2007 Miami Dolphins Draft Order

I’ve received a lot of e-mails and inquiries on the Dolphins draft pick order this year (April 28, 29). So, here it is. They have one pick in all 7 rounds except the 5th, which they gave up to Detroit in the Joey Harrington trade. Matt Millen stole a pick from us which he will undoubtedly f-up anyway. Cripes.

FIRST ROUND: 9th overall (9th pick)
SECOND ROUND: 40th overall (8th pick)
THIRD ROUND: 71st overall (7th pick)
FOURTH ROUND: 104th overall (9th pick)
FIFTH ROUND: None (traded to Detroit for the rights to QB Joey Harrington)
SIXTH ROUND: 166th overall (7th pick)
SEVENTH ROUND: 200th overall (9th pick)

The Good: The Fins are picking in the top ten in every round, which will essentially give them a shot at top 10 talent per round.

The Bad: Only one pick per round this year (we would’ve had 2 second rounders but gave one to Minnesota for Culpepper). Every year I notice a trend with the New England Patriots: they get multiple picks in just about every round (they have 2 in the first this year). This is why Scott Pioli is the man up there. Not much we can do about that but it’s worth complaining about. Dammit.

The Ugly: The 5th round is deep but it’s still a good time to pick up a hidden gem or two. Zach Thomas anyone? Point being, we need all the picks we can get and with the prospect of Joey Harrington being released for salary-cap reasons, it hurts to know we gave up our 5th for nothing. Was it worth the gamble? I suppose. Hindsight is a bitch.

I’ll have more on the combine/draft coming up today and tomorrow. Also, I need your opinion. I’ve been thinking about live blogging the draft this year. But I’m not sure. Let me know in the comments if you’d be up for something like that. If I get enough “votes” then I’ll do it. If not, then, well, I won't. Go Fins!


If you have the patience to live blog the draft then I give you credit. I can barely sit on my couch with a beer for more then 30 minute of the draft.

Thanks for breaking down the draft Dude. I didn't realize we even had that many picks. I'm of the school of thought that we just give our picks away every year for nothing.

Hopefully we can make a huge splash on the number 9 pick.

It's nice to have you back Dude. Hope you had a nice weekend.
I vote yes. Since I'll be stuck at work that day (and you won't), it'll be the only way I can keep up.
Like J.D. I'll probably only watch a portion of it. Will it be just the first round? I would assmue so, right?

Anyway, I'll probably drop by if you did it.

Thanks for the draft order. I usually just watch the first round and that's it. If you blog the first round, I'll check in. Maybe you can then just update the Dolphins other picks as they happen? (just a suggestion)
Dude...loving the idea and like jd, i give you credit for your patience with the draft blog...

i'll be checking in of course...

lovin what you do here!
