I know a lot of us here would like to see the phins trade down and pick-up a 2nd round pick in the draft. In order to do that they have to find a team that is willing to trade up to the #15 spot and also give up their 2nd round pick as well. These are the teams that might be willing to do just that:

Indy - If they feel that a certain OT can come in and start for them at LT as a rookie, and they are unsure he will last until pick 22, then they may be willing to trade up for him. Must protect Peyton Manning at all costs!

Atlanta - definitely needs a pass-rushing DE, and at #27 they may have slim pickings. Not sure if they'd look to move all the way up to #15 as it would probably cost them more than their 1st and 2nd round picks? But they could also be a trade partner.

Tampa - may be willing to move up to get a good pass-rushing DE, if the guy they want is still on the board at #15 and they doubt he'll still be there at #20. Of course they would not surrender their 1st and 2nd without getting more compensation from the phins than just the #15 pick. But another viable partner depending on how the draft shakes out.

What other teams are out there that could end up being trade partners for the Fins?

If JJ Watt is on the board at 15, SD will be calling the Dolphins. They want to move up in-front of the Pats to take him. That is a guarantee.

Atlanta is too conservative to trade up. I do think they'll push though because NO at 24 will want to jump ahead of their other division rival Tampa for a pass rusher. All 3 teams need a pass rusher, so, they'll all be looking to get ahead of each other.

Indy doesn't trade up...ever. They'll stay put and grab whichever lineman is on the board (probably Sherrod).

Or Indy will go receiver.
