Dolphins to mount late push for top pick

Dolphins to mount late push for top pick … The story had kind of gone quiet for several weeks, but there are reports out of Miami that the Dolphins are in the process of making a late push to try and acquire the #1 pick in this month’s draft from Cincinnati. The Dolphins target, not surprisingly would be LSU QB Joe Burrow, who has never made much of a secret of the fact that he doesn’t really want to play for the Bengals. It isn’t clear whether Cincinnati would have any intention of even listening to offers for the top pick; however, if any team could put together a package to tweak the Bengals interest its the Dolphins who have three opening round picks this year including the 5th selection overall, as well as two more #1s in 2021. For good measure, Miami’ also has an extra second rounder in each of the next two drafts. In the meantime, there are also unconfirmed reports that Washington is again letting it be known around the league that the 2nd pick overall could be available for the right price. That’s a little surprising given that by staying at #2, the Redskins would almost assuredly get Ohio State DE Chase Young, the consensus top non-QB prospect for the upcoming draft. However, the Redskins already have a pretty good defensive front and might like to add extra picks to revitalize a moribund offense. Stay tuned! Just 22 days to go.
