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!

Nobody really knows the trade.

A s S wipe, don't appreciate u using my name TROLL skumbag

guys we lose out on BLUE CHIP players now

Remember i told you guys jared Odrick is a guy the Dolphins love. Keep an eye on him.


hey bobbyd12...I would take the 40th pick over two threes any day.

That 40 pick is gonna b huge tomorrow!!

We might be able to get a 1 next yr if we move back again!

e haven't made a pick and have Dansby, Marshall and Ingognito...and we shed Ginn. we're already a better...much better...team

bobbyd12, miami got the 40th overall pick and ILB Tim Dobbins , which gives miami depth at ILB

Iupati is gone.

I agree San Antonio, wanted Thomas, but maybe/perhaps the Tuna knows more than I

NJ, he was drafted by a 4-3 team. It doesn't validate your argument at all.

don't forget we ALSO lost room in the 4th to the end of the round.

Compare Denver's 2 trades of the 11th pick. They got 2 3rd rounders and 4th rounder and still pick ahead of us.

Armando, is weatherspoon a possibility?

One of the problems with trading down 16 flippin spots is that maybe just maybe the group of players you target just might all be GONE

Why give up our 4th which was higher?? But overall it was great move...Dobbins is a backup, don't know anything about him. Does anyone have any input?

I love the trade!! Whoever used my name at 2121 FU Pus...come out and use ur own name a-hole

I like me some Odrick Mando!!! The guy can actually speak English...very smart

Mark , all i said was he's better suited at DE. give me a break will ya.

I hear a bunch of folks really not getting it here. For Miami to recoup that Second rounder for a total of sliding back 16 spots is phenomenal... that is like saying we got Marshall for 16 draft spots in this years draft and ? in next... we have way to many holes and this draft is far too deep to get hung up on one player. Without this trade...Miami was waiting until the 3rd late tomorrow night to pick after their 12 pick... not good for us.

Mando knows what hes talking about. He predicted Pat White.

bobby, we just got our second back for Marshall...it's a good deal

Damn! there go Mike Iupati. =(

I have to say I am happy with the swap. Gotta mix another drink.

How is it that there are so many people who don't understand what "deep draft" means?

Iupati is gone now.

Now I get it, Jax took THAT guy cause he's demanding a low salary. LMAO.

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

The blog on the Dolphins website says that we got #28, #40 AND A FOURTH ROUND PICK (plus Dobbins). So why are you all saying that it was a swap of 4th round picks? Please explain.

We made a great trade, Parcells knows that the guys is the top 25 are over hyped and command high salaries. With guys in the late 1st round/2nd round sends and is consistent with our message wich is EVERY one competes for their job. Parcells doesnt want overrated kids coming in expecting starting jobs. This is already one of our best drafts when you look at the entirty including the Marshall Trade! Go MIAMI!


Pouncey is the pick for Pitt

sorry bobbyd12, i should've known better.


I think the trifecta will still make another move in this round. Two or three spots only. Of the picks you mentioned I like IUPATI then D. Williams, then Kindle.



I am just glad we got our 2nd back!


Bobby, I'm sure there r many willing Jets fans outside of the draft

2 words: Terrence Cody. The 3-4 run blocking cork plug

Stop your bellyaching the whole world suggested Miami trade down to receive a second round pick. You're idiots if you think this is a bad move. I'll trust the experts on this one

Jerry Hughes as well, Mando.

Mando, can u do something about the AHole using my name at 2121 and 2125???

Were going to end up gettin people that everyone is going to hate and we honestly won't know anything about until next season!

Guys, CNNSI and ProFootballTalk.com are just now reporting that Dolphins have TRADED the 28th pick, the new 2nd round pick, Dan Carpenter and Dolfan Denny to THE BEARS for anti-ugly cream for Brandon Fields. THANK GOD HE IS THE UGLIEST PLAYER IN THE NFL OMFG

I think this was a good pick up for the niners...

I hope Kyle Wilson is there at 28 too...

Is Dobbins better than Channing Crowder?

that dude's girlfriend is really fat...

It was a good move period...there is so much talent left guys, if you are worried now you don't know football

If Hughes is taken before us I'll be pissed. I don't think we got the value we should have. I don't want Kindle, Mays or Tebow.

So basically we got Brandon Marshall for next years 2nd pick...Not bad!!!!

Mays or Kindle to Atlanta

And word on Ronnie trades for picks Mando?


What's up guys?!! Great, great trade.

I wonder if that trade happens without the media rumors of the Dolphins liking Ryan Mathews. Peter King had him going to the Phins in his mock, and Armando also wrote that the Phins were interested in Mathews. I think the media had a role in this trade.

You really think Tate and D. Thomas are still going to be there at 28 better yet at 40. Gresham will be a bengal....would have been a great pick for us...he would start from day 1

Careful regulars... the trolls have invaded the site...... They have already hijacked several names and made bogus posts... To bad some folks are just that damn shallow.

COWKILLA well said...and we have a reason to tune in tomorrow.

Weatherspoon to the Falcons ????
