The Miami Dolphins began the 2014 NFL Draft by selecting Tennessee offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James with the 19th overall selection during last night's first round. Tonight, the league resumed the Draft process, with Miami waiting until the 57th overall pick to be once again on the clock.
The Dolphins were originally on the clock with the 50th pick, but traded it to the San Diego Chargers for picks 57 and 125.
This time, Miami picked LSU wide receiver Jarvis Landry.
Selecting James in the first round gave the Dolphins some flexibility with this pick, able to address any of their remaining needs, such as linebacker, tight end, or even another pick along the offensive line. In this case, the team turned to wide receiver instead.
After the 61st pick, Miami holds the 81st overall pick as their next selection, coming mid-way through the third round, which will be held later tonight. The full list of the Dolphins selections are:
The fourth through seventh rounds take place tomorrow afternoon.
