Social media is a quick and easy way to get your fill of Miami Dolphins draft news and rumors but we all continually refresh the page hoping for something new.
When it comes to trades, the Miami Dolphins are not making any. Not this week and not likely early next week either. In fact, the Dolphins won’t make any big deals until the draft actually begins, the first five picks are made and the commissioner announces that they are on the clock.
That is when the phones will ring and that is when Chris Grier will answer them. They will either blow him away with a deal he can’t refuse or the Dolphins won’t have anyone on their boards worthy of six overall.
While Miami made two trades already, don’t expect a third happening before the draft. There is too much going on. First, any team wanting to move up to six, probably looking for a quarterback, will have to be sure that a QB is available at six no matter who it is. There are too many questions as to who the 49ers are going to draft and what exactly the Falcons are going to do.
The Bengals haven’t been involved in much trade speculation but that doesn’t mean that as they go on the clock that they are not looking to move out either. Whether Justin Fields, Trey Lance, or Mac Jones are on the board at six, the Dolphins are going to be looking like a team to make another move.

Miami won’t be out of the trade market at six until they make a selection or make a trade but they also will take their time at pick 18 and very well could trade down again should the player they want not be available. In round two, provided they don’t try and move up, I expect the Dolphins to stay where they are and get value for their selections but on day three of the draft, I think we start to see some players being traded to go along with their 5th round pick.
Albert Wilson, Allen Hurns, and Jakeem Grant are all players that could be moved on day three for mid-round draft capital. Miami will move around I suspect on day three but it really is the first two days that many are wondering what will happen.
Dolphins fans need to pay more attention right now, to the Falcons. We know that three QBs will be off the board by four and if Atlanta trades out of four, we know that will be a QB as well. That means Miami will land either Kyle Pitts or Ja’Marr Chase at six and then they may not trade at all.
Either way, don’t expect a trade announcement until draft day when pick five is turned in.
