As we head toward the 2016 NFL Draft, we take a look back at all of the first-round picks for the Miami Dolphins.

The NFL Draft is just over a week away. While most of our focus right now is on the prospects the Miami Dolphins might take with the 13th overall pick, as well as the other seven selections they have during the three-day Draft, this morning we start a look back at all of the previous picks Miami has made.

We start with the first round, breaking down each pick Miami has made in the opening period of the Draft by the overall-pick used to select that player. We start with the first-overall selection, which Miami has had twice, in 2008 when they selected Jake Long and in 1966 as the expansion team, selecting Jim Grabowski with the pick. They have also had the second-overall pick twice, in 2005 when they added Ronnie Brown and in 1966, again as the expansion franchise, selecting Rick Norton.

Miami has picked three Hall of Fame players in the first round, and given that they are the same three players who have their numbers retired by the team, it is a pretty good group. Bob Griese was selected with the fourth-overall pick in 1967, Larry Csonka was picked with the eighth selection in 1968, and Dan Marino was added with the 27th pick in 1983.
