The Miami Dolphins’ second fourth-round pick of the 2018 NFL Draft is in and they have picked up Kalen Ballage, RB, Arizona State. The move fills another of the Dolphins needs while adding talent to the roster.

Earlier in the fourth round, the Dolphins picked up Notre Dame tight end Durham Smythe,

In four years at Arizona State, Ballage carried the ball 450 times for 1,984 yards with 27 touchdowns. He will come into the league as a backup behind Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore, which will give Ballage time to develop as a more consistent back, but his flashes at ASU clearly show he could become a perfect change of pace back for Drake.
