Movin' On Up

The Chargers are in the running for the top overall 2016 draft pick, along with the Browns and Titans. All three teams are 3-10.

What does this mean for the 5-8 Dolphins, who currently hold the eighth pick?

A win for the Dolphins probably drops them out of the top ten picks. A win for the Chargers helps the Dolphins move up from eight, while not greatly affecting the Chargers bid for the top pick.

The Dolphins have a chance to get into the top five with a loss and a Ravens win vs. KC, a Cowboys win at home against the Jets, a Bengals loss at the 49ers and a Lions loss at the Saints.

Granted, some of these are a reach, and much is still to be decided in the last three games of the season. 

Yes, I'm a long-time Dolphins fan, but this season is over. It's time to start thinking about re-tooling a team with more holes to fill than available draft picks. A top five pick ensures the Dolphins have bargaining leverage to turn one pick into more down the board.

That's the best scenario. Less desirable is filling holes through free agency, a sore spot in the discussion about the Dolphins!
