The Miami Dolphins announced the signing of rookie running back Kenyan Drake on Thursday. The signing of Drake marks the completion of the contract signing for the Dolphins' entire 2016 Draft class, with all eight players now under contract.

Drake, Miami’s third-round pick, was selected with the 73rd overall pick. A four-year letterman at Alabama, Drake carried the ball 233 times for 1,495 yards, with 18 touchdowns in his college career. He also caught 46 passes for 570 yards and four touchdowns, along with 19 kickoffs for an 26.6 yards per return with one touchdown.

Drake was forced to sit out Thursday’s minicamp practice after sustaining an injury on Wednesday. It appears to have been a hamstring issue for Drake, but he is expected to be ready fro training camp at the end of July.

Drake joins first-round pick (13th overall) offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil, second-round pick (38th overall) cornerback Xavien Howard, third-round pick (86th overall) wide receiver Leonte Carroo, sixth-round pick (186th overall) wide receiver Jakeem Grant, sixth-round pick (204th overall) cornerback Jordan Lucas, seventh-round pick (223rd overall) quarterback Brandon Doughty, and seventh-round pick (231st overall) tight end Thomas Duarte in being officially members of the team with signed contracts.
