The Dolphins have begun signing their draft picks - inking 5th round pick John Nalbone to a 4 year deal, according to Scout.com.
Nalbone received a $173,000 signing bonus and his 2009 salary will be $310,000. It will jump to $395,000 in 2010, $480,000 in 2011, and $565,000 in 2012.
Nalbone, out of Monmouth University, is expected to compete for a roster spot at tight end - but it won't be easy. The Dolphins have Anthony Fasano, David Martin, and Joey Haynos as holdovers from last year. They also brought in an undrafted tight end to compete for a roster spot.
