Scenario: Making history
A while ago I wrote about how the Miami Dolphins had a chance at making history in this draft and that is before you even get a chance to see how these draft picks turn out. As far as I can tell there has only been one time where an NFL team has had 4 first round picks in a single draft.
That team was the New York Jets in the 2000 NFL Draft and that class worked out pretty well for the Jets. It isn’t often that you land three Pro Bowlers in a single draft, but when you have four first round picks it isn’t that hard to hit like that.
So, by trading up just 10 spots the Dolphins get a chance to fill whatever fourth need they have and just take BPA for the rest of the draft and hope to hit some diamonds, sounds good to me.
What trade makes sense:
Tennessee Titans get: two 2nd round picks (39, 56)
Miami Dolphins get: 1st round (29), 3rd round (93)
The Titans get three 2nd round picks and the Dolphins get a historic haul of 1st round picks, which seems to work out for everyone as long as the Titans feel comfortable assuming the players graded as first rounders would all likely be gone by their first choice.
Quick 2020 NFL Mock Draft:
39. D’Andre Swift RB, Georgia
56. Zack Baun EDGE/LB, Wisconsin
61. Jalen Hurts QB, Oklahoma
93. Troy Pride Jr. CB, Notre Dame
Who does the trade favor according to the updated pick values: Titans +6 (245-251)
