With the players Miami covets likely to be off the board by the time they are on the clock Thursday night, general manager Dennis Hickey is trying to trade out of the 19th spot, The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reports.
Hickey has spent a good portion of the past few days discussing trade-up and trade-down scenarios with other teams.
Should Hickey succeed in trading up, one source tells The Herald it likely would be for versatile Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin.
A more realistic scenario is moving down, perhaps with right tackle prospects such as Ja'Wuan James, Joel Bitonio, Cyrus Kouandjio or Morgan Moses as late first-round targets.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport has repeatedly dropped James' name as a player the Dolphins covet.
If Hickey is forced to stay put at No. 19, he might have to save the offensive line for the second round.
In which case, the Dolphins reportedly "love" Ohio State linebacker Ryan Shazier and also have USC wideout Marqise Lee and Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller on the radar.
