Best option in first round

It's looking like all the mock drafts have the Dolphins taking Xavier Rhodes at 12, which scares me, because he's a second round talent and no sure thing. The fins are super shallow at CB, and drafting a player who isn't a lock is never a good proposition. So it's looking like trading up to draft Milliner is the best option for the Fins. Here are a couple scenarios for this to happen:

1. Trade #12 pick and #54 pick to Browns for their #6 pick. According to the draft value chart (http://walterfootball.com/draftchart.php) this is a fair trade. The Browns wouldn't mind dropping to 12 to pick up one of the two elite guards, and an extra round 2 pick.

2. Since the Browns may be interested in Milliner themselves, trade up to #5 with the Lions, for our 12, 54 and a 5th rounder. Lions have lots of holes and could use the extra picks.

I feel that getting Milliner, who's an elite zone coverage CB, is the best option for the Fins in the first round, mainly because it's our biggest hole and getting Rhodes or Trufant at 12 is a reach. While picking up the best available corner with our first pick in the second round isn't a bad strategy, I think locking up an elite talent at the position while sacrificing our other 2nd round pick is the best way to go.
