Talk about a Friday news dump.

The Miami Dolphins have a plan and it is coming together on a Friday afternoon.

Coming from the official Philadelphia Eagles Twitter account, the Miami Dolphins are receiving picks No. 6 and No. 156 in the 2021 draft for No. 12 overall, No. 123 overall, and a 2022 first round pick.

This comes just minutes after ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that the team traded the No. 3 overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers for three first-round picks and a future third round pick.

Suddenly, after the trades, Miami is back in the top-10 in this year’s draft, a third-round pick in 2021 and a first-round pick in 2023.

It seems like the Miami Dolphins are still targeting one of the top players in the NFL draft, which is still a month away.

The team has been unpredictable under general manager Chris Grier and coach Brian Flores, and these trades continue that trend.

While the Miami Dolphins continue to load up on picks, it is important to keep in mind that they need to hit on these picks in order to make these trades worth it.
