Dolphins move up 18 slots in fourth round


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

DANA POINT, Calif. -- Details of the Miami Dolphins' trade with the Oakland Raiders are coming to light.

The Dolphins confirmed they shipped center Samson Satele to the Raiders for an undisclosed draft pick, yet more was involved. We reported here earlier the deal included a sixth-round draft choice and a flop of picks within a round, but we didn't know which round.

David White of the San Francisco Chronicle and Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald both are reporting the teams flipped fourth-round picks.

That's an improvement of 18 slots for the Dolphins. The Raiders had the eighth pick in the fourth round, while the Dolphins had the 26th.
