The Miami Dolphins have made their fourth and final selection in the 5th round of the 2015 NFL Draft by adding wide receiver Tony Lippett from Michigan State. Lippett is the 20th pick of the 5th round, going 156th overall.

The pick rounds off a busy day for the Dolphins with the addition of offensive guard Jamil Douglas in the 4th round and cornerback Bobby McCain, running back Jay Ajayi and safety Cedric Thompson in the 5th round.

On Thursday night wide receiver Devante Parker from Louisville was selected in the 1st round, followed by defensive tackle Jordan Phillips in the 2nd round on Friday night, in a trade that saw Miami scoop up two additional picks in the 5th round while sending away their 6th round choice.

The Dolphins did not have a 3rd round draft choice due to the trade with the New Orleans Saints for wide receiver Kenny Stills. The team also lost their 6th round pick in the trade with the Philadelphia Eagles in the second round, while the Dolphins sent their 7th round selection and Mike Wallace in return for Minnesota's 5th round pick. This is the team's final draft pick in the 2015 NFL Draft.
