The Miami Dolphins traded up to the third overall pick to select Dion Jordan, the OLB/DE from Oregon. Miami is in win now mode, more specifically GM Jeff Ireland. He’s spent big money on Mike Wallace, and they must be ready to finalize the trade with Kansas City that has been rumored for Branden Albert.
We’ll have to see just how much Miami gave up to get here. First reaction, great move by Oakland in a draft where they can still get a pretty good player in a flat top of the draft. We’ll see about Miami.
Update: the trade was the 12th and 42nd overall pick to move up to #3.
