The Miami Dolphins have already swapped first-round picks twice this offseason, first shifting again from No. 3 to No. 12 as a part of a blockbuster cope with the San Francisco 49ers, then shifting again as much as No. 6 in an change of future picks with the Philadelphia Eagles. Now, with the 2021 NFL Draft proper across the nook, the Dolphins might be eyeing a 3rd shuffle of Day One picks. In accordance with NFL Community’s Ian Rapoport, Miami has fielded calls from groups trying to purchase No. 6 and is contemplating a transfer again down.
In actuality, most groups are open to, if not exploring, commerce talks for nearly each decide forward of the draft. The lone exceptions, within the case of the 2021 draft, could be the Jaguars, Jets and 49ers — every of whom is ready to take a prime quarterback with a top-three decide. The Dolphins, nonetheless, have already confirmed particularly keen to leap across the board in an effort to construct up each rapid and future capital. So it isn’t unreasonable to suppose they’d critically think about shifting again as soon as extra. Except their authentic commerce with the 49ers was contingent upon their follow-up cope with the Eagles, they’ve already proven a willingness to choose exterior the highest 10.
If the Dolphins really find yourself shifting again, it’s going to more than likely be as a result of a crew selecting exterior the highest 10 is intent — or determined — on touchdown one of many final remaining QB prospects, fairly than Miami merely trying to go on the accessible prospects at No. 6. Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson are extensively anticipated to be taken No. 1 and No. 2, respectively, and the 49ers are all however a lock to draft one in all Justin Fields, Mac Jones or Trey Lance at No. 3. However even when the Falcons take one other QB at No. 4, the Dolphins’ No. 6 decide might show to be the next-best spot for a QB — forward of doubtless QB-hungry groups just like the Lions (No. 7), Panthers (No. 8) and Broncos (No. 9).
Some groups that will have already broached the Dolphins a few transfer up? The Vikings (No. 14), Patriots (No. 15), Washington (No. 19) and Bears (No. 20) might all be available in the market for a prime QB, relying on which one or two can be found.
