The Miami Herald is reporting the Miami Dolphins have signed second round draft pick Jamar Taylor. According to the Herald's Adam H. Beasley, the cornerback's contract is a four-year, $3.6 million deal, with around $2 million in guaranteed money.

Taylor underwent sports hernia surgery last week, but is expected to be ready for training camp this July. He is taking part in Miami's Organized Team Activitiesm but is currently on the sideline doing rehab work.

The Dolphins selected three cornerbacks in the draft, with Taylor the highest pick. They also added Will Davis in the third round and Don Jones in the seventh. Taylor is expected to compete for a starting position once he is healthy. Currently, the team has free agent signing Brent Grimes and Richard Marshall, who spent most of last year on Miami's injured reserve list, taking the first team reps.

With Taylor signed, the Dolphins are left with first round draft pick, defensive end Dion Jordan, and third round picks, offensive lineman Dallas Thomas and cornerback Will Davis, remaing to bring under contract. Jordan is currently not allowed to take part in and team workouts, due to Oregon's quarter systems and league rules saying a player's final academic term must end prior to him joining the team.
