Today’s acquisition of Bradley Chubb featured a lot of moving parts. A lot. So let me start. The 49ers pulled  a monster trade with the Dolphins to move up to No. 3 overall in the 2021 draft where they selected North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance. The Dolphins got  their 2021, 2022 and 2023 first-round picks, along with a 2022 compensatory third-round selection (No. 102 overall). That’s a lot of draft capitol. The Miami Dolphins selected Alabama wide receiver Jaylen Waddle with the sixth overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

Let’s not forget the picks from 2019 when the Dolphins’ 2016 first-round pick Laremy Tunsil was traded to the Houston Texans  for a 2020 first-round pick and 2021 first- and second-round picks.

Fast forward to spring of 2022. The Kansas City Chiefs traded six-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Tyreek Hill to the Miami Dolphins for five draft picks: a 2022 first-round pick (No. 29), second-round pick (No. 50) and fourth-round pick, plus fourth- and sixth-round picks in the 2023 draft.

And now for today’s trade.

With this latest trade for Bradley Chubb, The Dolphins are putting on a MasterClass of flipping draft picks and personnel to build a team.
