While rumors have yet to really take off for the Miami Dolphins there are still lingering plots to be played out. For starters, there is consistent talk that Miami will try and trade up to number 8, their original draft position if Ezekiel Elliot falls. The Browns who hold the 8th spot reportedly want to move out of the position and back a little in the draft.
Elliot would be a force on Miami’s offense but trading up for him isn’t an ideal decision for the Dolphins who will need all of their draft picks this year to fill the holes on their roster.
Another rumor that has made it’s way into the mainstream media world is that Miami is quietly hoping that linebacker Myles Jack slips out of the top ten and falls to 13 where it’s being said Miami would jump on him. The Dolphins apparently are not concerned about his knee issues.
Whether they stay at 13 or move up, it appears that the two players Miami is looking at the most, Jack and Elliot, will be serious targets.
The draft will start at 8:00 eastern tonight and an hour or so later we will have an idea of what the Dolphins will do.
Here are some other rumors that could have major impacts on the outcome of the top 10.
San Diego may not be in love with Jalen Ramsey and could go with Laremy Tunsil. They have a big offensive line need.
The Cowboys who pick 4th could try and trade back even if Ramsey is on the board. The Cowboys could take Ezekiel Elliot later or Myles Jack.
The Giants are being linked to Leonard Floyd.
The Jaguars are now expected to go defensive line.
By the end of the day, every top 10 team should be involved in some kind of rumor about who they will be taking.
