We are edging closer to the 2012 NFL Draft. And, edging seems to be the operative word in that senetence. It seems like we have been waiting for the draft forever already, and we still have a little over a week until round one on Thursday, April 26th.

In order to better prepare us for the draft, I've started coming up with a series of posts looking at draft history. Last week, I posted about the eigth pick over the last 20 years. Today, I bring you every Miami Dolphins first round selection since the inception of the team.
