DeVante Parker is the newest Miami Dolphin.

The Dolphins on Thursday evening drafted the Louisville standout with the No. 14 overall selection. The pick will surprise few, as the Dolphins were long rumored to be interested in bringing Parker aboard following his impressive performance at the Combine last February. He joins a Dolphins team that has added several pieces this offseason, including powerhouse defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, tight end Jordan Cameron and wide receiver Greg Jennings. The Dolphins also traded their 2015 third-round pick to New Orleans for wide receiver Kenny Stills. In turn, the team on March 13 dealt receiver Mike Wallace and a seventh-round selection to the Minnesota Vikings for a fifth-round pick.

Barring any trades, the Dolphins will next select at 47 overall in the second round on Friday night. Following that pick, the Dolphins won't draft again until Saturday morning, when they will pick at 114th overall, followed by the 149th and 150th selections.
