    Who Did the Miami Dolphins Draft In 2024? Picks, Analysis, and More

    The Miami Dolphins will look to make a deeper push into the playoffs with the help of their 2024 draft picks.

    The Miami Dolphins started red hot but fizzled as the 2023 season went along, flaming out in the postseason with a Wild Card loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, 26-7.

    After losing a caravan of free agents this offseason, the Dolphins will need an extra-high hit rate with its reduced lot of 2024 NFL Draft picks due to a tampering punishment.

    Looking to make the most of what they’ve got, let’s dive into a full list of the Dolphins’ 2024 NFL Draft picks.

    Full List of Dolphins Picks by Round In 2024

    Who Did the Dolphins Draft in 2024?

    Chop Robinson, EDGE, Round 1, Pick 21

    Free-agent losses on the defensive side ravaged the Dolphins. Which helped spark Chop Robinson going No. 21 overall to Miami.

    In landing Robinson, the Dolphins are grabbing one of the draft’s fastest EDGE options best known for blazing his 40-yard dash in 4.49 at the NFL Combine.

    Outside of speed, PFN’s Ian Cummings is a fan of Robinson’s maniacal energy he shows on the football field while accompanied by his litany of skills as a defender.

    “Robinson’s physical build is unique. He lacks the elite length many crave in top-tier EDGE defenders. However, Robinson nevertheless wins with all kinds of different qualities, and he compensates in the power realm with his momentum generation, strength, leverage, and relentless drive,” Cummings said.

    Cummings handed Robinson a top-20 prospect grade ahead of the draft.

    “Robinson’s hyper-elite explosive athleticism and play speed can send tackles careening off the snap, and his high-end ankle flexion only makes his speed more potent. Robinson’s burst and bend are overwhelming qualities, and he can capitalize on those traits with active hands,” Cummings said.

    Patrick Paul, OT, Round 2, Pick 55

    Sometimes, a player’s build is so dominating that he immediately sees the field at the collegiate level. That was the case for Paul, starting three games as a true freshman at Houston in 2019.

    Paul’s insertion into the starting lineup would yield adversity — none greater than a season-ending lower leg injury in 2020 — but now, Paul can look back on an incredibly fruitful four-year starting career.

    Paul was a first-team All-AAC honoree. And once Houston moved to the Big 12 for his final season, he was a first-team All-Big 12 performer in his lone year at the Power Five level. He also earned the title of captain late in his career. Now, he’ll follow in the footsteps of his brother, Chris Paul, to the NFL.

    A first-generation Nigerian-American who lived in Nigeria for almost three years as a child, Paul has never shied away from an opportunity or a chance to hone his skills. Now, the NFL will be the ultimate test — for a mixed martial artist, a boxer, but most prominently, an offensive tackle.

    Jaylen Wright, RB, Round 4, Pick 120

    The Dolphins traded up with the Eagles and gave up draft capital in next year’s draft to take the Volunteers RB. Wright is an interesting draft pick and chooses to provide some real juice to a Dolphins offense that already has a ton of it.

    According to Cummings, “Wright grades out as a top-100 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft on my board. He’s one of the top RB prospects in the class and could be an immediate spark plug for an offense in need of a change-of-pace back with deadly speed and three-down utility.”

    Mohamed Kamara, EDGE, Round 5, Pick 158

    The Dolphins add pass rush off the edge in the fifth round with the selection of Mohamed Kamara.

    According to Cummings, “Kamara grades out as an early-to-mid Day 3 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft. Particularly for teams that run predominantly odd and hybrid-front alignments, Kamara is worth consideration anywhere in the Day 3 range.”

    Malik Washington, WR, Round 6, Pick 184

    Malik Washington is an electric pass catcher who has the chance to fit right into the Dolphins’ offensive attack on Day 1. Miami has a type, and Washington certainly fits that speed profile they covet.

    According to Cummings, “Malik Washington grades out as a top-75 prospect in the 2024 NFL Draft, who could field interest anywhere from mid-to-late Day 2. He’d be a steal if he were to sneak into the Day 3 range. He profiles as a starting slot receiver very early in his NFL career.”

    Patrick McMorris, S, Round 6, Pick 198

    Dolphins add another piece to their secondary with the selection of Patrick McMorris out of Cal. McMorris will look to come in and compete for a role on special teams early on.

    Tahj Washington, WR, Round 7, Pick 241

    The Dolphins continue to accumulate WR talent with blazing speed and quickness. Washington fits the bill here perfectly and will fill nicely into what Miami tries to do on offense.
