Grier has shown that he isn't afraid to move up and down the draft to get what he thinks is value. "IF" the Dolphins were to move down, the Titans look to be in a good spot, and we can probably pick up another draft pick just to move down 4 spots.

Who should the Dolphins call?

The Tennessee Titans are at the top of the list. We’ve just seen the Dolphins and Titans do business recently in a creative swap for OT Isaiah Wilson, a move that flopped hard and left the Dolphins having to wait an extra year for their 7th-round pick featured in the swap. But there’s more business to be had if the Titans are interested in leaping up in front of a slew of teams that could threaten the Titans’ board.

Best of all, Tennessee picks 22nd overall, so you’re only talking about giving up four spots in the order.

Why would Tennessee move? The Isaiah Wilson experience left the Titans with a gaping hole at right tackle and the team has since parted ways with veteran Dennis Kelly, too. So Tennessee is currently slated to start Kendall Lamm at right tackle. That’s not going to work for a team trying to maintain a winning window. Tennessee has three teams between them and Miami: Washington, Chicago and Indianapolis.

Thanks for posting this, Dave -- it is an intriguing thought, and if they are targeting Harris, I think this makes sense. It does seem like the kind of trade that they would discuss ahead of time and then wait and see who is available at the time before pulling the trigger.

On the other hand, if it gets to the mid-teens and Slater is still available, I'd be willing for us to move up to get him. I think a lot of defensive players are going to be going in that range (Paye, Parsons, the Notre Dame linebacker, and some CBs).
