Since the AFL-NFL in 1970 - what Dolphin player was taken by the Dolphins with the highest draft pick ever, i.e. where he was chosen overall in the first round and what overall pick was it and in what year ?

In pre-1970, the answer is RB Jim Grabowski in 1966, not Rick Norton.

As for post 1970, I'll say CB Troy Vincent 1992 #7 overall.
