Why would the Dolphins, led by Bill Parcells, trade away draft picks in a deep draft, like this upcoming draft on Thursday at 7:30 p.m., which they never do? Everyone was surprised when they traded picks for Brandon Marshall. Why would they trade for a DE/OLB that is coming off an injury just one year ago?
The reason is, Bill Parcells has been looking for a player to be his Demarcus Ware and Lawrence Taylor. He could always draft a guy he can call his own, or he could trade for an already proven pass rusher.
Osi would have to make a position change, but he is the perfect OLB that Parcells looks for. If the price isn't too high on Osi, and they would take a fourth round pick or even a pick next year, I could see Parcells and company close the deal. If the price is a second round pick, which Miami no longer has due to trading for No. 1 WR Brandon Marshall, then Miami will address the need for an OLB in Round 1 of the NFL Draft.
Miami always could swap first round picks with the Giants and move down to No. 15, which Miami is rumored to do anyways. The trade would most likely be No. 12 and a fifth round pick for No. 15 and Osi Umenyiora. (This isn't a real offer, just my opinion.)
According to Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald , he has received messages of Miami making another move "within the upcoming hours or days." Although he thinks it's a Ronnie Brown or Justin Smiley trade, I think it could be a trade for Osi Umenyiora.
