The Miami Dolphins pulled off a huge draft-day splash, moving up to the third pick and selecting Oregon pass-rusher Dion Jordan.

And it was surprisingly easy to get up that high. The Dolphins simply surrendered their 12th and 42nd overall picks to get there.

Jordan will pair with Cameron Wake to provide a potentially fierce pass rush. His availability for minicamp is in doubt, however, as he is recovering from offseason surgery for a torn labrum.

“I was surprised. I wasn’t expecting that. I’m surprised and very blessed,” Jordan said on ESPN.

Earlier, ESPN reported that the Dolphins and Chiefs had tabled trade discussions for left tackle Branden Albert until each team had made its first-round draft picks.

Kansas City selected Eric Fisher first overall, and when the Jaguars selected fellow left tackle Luke Joeckel second, the pool of elite tackles began drying up quickly. It marked the first time that offensive linemen went 1-2 in the draft since 1968.

It is believed the Chiefs wanted the Dolphins’ 42nd pick in trade compensation, but obviously that is not an option anymore. They’ll either have to take the Dolphins’ other second, 54th overall, or lower their expectations.
