As the draft closed yesterday, the coverage networks focused on players who might get drafted and players that would not. While I contemplate my final grade and opinions on the first draft for Jeff Ireland and Bill Parcells, the duo have not finished shopping. With the draft over, it is time to move on to the undrafted signings.
The Miami Dolphins got off to a quick start, as did all teams, but just as quickly slowed down. This is the list so far:
Kelly Poppinga – LB – Brigham Young
Davone Bess – WR – Hawaii
Jayson Foster – QB – Georgia Southern
Mike Byrne – OT – Delaware
Dan Gore – OT – Boise St.
Dan Carpenter – K – Montana
After the draft Jeff Ireland made a brief appearance and talked about two of the drafted rookies. Ireland said that 4th round guard Shawn Murphy will play on the right side and that Jalen Parmale is penciled in as the 3rd running back.
The Dolphins are surely going to be busy over the next few days as they iron out the roster and await veteran cuts at the end of May.
