The NFL has announced the full order for the 2021 NFL Draft, including all awarded compensatory picks. The Draft begins April 29, 2021 with the first pick from the Jacksonville Jaguars and runs through seven rounds over three nights, ending on May 1, 2021 with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers holding Pick 259. The Draft is scheduled to be held in Cleveland, Ohio.

The Miami Dolphins come into the Draft holding eight picks. They start their selection process with the third overall selection, a pick they received from the Houston Texans as part of the 2019 trade that sent tackle Laremy Tunsil and wide receiver Kenny Stills to Houston. The Dolphins then are on the clock for the second time in round one with the 18th pick.

Miami also holds two second-round picks, beginning with the fourth selection (36 overall), also from Houston as part of the 2019 trade. The Dolphins then have the 18th selection (50th overall) as well.

The Dolphins have the 18th pick in the third round, the 81st overall selection, and the 18th pick in the fourth round, the 123rd overall selection. Miami held the 121st pick, the 16th selection in the fourth round, having obtained it and a fifth-round pick from the Las Vegas Raiders for linebacker Raekwon McMillan. Miami then traded the 121st pick back to Las Vegas for wide receiver Lynn Bowden, Jr., and a sixth-round pick.

Miami has traded away the 18th pick in both the fifth- and sixth-rounds. For the 162nd overall pick, the fifth-round selection, the Dolphins sent it to Vegas in the McMillan trade. In the sixth-round, Miami’s 202nd overall pick was sent to the Texans in the Tunsil trade, with Houston then sending that pick to the Cincinnati Bengals for quarterback Ryan Finley and a swap of seventh-round picks. Miami also held the 203rd overall pick, the 19th selection of the sixth round, a pick that started with the Washington Football Team before moving to the Las Vegas Raiders for tackle David Sharpe and a seventh round pick, then on to the Dolphins in the McMillan trade; Miami has traded the pick and defensive end Shaq Lawson to Houston for linebacker Benardrick McKinney and a seventh-round pick.

The Dolphins have also been involved in two more trades involving sixth-round picks, having held the 207th and 208th picks (23rd and 24th in the round) at some point. The 207th pick started with the Pittsburgh Steelers before being a part of the trade that sent safety Minkah Fitzpatrick to Pittsburgh; Miami traded the pick to the Kansas City Chiefs for a seventh-round pick and running back DeAndre Washington. The 208th pick was originally the Seattle Seahawks’ selection before being moved to the Dolphins for a sixth-round pick last year; Miami traded a conditional seventh-round pick to the Chicago Bears last year for tight end Adam Shaheen, with the conditions being met and moving up to this sixth round selection.

In the seventh round, Miami again holds the third pick, 231st overall, from Houston, this time from the Lawson-McKinney trade. The Dolphins also held the 232nd pick, the fourth in the round, after acquiring it from the Atlanta Falcons in the trade that sent defensive end Charles Harris to Atlanta, but then traded it to the Tennessee Titans for offensive tackle Isaiah Wilson and a 2022 seventh-round pick. Miami’s own 18th overall pick, the 245th overall, was sent to the Steelers in the Fitzpatrick trade. The Dolphins acquired the 31st pick, 258th overall, from the Kansas City Chiefs as part of the Washington trade.

Here are all the Dolphins’ picks, followed by the full draft order:
