A Trade Back Could Be The Best Scenario
A trade back could end up the dream scenario for the Fins
The 2017 NFL Draft is quickly approaching, and there is no doubt that all the NFL football fans around the world are anxiously awaiting to see how it all shakes out.
The Dolphins won’t be drafting in the beginning half of the first round, but they definitely have a good chance to land a starting caliber player with the 22nd overall pick… and that chance will be nearly as good if they get the opportunity to trade back.
While Miami can draft a very good player with their first round pick, they have more than one hole to fill, and this draft is considered one of the deepest defensive drafts in recent memories. Since one player at the #22 pick isn’t going to turn the Dolphins into a Super Bowl team, my hope is Miami gets lucky with an offer to trade back.
Trade back could be what the doctor ordered to fill all Miami’s holes
If there isn’t a run on QB’s, and one of the top 3 is left on the board, the teams selecting behind them might make a move to trade up. The Texans seem to be the best chance for that. With that being said, Miami can trade back a few spots, and in the process get an extra 2nd or 3rd round pick, to add to their arsenal of draft picks. Either of these extra picks would go a long way in finding another quality starter. And they need all the help they can get to fill all these holes.
This is simple math folks. They have more holes than they have in premium picks. I know Miami isn’t in control, but as I pray to the gods of draft luck, I find myself hoping more for a trade than anything. Of course, you then have to worry about Miami pulling a Jeff Ireland of 2013 and striking out with a load of picks. But I guess I’ll have to make my pray a ‘two-parter’. What are the rest of the Miami Dolphins News fans thoughts about whether or not Miami should trade back in the first round to pick up some extra draft selections?
