ALAMEDA -- The Raiders made the first deal of the day Thursday, trading their No. 3 overall pick of the NFL Draft to Miami. In exchange, the Raiders received the Dolphins' first-round pick, No. 12 overall, as well as the Dolphins' second-round pick at No. 42 overall.

Per the Trade Value Chart, which is used as more of a guide than actual guidelines, the No. 3 overall pick is worth 2,200 points while the No. 12 pick is worth 1,200 points and the No. 42 pick is worth 480 points. So by that counts, the Dolphins "won" the deal, by 520 points.

But Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie accomplished a major goal -- he was able to pick up a second-round pick after Oakland entered the day without one. It was sent to Cincinnati in the Carson Palmer deal of 2011.

With the No. 3 pick, the Dolphins selected Oregon defensive end/linebacker Dion Jordan.
