Former Navy football standout Malcolm Perry conducted a Zoom conference call with members of the media covering the Miami Dolphins on Saturday night.
Miami selected Perry in the seventh round of the NFL Draft using a pick previously acquired from the Kansas City Chiefs. The record-setting Navy quarterback was taken with the 246th overall selection in the three-day draft.
It went down to the wire for Perry as there were only nine more remaining picks, all of which were compensatory. Had the American Athletic Conference 2019 Offensive Player of the Year not been drafted, he would have been quickly signed as a priority free agent as several teams had already reached out about going that route.
