Morning take: Will Dolphins trade down?

Here are the most interesting Miami Dolphins stories Tuesday from around the Web:

  • Omar Kelly of the Sun Sentinel examines what it will take for the Dolphins to move down from No. 19 overall in the NFL draft.

Morning take: Miami general manager Dennis Hickey said he’s been in contract with various teams about trade scenarios. If certain players are off the board, I think the Dolphins are more likely to move down this year rather than up.

  • Armando Salgeuro of the Miami Herald believes the Dolphins could take Tennessee offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James in the first round.

Morning take: There are several offensive tackles rated much higher than James. But many of those tackles could be off the board at No. 19. If James is the pick, I think Miami would be better off trading down to acquire more picks.

  • Alain Poupart of the Dolphins team site writes new defensive tackle Earl Mitchell is looking to grow in 2014.

Morning take: Mitchell believes he can thrive in Miami's 4-3 defense. The Dolphins are counting on Mitchell to be disruptive and replace the lost production from the departure of Paul Soliai.

  • Andrew Abramson of the Palm Beach Post believes offensive tackle Zack Martin is the favorite for the Dolphins.

Morning take: Martin has been the consistent player mentioned since the start of the pre-draft process. The Dolphins would like to have him, but he could be off the board by No. 19.
