Miami jumped up nine spots to pick up a defensive end from Oregon who may not make it to training camp, but they didn't give up much for him. The Raiders only required one of two second round picks the Dolphins were holding onto at the time and a switch of the teams' first rounders. Miami picked Dion Jordan with the third overall selection.
Experts say the Fins' number 2 selection, Jamar Taylor, CB, was a safer pick, as he is expected to be good enough to join the team and solidify a portion of the secondary on day one.
The offensive lineman picked in the third round, Dallas Thomas, is expected to be better at guard than tackle and the team really needs a left tackle to replace Jake Long. According to reports, Miami is working on a deal with free agent OT Eric Winston. Click Here. They may also be still working out a trade with Kansas City for Branden Albert, which looked dead after the draft. Word is KC would take a second rounder in 2014. Click Here.
