The Miami Dolphins will be represented by two running backs on stage at the 2016 NFL Draft during day two. The league will be using legends to make the announcements of each team's pick in the second round, then will follow that with Walter Payton Man of the Year award winners or team nominees. For Miami, the legend will be Hall of Fame running back Larry Csonka and the Walter Payton nominee will be Ronnie Brown.

Csonka was the eighth overall pick for the Dolphins in 1968, playing eight years for Miami over the course of a 11 year NFL career. He appeared in 106 games, starting all but one of them, with 1,891 carries for 8,081 yards with 64 touchdowns. He caught 91 passes for 688 yards with another four touchdowns. Csonka was selected to five Pro Bowls and was a two-time First Team All Pro selection. He was a member of the Dolphins' two Super Bowl championship teams, including the Perfect Season team in 1972. Csonka retired after the 1979 season and was selected to the Hall of Fame in 1987.

Brown was Miami's 2005 first round pick, being selected second overall that year. He played six seasons with Miami, working much of that time as one half of a dynamic Dolphins running back duo, along with Ricky Williams. He served as the trigger man to the Dolphins' Wildcat offense in 2008. With Miami, Brown played in 76 games, with 71 starts, carrying the ball 1,128 times, picking up 4,815 yards with 36 touchdowns. He also caught 184 passes for 1,491 yards with two touchdowns. As the Wildcat triggerman, Brown attempted 12 passes, completing four for 63 yards with two touchdowns. He was selected to the 2008 Pro Bowl and was the Dolphins' 2010 Walter Payton Man of the Year team award winner and league nominee.

The Dolphins hold the 11th pick in the second round (42nd overall) and the 10th pick in the third round (73rd overall).
