The NFL Draft is 3 weeks away and as of right now, the Dolphins have seven draft picks. The team would like add some more, possibly a fourth rounder, to the mix which means the team would love to move back in the first round. The team holds the 22nd overall pick and would have to find a willing trade partner, as long as they get some good value from the other team. Last year we saw Laremy Tunsil fall to the team, but don't expect any kind of scenario like that to happen again.

You can check out that story here, and the rest of the day's round-up below.
