It was previously reported that the Dolphins would send the Ravens a 2014 seventh-round pick, but John Harbaugh told the media the Ravens are expecting a 2015 seventh-round pick from Miami for McKinnie.
McKinnie started the final 10 games of 2013 for the Dolphins and helped fortify a troublesome offensive line, which was engulfed in the bullying scandal that prompted Jonathan Martin to leave the team and led to Richie Incognito's eight-game suspension.
McKinnie, a former UM standout, is presently a free agent whom the Dolphins have not ruled out re-signing. However, coach Joe Philbin seems set on addressing the remaining spots on the starting offensive line through the 2014 draft.
Philbin also said the team envisions Dallas Thomas, the team's 2013 third-round pick, competing for a starting spot this offseason. However, he acknowledged the coaches must first find a home for the former University of Tennessee standout, who played left guard in his senior season for the Volunteers.
The Dolphins did not receive one of the 32 compensatory picks give for the 2014 draft, but Miami presently has a selection in every round of May's draft, which is considered the deepest talent wise in at least a decade.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
