PHILADELPHIA – The Miami Dolphins wrapped up their 2017 NFL draft with five of their seven overall picks being on the defensive side of the ball.

In fact, the Dolphins were the last team in the NFL to take an offensive player in this year's draft.

Miami waited until the fifth round to finally address the offensive side of the ball. The Dolphins picked Utah offensive guard Isaac Asiata, who's the cousin of NFL running back Matt Asiata. 

Miami had another fifth-round pick and used it to grab LSU defensive tackle Davon Godchaux.

The sixth-round pick was used on another defensive tackle, Vincent Taylor of Oklahoma State. 

The Dolphins finished their draft by picking Virginia Tech wide receiver Isaiah Ford in the seventh round.

Miami had previously picked three defensive players -- defensive end Charles Harris, linebacker Raekwon McMillan and cornerback Cordrea Tankersley -- over the first two days of the draft.
