Miami Dolphins need to find an offensive tackle, either in the draft or in the recycling bin that is free agency.  The Dolphins have not shown interest in recently released Tyson Clabo yet.  They’ve also cooled on the idea of signing Eric Winston.  The common theme there is that both players are right tackles.  In my opinion, the Dolphins simply do not trust Jonathan Martin as their left tackle, otherwise, one of those players would’ve been signed.

The former Oklahoma Sooner is 6’6″, 303 lbs.  He’s very athletic for an offensive lineman.  He ran the 40 yard dash in 4.72 seconds at the Combine, following an impressive Senior Bowl.  He was the backup QB in high school and in junior college before converting to tight end.  Then at Oklahoma, he made another move, this time to offensive tackle.  Here’s a look at the highlight reel for Johnson:  (click here for page 2 of this article)
