Fins Sign Sixth & Seventh Round Picks
MIAMI (CBSMiami.com) – The Miami Dolphins still haven’t come to terms with their first round draft pick Mike Pouncey, but the team has announced the signings of three lower round picks.
The Dolphins signed sixth round pick Charles Clay, seventh round pick Frank Kearse, and seventh round pick Jimmy Wilson late Wednesday.
Clay is expected to play an H-back position where he’s able to line up at both fullback and tight-end for the Dolphins. Clay stands 6’3” and weighs 239 pounds and played tailback, fullback, tight end, split receiver and wildcat quarterback at Tulsa.
Kearse is one of the bigger players headed to camp, not named Paul Soliai. Kearse went to Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, Alabama and was a second-team All-SWAC performer last season.
Wilson is the most controversial prospect the Fins have signed in a long time. Wilson spent two years in jail and went through two murder trials before finishing his career at Montana. His story made national headlines and he’s the oldest rookie in Fins camp.
Fins general manager Jeff Ireland said he did his research on Wilson and called him “an explosive hitter.”
