For some, what the Dolphins have done over the last two days has been impressive. To others, it has been quite the opposite.
After day one of the NFL draft, much of #DolphinsTwitter was in perfect harmony over the Christian Wilkins pick. Every. Single. Account. tweeted out the GIF of him doing a split at the National Championship game, and the provocative picture from the Ohio State game. But for the second straight year, fans, experts, and analysts were all impressed with the Dolphins first-round pick.
And then day two came and the rumors that the Dolphins were interested in Josh Rosen had split twitter into their usual civil war. No one knew what would happen.
Soon we would find out, the first domino would have to fall.
Miami traded down with the New Orleans Saints.
Dolphins trade: Pick 48, 116.
Saints trade: Pick 62, 202 and a 2020 second round pick.

And then, the seemingly unexpected happened.

What came next was mass disarray and quality entertainment.
Here is the good, the bad, and the ugly from the Josh Rosen trade on Twitter.
#Dolphins get Josh Rosen on an inexpensive deal for three years, two extra 2020 picks (to potentially trade for a QB or move up in the draft) and still have five picks left in the draft.
Great for Rosen and Miami.

You don’t have to literally cheer for the Dolphins but if you’re not rooting for Josh Rosen with this situation and how he was treated, you have no soul

In years past it felt like many of the Miami Dolphins trades/acquisitions were forced and desperate, but this Josh Rosen trade showed tremendous patience and discipline on their part. They were in the driver's seat the entire time and made out like bandits.

Imagine if someone told you we’d have Josh Rosen and Minkah Fitzpatrick last year.

Josh Rosen being an Atheist Jew is perfect for South Florida sports fans tbh

Josh Rosen is costing the Dolphins $6 million over three years. It’s NOTHING. He’s a great number two if it doesn’t work out. And you’re paying him peanuts to do so.

Josh Rosen ,a potential franchise quarterback, cost less than Leonta Carroo.
— Matthew Cannata (@CannataPFN) April 27, 2019
Josh Rosen costs $6.3 million over the next 3 years. And this move in no way creates an obstacle for #Dolphins to draft QB early in 2020.

Is Ethan Skolnick of Five Reasons the three-eyed raven?
The Dolphins should try to trade down.
Then they should try to flip the highest pick they get for Rosen, if they want him.
