. Layden. . OG. 59. . Layden Robinson. . 64.

Layden saw something of a regression in his draft stock near the end of his time in College Station. Originally projected as one of the top guards in this class, he is now projected as a day 3 or UDFA guy. That certainly is a fall from grace, but I still believe he has the tools that made him such an attractive prospect.

Robinson brings ideal size and can move well. His best aspect is his strength and, specifically, his hands. Once you're in his grasp, it's hard for you to escape. His issues in the past two years seemed to have more to do with the fact that he would get lost in the play sometimes, having rushers run by him. That is certainly something that can be fixed with coaching.

Someone with Layden's physical profile would be an ideal candidate to round out the offensive line down in Miami. The Dolphins have a less-than-settled situation at guard, and Layden could make a run at the position. A reunion with his old teammate in De'Von Achane would be pretty nice for Aggie fans as well.
