Poll: Should Dolphins trade No. 19 pick?
By James Walker
The NFL draft is just three days away. Expect the phone lines across the league to be busy this week as teams try to improve their draft position to get the players they want.
This brings us to our latest Miami Dolphins poll. Here is the question: What should Miami do with the No. 19 overall pick?
Depending on how the board falls, the Dolphins could have options in the first round. The first option is to use the pick. Miami has several needs at positions such as right tackle, guard and middle linebacker. Should the Dolphins address one of these needs at No. 19?
Or should Miami trade the pick. The Dolphins have seven picks in this draft and could have the flexibility to move up for a higher selection. Will new general manager Dennis Hickey make a splash with a draft-day trade?
The Dolphins also can move down the draft board. Hickey said last week that he would like more picks at this disposal. There could be several teams in the 20s looking to move up and trade Miami multiple selections. The risk of moving back is getting a lower-rated player on the Dolphins’ draft board.
