The Miami Dolphins under Chris Grier, Mike Tannenbaum, and Adam Gase are not afraid to make a big splash in the trade market. Last season they acquired Kiko Alonso, Byron Maxwell, and the 13th overall pick from the Philadelphia Eagles in exchange for the 8th overall pick. Interestingly enough, there are now rumors that the Dolphins are interested in trading away their 1st round selection, in the upcoming NFL draft. Here are 3 potential trades Miami could, and should, consider on April 27th.

- Miami trades: 22nd overall, 2018 2nd rounder, and RG Kraig Urbik
Seattle trades: CB Richard Sherman
We start this off with one of the more unlikely trades. Everyone has heard the rumors of Seattle having Sherman out on the trade market… so why doesn’t Miami go after it? Not only would Seattle gain a second 1st rounder in this years draft, but will also gain an early round pick and offensive line depth – which is sorely needed. While Miami does not have the cap for this trade, unless they could get Tannehill or Suh to restructure, it would be a phenomenal pick up for a CB needy team. Also because if the Dolphins get him New England can’t.
- Miami trades: 22nd overall and 223 overall
New Orleans: trades 32nd overall, 42nd overall, and 196 overall
New Orleans desperately needs defense and trading up here could land them a stud defensive player. While it may cost them a second rounder it could be worth it. If players such as Derek Barnett or Gareon Conley are still on the board the Saints should not be afraid to pull the trigger. As for Miami, it gives them more selections and it allows them to possibly flip more picks either for seasoned vets or for even more picks. Depending on who’s on the clock at 22 this is a trade that would benefit both franchises moving forward.
3.Miami trades: 22nd overall, 2018 2nd rounder and 2018 4th rounder
Arizona trades: 13th overall and 2018 3rd rounder
Arizona will most likely select QB Carson Palmer’s heir in this years draft and they could move back in the first and select him. Arizona is building up for one last run with WR Larry Fitzgerald and Palmer, so why not move back and pick up more picks for next years draft to prepare for the future? Miami could move up and take Temple’s Haason Reddick, Tennessee’s Derek Barnett or Bama’s Reuben Foster. Miami would be giving up quite a bit but in trading for a top 15 prospect who will see a lot of playing time in Miami could pay off.
