While the NFL free agency period is still ongoing, with the potential for the Miami Dolphins to still add more players, the focus around the league is starting to turn toward the NFL Draft. In 42 days, the newest members of the professional football fraternity will be selected and welcomed.
To get us through those 42 days, we will take a look at each of the Dolphins' 48 previous Drafts. We will take a look at one per day, with a couple of extras thrown in, just to make sure we make it through all 48 selection processes.
We've already completed the first three Drafts. This morning, we continue with the 1969 selections.
