Armed with more draft picks than any other franchise in the 2020 NFL Draft, it's no secret that the Miami Dolphins are in the market for a new quarterback this offseason. But they only have the No. 5 pick in the draft, and many analysts believe it could take a trade to ensure Miami lands a top-tier QB prospect.

While the Dolphins have been connected to Tua Tagovailoa for quite some time, there have also been some rumors circulating that suggest they could be interested in Joe Burrow as well. In all likelihood, though, drafting Burrow would require a trade up to the No. 1 overall pick.

Although, according to a recent report, some members of the Dolphins front office, namely the GM and head coach, are against making a trade of that magnitude.

With five picks in the first two rounds, Miami has more than enough ammunition to move up. However, the team also has holes all over the roster, and trading up for Burrow would severely limit Miami's options in the rest of the draft.

And it sure seems like head coach Brian Flores and GM Chris Grier are aware of that reality.

It seems like Miami will stand pat and remain at No. 5 – at least according to this report. If that is the case, the team will likely come away with Tagovailoa (if he's still available) or Justin Herbert. But with the draft still about two weeks away, there's plenty of time for things to change.
