The Miami Dolphins have finalized a trade with the Oakland Raiders to send the 12th overall pick and their second rounder (42nd overall) in exchange for the third overall pick. With their new pick, the Dolphins selected Dion Jordan, outside linebacker from Oregon.
With the pick, the Dolphins have landed one of the best defensive players in the draft -- Jordan was rated ninth on Dan Kadar's big board.
It was widely expected when the trade was announced that the Dolphins would take the third-best offensive tackle in the draft, Lane Johnson from Oklahoma -- but the decision to take Jordan was one of the first big surprises on the opening night of the NFL draft. It remains to be seen how Miami plans to address their left tackle spot after losing Jake Long to free agency.
