Over the last several seasons, the Miami Dolphins have entered the NFL Draft with several early round picks, giving them the flexibility to move around the draft order if and when they wanted, ultimately adding some key talent to the roster. This year, the Dolphins are not in that same position having used picks in this year’s Draft to add veteran talent as well as make moves in last year’s selection process.
Miami’s trades involving early picks this year included the twin moves last year, moving back in a trade with the San Francisco 49ers then turning around and making a trade up involving the Philadelphia Eagles. The Dolphins gave up their 2022 first-round pick in the deal with the Eagles, but they acquired the 49ers’ 2022 first-rounder in the San Francisco trade. That pick, however, was sent to the Kansas City Chiefs this offseason as part of a five-selections for wide receiver Tyreek Hill trade.
Where do the Dolphins stand with picks just a few weeks ahead of the 2022 NFL Draft? We reset Miami’s selections this morning, as well as take a look at the team’s 2023 picks.
