The Miami Dolphins have traded back in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft. The team started the round with the 223rd pick, a selection which they had originally received from the Los Angeles Rams in the William Hayes trade earlier this offseason. That pick was sent to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for the 237th overall pick this year, as well as the Buccaneers’ 2018 seventh round pick.
The Dolphins will still have seven total picks in this year’s Draft, with a pin in each of the first, second, third, sixth, and seventh rounds, plus two in the fifth round. Miami’s picks in each of the first six selections were:
Round 1 - Pick 22 - Charles Harris, DE, Missouri
Round 2 - Pick 22 (Overall 54) - Raekwon McMillan, LB, Ohio State
Round 3 - Pick 33 (Overall 97 - Compensatory) - Cordrea Tankersley, CB, Clemson
Round 5 - Pick 22 (Overall 164) - Isaac Asiata, G, Utah
Round 5 - Pick 35 (Overall 178 - Compensatory) - Davon Godchaux, DT, LSU
Round 6 - Pick 10 (Overall 194 - from Eagles) - Vincent Taylor, DT, Oklahoma State
This is the second trade Miami completed this year, after a fifth-round swap with the Philadelphia Eagles. Miami moved up from the 166th overall pick to the 164th selection in that move, giving Philadelphia their 184th pick, while adding the 194th selection.
