If the Miami Dolphins are truly is interested in Missouri quarterback Drew Lock, it’s looking more like they may have to move up in top of NFL Draft to get him.
With the understanding that you can’t read too much into what teams are doing in the pre-draft process with specific All Star game or Combine interviews or even, a team visit at their facility, it still appears the Dolphins are looking to fill their need a quarterback and may this time do so in the first round.
And if further appears, at this point, that the short of having the first or second pick, they will have no shot at Oklahoma Heisman winning quarterback Kyler Murray. However, it also appears that the Missouri’s pocket passing Lock still could end up being taken in the top 10 on night one of the draft. And, it might be in front of another prominent pocket passing QB, who has been getting previous praise
NFL media and tv/radio/internet hosts all have different opinions about what’s going to happen after Murray is the first QB picked. After a couple of months of non-stop hyping of Ohio State record-breaking quarterback Dwayne Haskins being all but put in ink as the next quarterback to be taken, there’s now true debate that another QB could be going in front of him.
Here is Lance Zierlein of the NFL Network and NFL.com:
After speaking with a few different teams, I definitely get the feeling that Dwayne Haskins draft stock was more media created than team driven. I see Haskins falling on draft day and I think the chances are increasing that he is not the second QB off the board.

Where is the best landing spot for QB Dwayne Haskins?

We also know that the Dolphins met previously with Lock at the Senior Bowl with legend Dan Marino asking some of the questions in Mobile early in the week before the game. This occurred before Miami had officially hired Brian Flores, who was still coaching with the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
Miami has since hosted Lock for a meeting at their facility, and again, you can read into that either they are truly interested or at least giving off the impression that they are for possible trades, etc.
Currently the Dolphins or picking 13th in the draft behind teams like the Giants and the Broncos, who have needs for QB of the future. Also, it is the first time that Chris Grier will be completely in charge of the draft, as he now heads football operations and reports directly to owner Stephen Ross. Would Grier be bold and willing to part with a future number one pick or more to move up two spots or so, if it meant getting Lock?
We won’t know for sure for a couple of weeks, but the debate about Lock going earlier than Haskins or any other QB is definitely heating up.
