Trading back could net the Miami Dolphins a king’s ransom in return.
Option #2: Trade back in the Draft
The net gain on trading back from the third overall gain could be great. It could land them a player like Devonta Smith or Ja’Marr Chase plus a future first-round pick.
It is clear that with as great a prospect that Sewell is, there will be calls made from other teams, but if the Jets take Sewell, quarterback-needy teams will be calling to land Wilson or Fields.
In 2012, the Washington Football Team traded away three first-round picks and one-second-rounder in exchange for the number two overall pick, in which they selected Robert Griffin III. The Los Angeles Rams, received the 6th pick in the 2012 draft, among the other first-rounders.
In 2016 the Rams traded away two first-rounders, two-second-rounders, and two third-rounders to the Tennessee Titans to move up to the first overall spot and select Jared Goff. When there is a quarterback on the line, teams will pay the premium for the “most important position in football.”
If the Dolphins can land a top-10 pick along with another first and second-rounder it could be an absolute win. Because they could land an impact player to add to this playoff roster.
