Note: The Miami Dolphins forfeited its first-round selection and its 2024 third-round selection as punishment for multiple violations of the league’s anti-tampering policy in conversations with quarterback Tom Brady and Don Yee, the agent for then-New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton (as well as Brady). This is why there are only 31 picks in the first round. The Dolphins would have originally held pick 21.
