It would be hilarious if Philly was 8-9 and won the division,  and all 3 of their 2022 1st round picks were in picks 20-32

That all depends on if it’s the Dolphins first or the Niners first. If it’s the Niners first and the Colts and Niners play in the SB they could be picking 21, 31 and 32

yes and please cry about opponents scoring 45 every time for another year, would be hilarious

You see how aggressive we are in FA helping our D.  All over those special teams aces.  No one in this draft is fixing our D this year.

Yes the biggest bummer is Pederson isn't in Philly anymore to stop calling running plays, even though they're gaining 7yds per carry.

Trades like these are why I actually like the draft better than the playoffs.  In the playoffs, only one team ever goes home happy.  In the draft, every team gets the chance to make moves that their fans can be happy about.

Well that ain't happening. Wentz sucks. I just hope he plays 75% of the snaps.

Yikes, that second trade is even worse than I realized, as a Dolphins fan. I read it quickly and thought Miami also moved up from 156 to 123. Instead the Eagles must have been suppressing laughter to acquire the Miami first in 2022 while also advancing one round with a mid choice this year.

No matter how it works out, that's an incredibly sharp move by the Eagles to take away the first round pick of a team than just advanced from 6 wins to 10 wins. Far more often than not, regression will attach and that pick turns out to be higher than forecast, or than personnel suggests. I have mentioned this many times on Dolphin forums recently, that you don't want to be on the wrong end of that situational trend with a trade partner. Instead Miami swapped with the 49ers who are on upward bounce trajectory after flopping from 13 wins all the way to 6.

Three is the key number. When the win number moves 3 either way from the prior year, that's when the rubber band takes it back in the prior direction 70-75% of the time. Of course, we're dealing with 17 games instead of 16 this season so the direct relationship is slightly altered.

Sweet.  Dallas is picking infront of Philly again.  I hope we get another draft night meltdown! 

This has been status quo since the start of the 2000's.

Had to move up and get a baller WR. It makes sense. 

Of course, with me posting this, now the Fins will pick Surtain at 6.
