The Miami Dolphins have just four selections left in the 2022 NFL Draft to fill the remaining roster holes after free agency.
Miami’s numerous trades over the past few offseasons have left the team with only a handful of picks, and many of them aren’t the Dolphins’ original selection.
Here’s where the Dolphins are picking up and the reasons why:
Third round: No. 102
After dealing the 29th and 50th picks of the 2022 draft to Kansas City in the Tyreek Hill trade, the Dolphins should now have the last first pick of a draft in team history, “beating” the 90th pick. in 2002 (OL Seth McKinney).
Last year, the Dolphins traded their own second-round pick (#50) and third-round pick (#81) in 2022 to the New York Giants to move to pick #42 to select the player of offensive line Liam Eichenberg, who started 16 of the 17 tackle games he played as a rookie.
The No. 102 pick comes from the 49ers for the trade that led to San Francisco taking Lance.
Fourth round: No. 125
Miami acquired the No. 125 pick from the Pittsburgh Steelers in a fifth-round draft day trade (No. 156) last year.
Seventh round: Nos. 224 and 247
Miami sent its 2022 sixth-round pick (No. 196) to the Ravens for the No. 224 trade pick that produced center Greg Mancz, who started four games due to Michael Deiter’s foot injury, and is now a free agent.
Miami doesn’t have its own seventh-round pick (No. 238) due to the trade that acquired the rights to Aqib Talib in 2019 for the 2020 fifth-round pick.
And the No. 247 pick came from Tennessee in a trade pick for Isaiah Wilson, who never made it to training camp due to his off-court conduct.
