The Miami Dolphins made a big splash this offseason in signing defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh to a massive six-year, $114 million deal.
Could they be eying another splash in the draft?
According to Rob Rang of NFLDraftScout.com and CBSSports.com, the Dolphins have reached out to teams with draft picks in the Top 10 to gauge the cost of trading up.
Miami only has six picks in this year’s draft. The Dolphins have a two fifth round picks and a first, second, fourth and sixth round pick. With so few selections, they may lack the draft capital needed to move up unless they are willing to part with 2016 selections as well.
The Dolphins need some offensive help to aid quarterback Ryan Tannehill. They could be looking to move up to grab either West Virginia receiver Kevin White or Alabama receiver Amari Cooper. Miami has looked into several free agent wide outs recently with Greg Jennings, Michael Crabtree and Wes Welker all visiting the team.
If the Dolphins make the move, it shows a significant urgency to win now. With Suh’s contract set to take an enormous chunk of the team’s salary cap after this season, it will be more difficult to piece a team around him in future years.
