Brian Flores hints Miami Dolphins are willing to trade No. 3 pick for pick within top 10

1 Min Read

Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores indicated that the team could conceivably trade the third overall pick in next month’s draft to another team selecting within the top 10 choices.

The Dolphins acquired that top pick in a deal with the Houston Texans, and they also hold the Texans’ second-round selection.

With three standout quarterbacks at or near the top of the prospect rankings, the Dolphins could collect plenty of assets from another team that needs a signal-caller for the future.

The Dolphins themselves are no longer in the market for a starting quarterback, with Tua Tagovailoa set to enter his second season with the team as its starter.

The Dolphins could also seemingly trade the No. 3 pick in a package for a star.

Since their season has ended, the Dolphins have been the subject of plenty of trade speculation regarding disgruntled Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson.

However, the Dolphins’ front office has indicated that Tagovailoa is its quarterback, which would seemingly put an end to such talk.
