Dolphins trade 1st pick San Diego Chargers

The night just got longer for the Dolphins. And their quiver of arrows to use in this draft just got more full.

They have traded the No. 12 overall selection in the first round to San Diego for No. 28 overall. The Dolphins also gave up their fourth round pick (110 overall) and a sixth round pick (173 overall).

The Dolphins got the San Diego second-round pick, No. 40 overall, and a fourth round pick (126 overall). There is also a rumor, unconfirmed, the Dolphins got linebacker Tim Dobbins.

Dobbins is now oficially confirmed as coming to the Dolphins.

The Chargers used the pick to select RB Ryan Mathews of Fresno State.

Miami's pick will now come around 10:30 p.m.

The Dolphins have a total of 10 picks now in this draft. As I wrote today, this helps Miami pick up not one starter in a deep draft, but two starters in a deep draft.

I like it!

I love it. That 4th is huge because there will still be some very good players left.

The got 40th overall (2nd), swapped 4th round picks (moved down), and gave up a 6th rounder.

Player included or not, this doesn't sound right.

Good night Jim...say hi to Omar Kelly for us

Man what a stupid move By the chargers lol, thanks for the gift! Dude we got two picks + a 4th rounder

bye bye graham, I told you he's a 4-3 DE. kindle could go to NE.

I'm missing JT already ....

T Mays will be a Dolphin. Bill told me yesterday at lunch.

brandon graham

glad to have that 2nd pick back though, plus an additional 4th. I'm starting to hate this draft format, I dont' have the patience for it!

When is Thomas and/or Morgan gonna be gone

Mando, please explain the trade with San Diego.
Did we swap 1st rounders, get their 2nd(40th overall), get dobbins, and swap 4th round picks with them as well?

I am with Mando. Absolutely huge. They got the Marshall picks back essentially. Some good players will be there too.

This tells me the FO didnt see a guy at 12 that was special. Great we got the 2nd rd pick back.....with 12 picks i could see us moving up a couple of spots to get the guy we want. Nice job FO

Fantastic Deal!

Great move 11 picks now in a deep draft.

FB we traded away Dobbins i believe.


Wait, did we just swap 4s or did we get a 4?

Who the French toast is Dobbins??

broncos are freakin loaded!!

Dez is looking more and more like a steal. I'd love to get him with the 28th pick.

I agree...great move Phins!!!

I feel like I just had sex!!!!

I like this move. Hope Kindle falls to 28th.

IUPATI with the 28th pick!

28 and 2nd and a 4th and a 6th!!!!!!!

I am so happy right now that I can blow someone!!!!!!

I am so happy right now that I can blow someone!!!!!!

wiki says tim dobbins a 5th round pick in 2006 draft traded to miami dolphins

You also told us he would go in the last third of the draft...

if we get mays i will poop in my pants

Earl thomas to Seattle fellas!

My previous post info comes via nfl.com

No nevermind. We got Dobbins. 55tackles last year 1 sack, 1 forced fumble, 1 int.

I say the move now is to package our new late first round pick with the new second round pick for Vincent Jackson. Then, we package Jackson and Ronnie Brown to Seattle for Charlie Whitehurst. OMG THAT WOULD UNBELIEVABLE

we have 12 pick...just like the patsies

Tebow would be great in our wildcat! And parcells would love him!

Kindle at #28 Mays at #40 makes me all warm and fuzzy feeling inside!!!!

We got Dobbins? He is an ILB for the Chargers

Great Deal!! I love it..Now I have to stay up!!!

Tebow my ass.Why do you want this bible thumping azzho in your locker room. If he was outside my house on fire I would not piss on him.

So we didn't actually get a 4th then.

Mikefins. Tebow are you a that dumb, seriously???

Someone at the Herald needs to get the EXACT details on this trade

WTF do we have now?

I'm very happy!!! I have a chubby

Bobbyd12 Wheres Pricemaster! Lol

Come on man, can someone at the Herald get a handle on what we've got now?

If you can't see the value of adding Tebow to our line up utilizing his skills in the wild-cat package you're an idot!

I still love getting the 2nd rounder, but it suddenly isn't as great as I thought.

This was a great trade! I love it!!!!

I just wanted a 2nd and we got a very high 2nd round pick and a 4th!!!

Parcells is a genius! We will get 3 players for the 12th pick!!!

Way to Front Office now this is how u build a team!

Scooter don't be so classless.

Missed out on Thomas. Will haunt us. Don't need another year of teams having one to two minute touchdown drives.

Now we can get Dez at 28. Mays at 40. Dikindabutt

Earl Thomas is a Seahawk

OK, the details of the trade are on the post now.

Sucks too see a safety go when it's such a need for us.

My nutz just crumbled!!! My 2nd team r cards and we have to face the dude I wanted...

1 bradford
2 suh
