And then there was one. The Miami Dolphins are down to just running back Kenyan Drake left to sign to a rookie contract as the team completed deals with wide receiver Leonte Carroo (third-round pick) and tight end Thomas Duarte (seventh-round pick) on Tuesday. The Dolphins opened their first Organized Team Activity on the day.
Miami had previously signed first-round pick, offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil; second-round pick, cornerback Xavien Howard; sixth-round pick, wide receiver Jakeem Grant; sixth-round pick, cornerback Jordan Lucas; and seventh-round pick, quarterback Brandon Doughty.
Carroo was selected after four years at Rutgers. He played in 44 games, with 22 starts, in that span, catching 122 passes for 2,373 yards, and 29 touchdowns. As a senior, he caught 39 passes for 809 yards and 10 touchdowns, but was only able to play in eight games due to a suspension and an injury.
Duarte played at UCLA for three seasons, appearing in 38 games, with 22 starts. He tallied a career total of 97 receptions for 1,626 yards and 17 touchdowns. Last year, he caught 53 passes for 872 yards and 10 touchdowns as a junior.
Drake has signed an injury waiver with the Dolphins, which allows him to practice with the team prior to signing his contract. If an injury were to occur due to the practices, the Dolphins would be required to negotiate with him in good faith, as if the injury had not happened.
