The #31 pick could become real valuable. Any team trying to trade back into round 1, that's how you steal a #1 for 2014.
This would directly conflict with Ireland's plan of quality over quantity.
Although It'd be awfully nice to get a team like Jacksonville's 2014 1st rounder for #31 if Geno Smith or Matt Barkley take a tumble. Still, I think around #20 you're starting to lose guys that Miami covets. The Coopers, the Eiferts, the Pattersons, the Rhodes.
The Dolphins need to draft at least one player that comes into the league better than half the players at his position. When Ireland is concerned more picks just means more stiffs in camp.
#31, A 2nd rounder, and a 4th next yr and I'd pull the trigger.
4 picks between picks 31-62 in a draft where alot of people say they don't see a whole lot of difference between the first 25 players and the second could be huge.
I'd also do it for #31 and next yrs 1st.

2014 Mock Draft
1. Zack Martin - OT/OG - Notre Dame
2. Chris Borland - ILB - Wisconsin
3. C.J. Fiedeorowicz - TE - Iowa
4. Trai Turner - OG - LSU
5. Brandon Thomas - OT/OG - Clemson
6. Storm Johnson - RB - South Florida
7. Calvin Barnett - DT - Oklahoma State
Id rather have Trent Richardson then Austin. J. Jones needs a QB like Matt Ryan to throw him the ball and so does Cleveland.
I would trade down with 49ers only if you can draft 2 starters better then whats on the roster. If not it would be GM disaster. Look and see who might be available and compare for the following positions CB, S, DE, OT, TE. Then you better be pretty sure there is no run on players targeted and be ready to move up.
