Many of Miami's picks have traded hands multiple times. A pair of September 1 trades (acquisitions of Danny Isidora and Evan Boehm) saw late-round picks exchanged. The Isidora trade sent a seventh-round pick to Minnesota, while Miami and Indianapolis made a conditional pick swap in the sixth and seventh rounds for the offensive lineman.

Multiple mid-round picks were exchanged as part of the two marquee trades the Dolphins made last year. The Laremy Tunsil and Kenny Stills trade brought back two first-round picks (one of them is in 2021), a 2021 second-round pick and offensive tackle Julién Davenport. Also as part of that trade, Miami sent a fourth-round pick in 2020 and sixth-round pick in 2021 to Houston.

The Minkah Fitzpatrick trade – in addition to the 18th pick in 2020 – also brought back a 2020 fifth-round pick and a 2021 sixth-round pick. Miami, along with the safety, sent a 2020 fourth-round pick and a 2021 seventh-round pick to the Steelers.

Quarterback Ryan Tannehill and a 2019 sixth-round pick were traded last March to the Tennessee Titans. In return, the Dolphins received a 2019 seventh-round pick and a 2020 fourth-round pick (the pick that ultimately went to Pittsburgh in the Minkah Fitzpatrick deal).

Running back Kenyan Drake was dealt to the Arizona Cardinals ahead of last October's trade deadline. The conditional pick settled in the fifth round at No. 153 overall.
