Raiders trade 3rd overall pick to Miami

The Miami Dolphins have traded up to the No. 3 overall pick in the NFL draft to select outside linebacker Dion Jordan of Oregon.

The Dolphins swung a trade Thursday night with Oakland, giving up the No. 12 and No. 42 overall choices. The latter was the first of two picks Miami had in the second round.

Three of the first four picks were tackles, and Miami was in the market for help at that position, but instead opted to upgrade a defense that tied for fourth-worst in the league last year in takeaways.

The 6-foot-6, 240-pound Jordan had 14.5 sacks in 45 games with Oregon.
