The 2023 NFL Draft begins tonight, kicking off three days of college prospects being added to team rosters. Between tonight and Saturday, 259 players will hear their names called, taking the next step in their dreams of becoming NFL players. This year’s Draft is being held at Union Station in Kansas City, Missouri and will begin with the Carolina Panthers making the first overall selection.

For the Miami Dolphins, tonight’s first round of the Draft will likely be a quiet one. The team is not scheduled to make a pick in the first 31 selections after forfeiting their first-round pick as punishment for tampering with quarterback Tom Brady and coach Sean Payton.

While tonight might not be the most exciting for the Dolphins and Dolphins fans, there is nothing preventing Miami from making a move to trade back into the first round. Could it happen? We will have to watch tonight to find out.
