– The Deal: Dolphins give up 5th, 27th, 56th and a 2021 2nd round pick for the 2nd overall pick
The Dolphins pay a fair price to move up and land their Franchise QB. This was their game plan all-along to stock pile picks and put themselves in a position for a QB with Tua as their top option. Now medicals will be crucial here, but if Tua checks out he’s worth moving up for. His upside is an elite Franchise QB, who could change the entire direction of this team. Miami would still have a number of other premium picks to fill out the rest of their roster.
-The Redskins are giving up the chance to draft Chase Young by trading back, but by trading with the Dolphins they can ensure themselves of landing one of Okudah or Andrew Thomas, who are elite players in their own right. Also the Redskins add three additional premium picks.
-The Deal: Browns give up 10th, 74th, and 91st for the 6th overall pick
-The Browns have to address their LT position this offseason as they can’t allow their lack of a competent option sabotage their offense for another season. While it’s possible one of Wirfs or Wills will still be on the board at the 10th pick, it’s not a guarantee. Giving up a pair of 3rd rounders is worth it for a franchise tackle.
-The Chargers could go a number of different ways if they move back, but I think they take a long hard look at Herbert with this pick. Sixth overall might be a bit too rich for the signal caller, but they should feel better landing him 10th overall.
-The Deal: Eagles trade 21st, 53rd, and their 4th rd pick for the 12th overall pick
-The Eagles have to work on fixing their secondary and this is one of the weaker cornerback classes we’ve seen. Fulton is the 2nd best in the class so Philly needs to be aggressive to try and land him.
-The Deal: Patriots trade 23rd, 87th, 6th rd pick and a 2021 2nd rounder for the 13th overall pick
-The Patriots need to add weapons to help jump start their passing attack next season. They could wait to see what is still available at 23, but by moving up I think they secure one of the more NFL ready receivers in this class.
-The Deal: The Saints trade 24th, 88th and their 4th round pick for the 18th overall pick
-The Saints desperately need another weapon opposite Michael Thomas, and Ruggs gives them an elite deep threat.
– Raiders move back and continue to stockpile assets for Gruden and Mayock. Henderson is a solid option here, and should start as a rookie.
-Colts have traded back the last couple of years and I could see them doing the same again. They still land a quality EDGE rusher in the first round, and get a couple other quality picks as well.
– The Dolphins get to recover some of the assets they gave up to get Tua, and they can still land a top weapon for him.
-With the 2nd selection the Redskins get for passing on Chase Young, they add a playmaker for Dwayne Haskins. Jefferson paired with McLaurin is a nice start for this receiving corps. The Skins still have a way to go to rebuild their offense, but Jefferson is a good start.
The Deal: The Panthers trade 38th and 69th picks for the 31st overall pick
-The Panthers make the move up to land their QB of the future and also secure the important 5th year option. Eason probably won’t start as a rookie, but he could join an impressive offense in 2021. This is a bit rich for the trade, but I think the Panthers would meet this price.
