Do Dolphins make some moves with three first round picks?
One of those teams that could be looking to make a move in the first round is the Miami Dolphins. After a few trades last year, they enter this draft with three first round picks at fifth overall, 18th overall and 26th overall.
The Dolphins were active this free agency but still have question marks at offensive tackle and quarterback. The team still has Ryan Fitzpatrick on the roster but he isn’t a long term solution at the position.
Whether it is a smokescreen, or the Dolphins aren’t sure what they are going to do, the direction they are expected to go seems to be changing pretty frequently. Recently, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network tweeted that the Dolphins may be looking to move up from five to three for an offensive tackle.
If this was the direction they took, depending on what they gave up, they could then hope one of the top quarterbacks, like Justin Hebert, slides down to 18. Since they are a division rival of the Bills, fans should pay close attention to what Miami does Thursday night.
