The next two rounds take place on Friday. The Dolphins have a 2nd round pick. The Dolphins will have four more picks on Saturday, for a total of six picks.

The Dolphins have had some legendary draft picks in their history.

Miami's first-round selection of the 1983 draft was none other than Dan Marino with the 27th pick overall.

Marino is a Dolphins Hall of Famer and one of the best quarterbacks in NFL history. In 2020, Dolphins selected quarterback Tua Tagovailoa 5th overall.

Let's not forget some of the members of the 1972 perfect team.

Quarterback Bob Griese was selected by the Dolphins in the fourth overall pick in 1967 from Purdue and In 1968 the Dolphins selected Syracuse running back Larry Csonka with the eighth overall pick.

Not to mention two other Dolphin Hall of Famers.

Defensive lineman Jason Taylor was selected in the 3rd round of the 1997 draft and linebacker Zach Thomas was selected in the fifth round of the 1996 NFL draft.
