DAVIE, Fla. - The Miami Dolphins traded down twice before selecting Louisiana State receiver Jarvis Landry in the second round of the NFL draft Friday.
Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. made up the most prolific receiving tandem in Tigers history. Beckham went to the New York Giants in the first round.
Before picking Landry, the Dolphins sent the 50th overall pick to the San Diego Chargers for their 57th pick. Then they traded that pick to the San Francisco 49ers for the 63rd overall pick.
The addition of Landry gives new offensive coordinator Bill Lazor more depth at receiver, a position hard hit by injuries last season.
Miami selected Tennessee right tackle Ja'Wuan James with the 19th overall pick in the first round.
