The Miami Dolphins are making yet another move on the offensive line. Per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Miami Dolphins have received offensive lineman Greg Mancz from the Baltimore Ravens by swapping late round draft picks.
It’s notable as Miami continues to make a flurry of moves along the offensive line to protect its franchise QB in Tua Tagovailoa. So far, the Dolphins have invested in assets such as Liam Eichenberg and Larnel Coleman through the draft. Furthermore, they have signed players such as Matt Skura and Jermaine Eluemunor while trading for Isaiah Wilson and Greg Little.
Skura and Little are the only outside players remaining with the team.
Ravens traded OL Greg Mancz and a 7th-round pick in 2022 (one acquired from Patriots in Shaun Wade trade) to the Dolphins for Miami's 6th-round pick, per @AdamSchefter.
Mancz was not going to make Baltimore's 53-man roster.

Greg Mancz started off his career in Houston with the Texans and current offensive coordinator George Godsey. He started all 16 games at center with Houston in 2016. More than likely, center is the position Mancz will play with the Dolphins. This puts some added pressure on Michael Deiter and the aforementioned Skura.
The Dolphins have a knack for having versatile lineman along the trenches and Mancz is just that. With Miami’s final preseason game on Sunday against the Bengals, Greg Mancz will be thrown right into the fire to see if he can potentially claim Skura or even Deiter’s spot.
Greg Mancz is a versatile player as he's played Center and RT in Houston. Per @PFF Greg was the number 1 rated blocker in week 1 and the number 6 for week 2 but at RG. Curious to see where they end up paying him pic.twitter.com/Gs9PCSH2xZ

Obviously, the Dolphins offensive line is still in question. Their decision to trade for Greg Mancz only further indicates they’re not keen on the idea of starting the season with what they already have. Even if Mancz works out, there will still be questions.
With any luck, the Dolphins will finally be fortunate enough to have one of their bargain hunts turn out right.
