The 2021 NFL draft is in the books, and now it’s time to assess the haul.
The Dolphins entered the draft with eight selections in hand. The team wound up making seven of those picks, trading away its fifth-round pick for a fourth-rounder in 2022 from the Pittsburgh Steelers on Saturday.
Notably, the Dolphins nabbed four of the first 42 picks in the draft.
Miami chose Alabama Crimson Tide wide receiver Jaylen Waddle with the No. 6 overall pick and University of Miami edge rusher Jaelan Phillips at No. 18 on Thursday. On Friday, the Dolphins picked Oregon safety Jevon Holland.
Not long after that move, Miami traded up from the No. 50 overall spot and sent a third-round pick in 2022 to the New York Giants in order to select Notre Dame offensive lineman Liam Eichenberg.
On Saturday, the Dolphins spent their seventh-round selections on UMass offensive lineman Larnel Coleman and University of Cincinnati running back Gerrid Doaks.
