The Cardinals (9-7) and Eagles (9-6-1) would have both picked higher than the Dolphins (11-5) based on worse regular-season records.
Super Bowl participants, though, automatically pick 31st and 32nd, so either the Cardinals or Eagles will slide down to one of those spots and the Dolphins will move up from No. 26 to No. 25.
So because some teams that have absolutely nothing to do with the Dolphins won, the Fins have moved to a better slot in the draft, making them the real winners. Speaking of winners, good news: I finally finished pasting sequins on the tiny shoes I made for my cat, Senior Pookie! You're all set for the ball, Senior Pookie! Weeee!
