How Many Draft Picks Do the Dolphins Have in 2024?
The Dolphins are currently slated to have six picks in the 2024 NFL Draft. They own their first and second-round picks but lost their third-rounder due to violating league policies by tampering. Miami also lost their fourth-round selection in the trade for pass rusher Bradley Chubb last season.
Miami owns their own picks in Rounds 5, 6, and 7 and also picked up an additional sixth-round selection from the Chicago Bears in the Dan Feeney trade.
Who Did the Dolphins Draft in 2023?
The Dolphins only made four picks in the 2023 NFL Draft and didn’t pick in the first, fourth, or fifth rounds.
Miami’s first pick in the draft was South Carolina cornerback Cam Smith, who the team drafted 51st overall in the second round. Smith spent most of the season on special teams, playing behind Jalen Ramsey, Xavien Howard, and Kader Kohou on defense.
The Dolphins added to their offense with their third-round pick, selecting Texas A&M running back De’Von Achane. Achane instantly provided a spark as a rusher, rushing for 813 yards and eight touchdowns on 108 rushes. His 7.5 yards per attempt lead the NFL this season, proving his explosiveness with the ball in his hands.
Miami used their sixth-round pick to select wide receiver Elijah Higgins out of Stanford. Higgins did not make the team and is currently on the Arizona Cardinals as a tight end.
The Dolphins’ final pick in the 2023 NFL Draft also didn’t make the team’s initial roster. The team spent their seventh-round pick on Michigan offensive lineman Ryan Hayes but waived him. Hayes spent a few weeks on the practice squad with the Indianapolis Colts before being waived. The Dolphins signed him back to their practice squad in September.
