The Dolphins would have to give up 3 or 4 picks to move up to #1, which if I had to guess would be #12 and both their 2nd rounders at a minimum.Quote:
April 12: "The Dolphins have Luke Joeckel and Eric Fisher rated considerably higher than Lane Johnson. As such, the Dolphins don't appear to be all that interested in trading up for Johnson as has been speculated around the league in recent days, but are very keen to move up for either Joeckel or Fisher. In fact, according to sources the Dolphins won't rule out trading all the way up to the #1 pick to get one of those guys if thatís what it takes." - GBN Report
Speculation, but let's say for the moment Joeckel or Fisher falls to #3 where the Raiders are sitting, then I could easily see the Dolphins trading a 2nd rounder to the Raiders ( Oak doesn't have a 2nd round pick ) to move up to #3 to take one of those Tackles. But, in doing so, they probably miss out on the chance to get one of those top 2 or 3 CB's and they do need one. This is going to be interesting.
So essentially we r stuck with disgruntled Albert and #1 pick
^^^^^^ yup....draft smith and trade him!!!!!!!!
In this draft being sorta lackluster I would swap first rounders and take what we gave up to get Alex Smith I wouldn't be to upset with that
I dont mind trading down but only at the right price. This draft may not be top heavy but we can get an impact player at #1 cuz theirs alteast kne star in this draft. I dont want to trade down just to trade down and lose out on a sure pick. Miami would need to give us this years 1st and top 2nd and nexts years 1st. Or this years and next years 1st eound and this years top 2 rd and maybe a late round pick to trade to the first pick.
“I've got enough ammunition to get to the first pick if I wanted to, but I don't see myself doing that, personally,” Ireland said, in the Palm Beach Post.
Sure I'd love for the Chiefs to trade down and get extra picks, but Branden Albert's pig-headed stance has put the Chiefs in a position to where they'd be better served to stay put at #1 and just take either Joeckel or Fisher. Besides, the Chiefs are somewhere around 3 million under the cap & you can bet that Albert is wearing the bullseye, as far as shedding cap space goes, and a draft-day trade regarding Albert is highly likely.
What if this regimes plans have been to drum up interest in the 2 tackles so we can trade down? We don't really need a Lt we have Albert and maybe he's just playing the game to help the chiefs also. Only one more week till we all find out!!!
