Miami Dolphins

Having traded for QB Daunte Culpepper and signed CB Will Allen, S Renaldo Hill and LT L.J. Shelton, the Dolphins are looking to take the best available player or perhaps trade down; they have talked to a number of teams about deals. The team hopes a trading partner falls in love with one of the cornerbacks or wide receivers who are expected to be available at the 16th spot
first I've read about them actually talking to other teams about dealing down. Maybe Nick can get another 2nd yet.

Cool, cool..... While he's at it, can he get us a sixth, too?

To me it just seems the value is better towards the end of the 1st round. That's why trading down make sense, but the flip side is it doesn't make sense for someone to trade up. I hope we can get a deal done, but I'm not holding my breath.

yes that's definitely the problem. for us to trade down, we're going to have to have a big-time player drop to us. but knowing coach saban, he'd just draft that big-time player...

How great would it be to trade down, pick up either Donte Whitner or Antonio Cromartie, and have Sinorice Moss fall into our laps in the 2nd round (pick from trading down)?

Trading down is something that I hope we do. Having 6 picks and 3 of them are in the 7th just aren't gonna cut it.

I too hope we trade down, with so much talent in the first round we could easily trade down, gain a pick, and still land a playmaker at almost any given position...

I want us to trade down and get mangold. He is a sure fire pick. There is no doubt he would anchor our line for the next decade. I don't know if I am that confident in any other pick in the late 1st round.

Trading down and still landing a player like Mangold would be sweet. Add another second round talent and a late round and we'd have a successful draft. That LSU dt in the fourth maybe?

Would be great to trade down..
I'm feeling like there's around 50 1st round talent guys in this years draft..too deep

I also think trading down would be nice...picking up a guy like Mangold later on and also getting a 2nd.

I'm sure it he could get us a 2nd and 6th round pick.

That would be great. I'm guessing they are lining up a few teams as we speak, but they are probably "contingent" trades. In other words, they'll trade with us IF the player they want drops to us in our spot. I'll be rooting for a big name player to slide down to us (not to draft necessarily - unless it's a need), but so that we can trade down and pick up another pick or two in the process and still get some top talent on the first day. I think Nick will be working the phones hard when we go on the clock in the 1st. If we can get 3 or more picks in first 3 rounds rather than just 2, we'll get most of our needs filled this year with some decent talent. If we have to stick with our current picks, we will have to do some searching in the late F/A market.

The nice thing is, unlike years past I won't be screaming "WTF?" It's good to have Saban!

I would love to trade down, lets hope Saban and Mueller can get a deal done.

We might then draft Carpenter in the 1st Gabe Watson/Jon Scott in the 2nd in the 3rd McClover/Rocky Mcintosh/Leon Williams/(we need depth at LB)de Mark Anderson or a safety Bullocks Watkins Darrel Hunter,in the 4th id trade down and draft a cb/OL/ Devin Hester and with the 3 7th rounders Skyler Green or Wille Reid Pierre Woods lb/de and BPA.
