AFJF Posted April 9, 2015 Share Posted April 9, 2015 http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/nfl-draft-scout/25141214/nfl-draft-miami-dolphins-considering-trading-into-the-top-10 With the free agent signing of star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh and trade for wideout Kenny Stills, the Miami Dolphins attacked the offseason. The aggressive approach may be a sign of things to come as Miami is already reaching out to other clubs in an effort to gauge what it might cost to move into the top 10 this year, NFLDraftScout.com has learned. With only six picks in 2015, the Dolphins don't have much ammunition. That hasn't stopped the 'Fins from fishing. The Dolphins appear to be targeting another playmaking wide receiver with West Virginia's Kevin White ranking highest on their board, sources suggest. If it happens, Miami's trade could mimic a similar move as the one division rival Buffalo completed a year ago, jumping up to No. 4 overall to land Sammy Watkins. Whereas the Bills continue to struggle at quarterback, the Dolphins boast a quality young passer in Ryan Tannehill to build around. Miami's interest in adding more talent to its receiver corps is no surprise. Over the past week, the Dolphins hosted free agents Michael Crabtree (San Francisco 49ers), Greg Jennings (Minnesota Vikings) and Wes Welker (Denver Broncos) after sending former expensive free agent addition Mike Wallace and a seventh round pick this year to the Vikings for a fifth round pick. White, specifically, is interesting. At 6-foot-3, 215 pounds, he's bigger than Alabama's Amari Cooper and after wowing scouts at the Combine with a 4.35-second showing in the 40-yard dash, he's convinced some that he possesses the most upside of any receiver in the 2015 draft class. It is hard to question that after White exploded for 109 catches for 1,447 yards and 10 scores last season, improving his stock more than any other prospect regardless of position. In Stills (6-foot, 194 pounds) and steady sophomore Jarvis Landry (5-foot-11, 204), the Dolphins boast two solid pass-catchers already. Neither, however, possesses White's combination of size and speed. Given the potential vulnerability of the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots at cornerback after the losses of 2014 starting cornerbacks Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner, it wouldn't be surprising to see Miami target a wide receiver in the first round - whether the 'Fins stand pat at No. 14 as projected or aggressively move up.
