2013 NFL Draft results: Dion Jordan to Miami a 'great, bold move'

Jaime Valdez-USA TODAY Sports

What does SB Nation's Dolphins blog have to say about the Dion Jordan pick?

The Miami Dolphins pulled off the first stunner of the 2013 NFL Draft. They traded up to the No. 3 spot with the Oakland Raiders to select Oregon DE/OLB Dion Jordan. Let's take a look at what our Dolphins blog, The Phinsider, has to say about the pick. Here's Kevin Nogle's take:

The Miami Dolphins have made their first selection of the 2013 NFL Draft. With the third overall pick, after a trade with the Oakland Raiders, Miami selected defensive end Dion Jordan from Oregon.

The team also entered the draft with several needs to be addressed. With the pick, the Dolphins still could be looking at offensive tackle, cornerback, defensive end, tight end, wide receiver, and running back on the day.

The Dolphins gave up the 12th and 42nd picks to move up to the third spot, which was a small price to pay, considering what they got for him:

Personally, I love this move. There is a chance to bust, but this is a GREAT bold move by the Dolphins. Getting to move up to the third pick and grab Dion Jordan for just, essentially, the 42nd pick, is amazing.
