The first three rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft are in the books, which means the Miami Dolphins have finally made their first pick. It took until the end of the third round, late on the second night of the three-day selection process, before Miami found themselves on the clock for the first time.
The Dolphins traded away all of their own picks for this year, along with several picks they had acquired over the last several years. They did not have a pick until the 102nd overall selection, a pick they received as part of the trade-back scenario with the San Francisco 49ers last year. With that pick, Miami selected Georgia linebacker Channing Tindall.
On Saturday, the Dolphins used the 125th pick to select Texas Tech wide receiver Erik Ezukanma.
The Dolphins do not come back on the clock until the seventh round, first with the 224th pick. That pick was received from the Baltimore Ravens in the deal that sent center Greg Mancz to Miami last year. The Ravens had received that pick from the New England Patriots in a deal involving cornerback Shaun Wade. The Patriots originally received the pick from the Houston Texans in a trade involving Ryan Izzo.
Miami’s final pick is the 247th overall selection, a pick they received from the Tennessee Titans in a deal including offensive lineman Isaiah Wilson.
While Thursday might be quiet, we will of course track everything Miami does throughout the weekend. We will update every trade and pick the team makes right here. You can check out all of the odds for this year’s draft courtesy of our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook.
