According to Ian Rapoport, the Dolphins have called the teams ahead of them at No. 5 and are interested in potentially moving up to No. 3 overall to take an offensive tackle.
Michael Lombardi confirms that the Dolphins have interest in trading up ahead of the Giants for an offensive tackle.
The Lions have said they’re more than willing to move down. The Giants have also expressed a willingness to move down, but they seem to be targeting an offensive tackle as well.
The order depends on who you ask but Miami is likely targeting one of those four. Thomas and Becton are among the two that have been linked to them.
This has been rumored as a possibility for the Dolphins as the draft approaches, but it’s interesting considering Miami needs a quarterback and gave Alabama QB Tua Tagovailoa a passing grade on his physical.
However, the Dolphins might be more confident in their ability to get a quarterback later with an early run expected on offensive tackles.
With a war chest of draft picks, including three first-round picks and two second-round picks this year and more in 2021, the Dolphins are poised to be able to do just about whatever they want in terms of moving around in the draft.
We’ll have more on the Dolphins as the news is available.
