The Dolphins committed robbery last night as they traded for Josh Rosen during the second round. The Dolphins were set to pick at #48 but traded down with the Saints for the #62 and #202 pick and also acquired a second round pick for next year. Rosen was acquired for the #62 pick and will come in and compete for the starting spot with Ryan Fitzpatrick.
With their third round selection, the Dolphins selected guard, Michael Deiter. He has played multiple positions on the offensive line, but will probably be the starting left guard when the season begins. The Dolphins needed to add some talent along the offensive line and Deiter appears to be a solid selection.

The second round of the 2019 NFL Draft featured the Miami Dolphins trading their pick to the Arizona Cardinals for quarterback Josh Rosen. As they now come back in the third round, the team is back…
The trade became final with the Dolphins on the clock to make their second-round pick, and it followed a day of speculation about a deal. Rosen wasn’t surprised – he quickly posted a photo of himself in a Dolphins uniform on Instagram.
“He was always a guy that has had a ton of talent,” Miami general manager Chris Grier said. “He’s a smart guy. He can throw it. What everyone always liked about him was how cerebral he was. It’s a young talented guy at a premium position.”
And he has a first-round pedigree – a rarity with the Dolphins. Since 1983, they have drafted only one quarterback in the first round – Tannehill in 2012.
Flores will decide whether Fitzpatrick or Rosen should start this year, said Grier, who didn’t seem concerned about a potential quarterback controversy.
“Ryan Fitzpatrick has been great,” Grier said. “He’s got personality. He’s a character, a great leader. I think the two of them will be good in the room.”
With a multitude of needs, the Dolphins took Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins in the first round Thursday. In the third round Friday night they selected versatile offensive lineman Michael Deiter, a three-year starter for Wisconsin and a second-team All-American as a senior.
Before making the deal for Rosen, the Dolphins traded down in the second round. As part of that move, they also sent their fourth-round pick to the New Orleans Saints for a sixth-round choice this year and a second-round pick next year.
The Dolphins now have 10 picks in 2020, not including two possible compensatory choices. They go into the final day of this year’s draft in the market for an edge rusher.
