With the top-10 picks in this month's NFL draft so jumbled (I mean, look at how our mock drafters are breaking it down -- not a whole lot of uniformity there), a team like the Dolphins might be better off staying at No. 12 overall and not trying to trade up in the first round.

But that's not saying Miami won't trade up -- and it's not saying Miami will. Basically, we're still in the spin zone where NFL executives try to set up smokescreens to try to confuse other teams (and fans and media) about their true intentions for the draft. With that, Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland said this week that his team could trade up, and that it could trade all the way up to the No. 1 overall pick, currently held by the Chiefs.

“I've got enough ammunition to get to the first pick if I wanted to, but I don't see myself doing that, personally,” Ireland said, via the Palm Beach Post.

After losing left tackle Jake Long to the Rams in free agency, the Dolphins could be on the lookout for the next franchise blind-side protector in the first round. Reportedly, they've been enamored with Oklahoma's Lane Johnson, but Texas A&M's Luke Joeckel and Central Michigan's Eric Fisher also figure to go within the first 10 picks (and probably before Johnson).

A guy like Jonathan Martin, who Miami took in the second round last year and who replaced Long after he was lost for the season in 2012, could move to left tackle permanently, or, if Miami drafts a left tackle, he could return to the right side.
