Miami Dolphins 2021 Draft: What it could look like to trade 6 for 19
By Brian Miller
As the Miami Dolphins continue to be in media speculated trade scenarios, there are some who believe that Miami could get calls from Chicago or Washington.
Fans would not likely want to see this scenario play out on draft day. The Dolphins, holding pick six overall, trading with Washington or Chicago who owns the 19th and 20th picks respectively. Miami would drop out of the top ten, out of the top 15, and their first pick would be number 18.
If Chris Grier took this type of trade we can expect a massive haul of draft picks and likely players as well. The trade that moved San Francisco from 12 to three includes three total first-round selections. That was for nine spots. This would be for 13 or 14 spots. Expect more.
Miami would give up any shots at Kyle Pitts, Ja’Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle, and DeVonta Smith. They would likely miss out on linebacker Micah Parsons as well. Miami could use some of the draft capital to swing a move back up to get who they wanted but they would be playing with fire if they have their hearts set on one or two guys.
If we take a look at what a trade like this might look like, we would have to figure out who would be available when Miami picked at those spots. Potentially a back-to-back situation at 18 and 19.
As we said earlier today, the first three picks are going to be a quarterback. Atlanta could go quarterback as well or they could take Kyle Pitts. Here is a look at how the draft could shape up ahead of the 18th pick.
1: Trevor Lawerence – Jacksonville
2: Zach Wilson – NY Jets
3: Mac Jones – San Francisco
4: Kyle Pitts – Atlanta
5: Ja’Marr Chase – Cincinnati
6: Justin Fields – Chicago/Washington
7: Penei Sewell – Detroit
8: Jaycee Horn – Carolina
9: Trey Lance – Denver
10: Patrick Surtain II – Dallas
11: Rashawn Slater – NY Giants
12: Jaylen Waddle – Philadelphia
13: Christian Darrisaw – Los Angeles Chargers
14: Kwity Paye – Minnesota
15: DeVonta Smith – New England
16: Caleb Farley – Arizona
17: Micah Parsons – Raiders

This brings us to pick number 18. One of the players mentioned above will likely fall to 18 but realistically they should all be gone by this pick. At 18, the Dolphins would have their choice of Azeez Ojulari, an edge rusher out of Georgia, Alabama running back Najee Harris, linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah, offensive tackle Teven Jenkins who some believe to be the third-best offensive lineman in this draft class. Miami Hurricane edge rushers Jaelen Phillips or Gregory Rousseau.
The Dolphins would theoretically be able to land two of those players within three picks of each other but clearly, it would be disappointing to lose out on some of the best receivers in this draft. That being said, what if the Dolphins don’t really want a receiver? If that is the case, then trading all the way down to 19 or 20 makes sense.
Truthfully, if the Dolphins were going to do something like this I would hope they would move to number nine with Denver first and then move back from nine to 19. The draft compensation may not be as high but it would be two consecutive trades that would net them more for the future that could be used to jump back up to grab someone who may fall into the mid-teens.
