Chicago Bears potential rumored draft partners: The Miami Dolphins
The third and final team in the news as of late, in regards to moving back, is somewhat of a surprise.
The Miami Dolphins have already made two enormous moves in the draft. First, they moved back with the San Francisco 49ers, giving up that third overall selection. Immediately after that deal, though, Miami moved right back up to no. 6 in a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Now, they are reportedly looking to trade back once more. But, why?
The Dolphins are sensing the pressure from other teams which are quarterback-needy. Who knows. Maybe we’re in for history, here, where five quarterbacks go in the first five picks — which would of course include at least one trade.
If the Bears felt they needed to move all the way up to pick no. 6, it better be for good reason. I would certainly hope it isn’t for the fifth and final first-round quarterback. Instead, the sensible scenario would be seeing Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields on the board at the sixth pick.
If Fields was still available, then he’s well-worth the Bears moving up to number six. If it’s someone like Mac Jones, then a trade of that magnitude may not be worthwhile.
