The Splash Zone 4/27/19: Dolphins Trade For Josh Rosen; Draft Michael Deiter

Welcome to the Splash Zone, the quickest way to get your day started off right. We bring you a rundown of Miami Dolphins news from the last 24 hours.

NFL: Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks Steven Bisig-USA TODAY Sports

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.

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