The 2016 NFL Draft is complete and the Miami Dolphins are already hard at working trying to land a few coveted undrafted free agents. NFL teams start trying to sign these UDFAs the second the draft ends, although the moves won't officially be announced for a few days.
While most UDFAs end up being little more than camp bodies, there are players that make the 53-man roster each season. The UDFAs all went undrafted for reason, but they all have the potential to make it in the NFL in some role. Sometimes, teams strike gold with an Arian Foster or Tony Romo.
We have every player the Dolphins have reportedly signed below, plus a brief write-up about the more notable additions.
Akil Blount, LB, FAMU
James Burgess, LB, Louisville
Ruben Carter, OL, Florida State
Ryan Di Salvo, LS, San Jose State
Tyler Gray, LB, Boise State
Gabe Hughes, TE, Florida Tech
Farrington Huguenin, DL, Kentucky
Marshall Koehn, K, Iowa
Lafayette Pitts, CB, Pitt
Rashawn Scott, WR, Miami (FL)
Brandon Shippen, DB, Temple
James Burgess is an interesting pickup for the Dolphins, as the former Louisville star could give them depth at linebacker or shift over to a role in the secondary or on special teams. He finished second on the Cardinals with 92 tackles and 9.5 for a loss, and grew up just outside Miami in Florida City.
University of Miami (FL) wideout Rashawn Scott (52 catches, 695 yards as a senior) is another local product to watch, though he will have his work cut out for him trying to make the roster with the Fins already having a crowded receiver corps.
