Flash back to 2016 when Laremy Tunsil fell to the Dolphins over a leaked video. Who could have predicted how that selection was going to help shape the Dolphins future? Then the Dolphins were mocked for trading Tunsil away in what was to be a “tank” season in 2019 for the team. Almost two years later and the Dolphins are benefiting greatly from the trade with the Houston Texans. The Dolphins, Eagles, and 49ers were all involved on a blockbuster trade that moved some draft picks around between the three teams. Miami still sits at a great spot (#6) and secured a couple more first round selections for upcoming drafts.

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