Miami Dolphins Trade up and Draft Dion Jordan

The Miami Dolphins have traded their 12th overall pick and 42nd overall pick to the Oakland Raiders for the third overall pick in the NFL Draft. With that pick they took Dion Jordan, OLB from Oregon.

Jordan has been drawing comparisons to Jason Taylor, which is obviously a very nice comparison for Dolphins fans.

Miami obviously really likes Jordan, so we'll see how well he can do opposite of Cameron Wake. Here's some tape (and highlights) on him.

Stay tuned. Who knows what happens next.
