The Miami Dolphins have acquired the third overall pick in the draft from the Oakland Raiders in exchange for the 12th and 42nd overall picks, The Dolphins used the third pick to select Oregon linebacker Dion Jordan.

For the Ravens, the pick is somewhat of a relief if they’re still targeting tackle Lane Johnson out of Oklahoma. It seemed as if the Dolphins were a lock to pick Johnson after not acquiring Brandon Albert from the Chiefs and then trading up once Eric Fisher and Luke Joekel were off the board. Johnson lives to see another pick, but the Ravens are clearly running out of time.
