Rob Rang of CBS Sports reports that the Dolphins have been reaching out to teams drafting in the top-10 about the possibility of trading up and what the asking price would be.
According to Rang’s source, the Dolphins appear to be targeting play-making wide receiver such as West Virginia’s Kevin White, who is reportedly the highest ranked receiver on their draft board.
A previous report had said that Miami was willing to pay Crabtree a $3 million salary, but he is apparently seeking a better offer.
It’s worth mentioning that the Dolphins have only six draft picks to work with in 2015, so it’s hard to say how high they would be willing to move up for a receiver. Depending on when the first receiver comes off the board, there’s a chance that Alabama WR Amari Cooper and Louisville WR DeVante Parker could still be on the board at No. 8 overall.
We have the Dolphins taking Parker at No. 14 in our recently updated 2015 NFL Mock Draft.
