Dolphins add 18 rookie free agents


A notable defensive tackle prospect who went undrafted has found an NFL home.

The Dolphins signed 18 rookie free agents on Monday, including LSU’s Anthony Johnson, an interior defensive lineman who earned second-team All-SEC honors in 2013. However, the 21-year-old Johnson failed a drug test at the NFL Scouting Combine, according to Fox’s Jay Glazer.

If Johnson is to make the Dolphins’ roster, it could be as a reserve behind veterans Randy Starks, Jared Odrick and Earl Mitchell, who look to be Miami’s top three defensive tackles.

The Dolphins also reached deals with these rookie free agents: Alabama defensive back Deion Belue, Vanderbilt defensive back Steven Clarke, Virginia Tech linebacker Tariq Edwards, Arizona State offensive lineman Evan Finkenberg, Marshall tight end Harold Hoskins, Arkansas offensive lineman David Hurd, East Carolina linebacker Derrell Johnson, Temple defensive tackle Kamal Johnson, Illinois wide receiver Ryan Lankford, Utah State offensive lineman Tyler Larsen, South Florida defensive end Tevin Mims, Georgia defensive tackle Garrison Smith, Rutgers linebacker Marcus Thompson, New Mexico State offensive lineman Davonte Wallace, Oklahoma running back Damien Williams, Missouri linebacker Andrew Wilson and Georgia wide receiver Rantavious Wooten.

    Miami looks to be much improved this season and make the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

    Brock Jensen (QB) from NDSU should also be on this list.

    Funny…most of their draft picks are small school, and most of their UDFAs are big school! Like the Damien Williams signing. And love then name “Rantavious Wooten”! Rant! Rant! Woot! Woot!

    Wilson was a tackling machine at Mizzou, and a pretty big kid, could be a dark horse candidate to make the team as a backup LB/ST’er.

    I think a few of these players may make it. Good luck to them. Bill

    Why are so many SEC defensive players who earned All-SEC honors dropping so much in the draft?

    Who picks these guys?

    Hazel was drafted … Not an undrafted signing
