Dolphins acquire 3rd-overall pick from Raiders and select Oregon OLB Dion Jordan

The Oakland Raiders have a ton of needs and had only three picks in the first five rounds.

It was widely known that they were interested in trading down and they did.

Moving up to the third-overall pick, the Miami Dolphins selected Oregon outside linebacker Dion Jordan to give the Dolphins another pass-rusher opposite Cameron Wake, who ranks third in sacks (37.5) in the NFL over the past three seasons.

As a converted receiver and tight end, Jordan is a bit raw and coming off surgery to repair a torn labrum in his shoulder. That said, he is an explosive and smooth athlete with a lot of upside that can rush the passer or drop in coverage. One of the players to whom he has been compared is former Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor.

The Eagles are on the clock with the fourth-overall pick.
