The Dolphins’ first-round draft position was pushed back once again after another poor playoff win by the 49ers.

The value of the Miami Dolphins’ first-round pick from the San Francisco 49ers continues to decline.

With a second straight playoff win by the 49ers, the pick they send to the Dolphins will now be one of the last four first round picks of the upcoming NFL Draft.

San Francisco defeated the top-seeded Green Bay Packers, 13-10, in the NFC divisional round on Saturday night, and for the Dolphins, that means the top pick could be No. 29 as the 49ers advance to the NFC championship game. against Tampa Bay Buccaneers or Los Angeles Rams.

Other scenarios: 49ers lose and Cincinnati Bengals win AFC Championship game, pick 29; 49ers lose and Bengals lose, 30; 49ers lose in Super Bowl, 31; 49ers win Super Bowl, 32.

If San Francisco had lost on Saturday night at Lambo Field, the pick would have been decided at number 25.

For the third week in a row, the choice is negatively affected. If the Los Angeles Rams had maintained a lead in the regular season finale against the 49ers, San Francisco would have been eliminated with the No. 17 pick. choice further from #22.

The Dolphins own the 49ers’ pick, while the Philadelphia Eagles have the Miami pick due to two deals the Dolphins made with NFC teams last offseason ahead of the 2021 NFL Draft. Miami returned to 12th in San Francisco, sending the 3rd pick formerly held by the Houston Texans to the 49ers. A move from 12th to 6th followed when wide receiver Jaylen Waddle was selected to send the 2022 Dolphins first round player to Philadelphia.

The Dolphins are picking about 15 positions short of what they would be if they traded the 49ers pick for the Eagles instead of their own. Miami’s pick to go to Philadelphia in the upcoming draft is No. 15. The Dolphins also received a 2023 first-round pick from the 49ers in the deal.

Given Miami’s early offseason announcement that he would stay with quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, it’s unlikely the Dolphins would send that first-round pick to another team in exchange.

There are a number of offensive tackles and wide receivers that could go where the Dolphins pick as general manager Chris Grier and Miami’s incoming new coach look to meet the team’s needs.

In the NFL Draft, the 18 non-playoff teams are selected first, in reverse order of entry, with the lower chart strength serving as the tiebreaker. The 19–24 pick is then reserved for losing wildcard rounds in reverse order from regular season results. Picks 25-28 go to the losers of the division round, and so on, until the Super Bowl champion picks 32nd.
