33. Navy Blue – Jason Sanders, K

Jason Sanders had a down season in 2021 after a superb showing in 2020 that led to a contract extension. Even so, Sander’s 2020 season was too good to not have him as the first kicker or punter off the board. He ended 2020 being one of the highest-scoring kickers in the league and with one of the highest field goal percentages.

34. White – Dan Carpenter, K

Dan Carpenter spent five seasons with the Dolphins, making the Pro-Bowl in only his second season. In five seasons with the Dolphins, Carpenter missed only one extra point going 144 for 145.

35. Orange – Ted Ginn Jr., KR

Ted Ginn Jr. never lived up to the hype that his first-round billing, but he was still a dynamic kick returner in his career. In his short-lived Dolphins career, Ginn had seven combined rushing and receiving touchdowns and three return touchdowns. Not great for a first-round pick.

36. Aqua Green –  Marcus Thigpen, KR

Marcus Thigpen was fun to watch. The former Canadian Football League star was a dynamic returner for the Dolphins in his two seasons with the team. In his rookie year, Thigpen had over 1,300 return yards and two touchdowns.
