NFL Draft Rumors: Dolphins Listening to Calls for No. 6 Pick

Dolphins could move first-round pick again originally appeared on NBC Sports Washington

The Miami Dolphins reportedly are considering moving back from the No. 6 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. The pick was originally the Philadelphia Eagles' selection, but Miami acquired it in the deal that sent the No. 3 overall pick to the San Francisco 49ers.

The Dolphins are fielding calls from front offices eager to vault towards the top of a talent-laden draft, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport:

It is possible that the Washington Football Team could move up to the No. 6 spot if they are interested in drafting a quarterback.

Washington signed veteran quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick in free agency, but he isn't the long-term solution for the team at quarterback. 

If Mac Jones, Justin Fields or Trey Lance falls in the draft, Washington could try and pounce on Miami's willingness to trade and move up to the No. 6 pick.

It certainly would take a massive haul, but Miami doesn't need to take a quarterback with last year's first-round selection Tua Tagovailoa already entrenched as the team's starter. 

Washington has traded up for a quarterback before (how could we forget Robert Griffin III), but it is hard to see the team mortgaging its future right after signing Fitzpatrick. 

Still, if Washington has its eyes on a player that falls, Miami may be one of the first teams that it calls to make a deal.
