Following the Miami Dolphins’ four picks in the NFL draft, they immediately began work on adding undrafted free agents that will help fill the team’s boot camp roster this offseason.
The Dolphins, according to a league source, are expected to sign: Arkansas guard/center Ty Clary, Ole Miss wide receiver Braylon Sanders, South Carolina running back ZaQuandre White, Minnesota offensive lineman Blaise Andries, Arizona State tackle Kellen Diesch, Oregon safety Verone McKinley III, FIU punter Tommy Heatherly, Louisiana Tech defensive back Elijah Hamilton and Texas A&M-Commerce defensive back Kader Kohou.
“We’re working on it here when the draft is over,” Dolphins general manager Chris Grier said Saturday night after Miami’s four picks. “We will be signing players as usual and preparing for the rookie minicamp.”
With just four draft picks, the Dolphins have both the roster space and owner Steve Ross’ willingness to spend to their advantage on other teams looking to sign top undrafted prospects.
“At the end of the day, the good players that are left are always very competitive with the money,” Grier said.
Last year, the Dolphins gave offensive lineman Robert Jones $100,000 in guaranteed money as a priority free agent who ended up joining Miami’s active roster and kicking off the end of the regular season. Seventh-round picks usually net just over $100,000 in signing bonus money, but their contracts aren’t guaranteed.
The Dolphins will likely sign more than a dozen undrafted players to fill the training camp roster.
