The Miami Dolphins have announced the signing of two of their 2021 NFL Draft picks. Both seventh-round selections, offensive tackle Larnel Coleman from UMass and running back Gerrid Doaks from Cincinnati have agreed to their deals. Miami has five draft picks remaining to sign, including their two first-round selections, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle from Alabama and outside linebacker Jaelan Phillips from Miami.

The team also announced four undrafted free agent signings, adding cornerback Jaytlin Askew, defensive tackle Jerome Johnson, guard Robert Jones, and fullback Carl Tucker. They join the previously announced signing of tight end Jibri Blount, who played basketball at North Carolina Central.

The Dolphins are holding their rookie minicamp this weekend.

Askew joins the Dolphins after being a four-year player at Georgia Tech. He recorded 33 tackles and one pass defensed in 40 games played. He also worked on punt coverage as a gunner.

Johnson played four years at Indiana, appearing in 45 games with 29 starts. He recorded 111 career tackles, 13.5 sacks, one interception, one forced fumble, two fumble recoveries, and a blocked field goal during his collegiate career.

Jones played in 20 games with 18 starts in two years at Middle Tennessee State after beginning his college career at Highland Community College in Kansas. He started all 10 games at Highland in 2018.

Tucker transferred to Alabama in 2020 as a graduate student after playing four years at North Carolina. He played in 45 games in his collegiate career, playing primarily as a tight end, with 36 receptions for 549 yards and four touchdowns.
