Dolphins signed two seventh-round picks and 14 un-draft free agents before rookie minicamp

The Miami Dolphins announced they signed their two seventh-round draft picks out of linebacker Cameron Goode and quarterback Skylar Thompson early Friday morning before the start of the rookie minicamp.

On the third day of the draft on April 30, out of California, Goode was selected with the number 224 pick, and Thompson, the Kansas state signal-caller, was picked on 247.

Goode was a three-year starter for the Golden Bears, earning second-team All-Pac-12 honors as a graduate student in 2021. In his college career, Good made a total of 170 tackles, 21 sacks, two interceptions, 12 passes defended, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Thompson, who will be a 25-year-old rookie until June 4, was a four-year starter for the Wildcats, where he became the only player in school history with more than 6,000 career passing and 1,000 rushing yards. He started 40 career games with a total of 7,134 passing yards and 42 passing touchdowns, while adding 1,087 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns.

The Dolphins have two other rookies from their smaller draft class yet to be signed, third-round linebacker Channing Tindall, a Georgia Product, and fourth-round wide receiver Eric Ezukanma from Texas Tech.

Miami also announced Friday that it has signed 14 free agents: Minnesota offensive lineman Blaise Andries, Illinois defensive lineman Owen Carney, Arkansas offensive lineman Ty Clary, Idaho State tight end Tanner Conner, Arizona State offensive lineman Kellen Dish, Louisiana Tech cornerback Eliza Hamilton, FIU punter Tommy Heatherley, UM linebacker Deandre Johnson, Texas A&M-Commerce cornerback Kader Kohou, Oregon safety Veron McKinley, Ole Miss wide receiver Breylon Sanders, Nebraska defensive lineman Ben Still, South Carolina Zacquandre White and Virginia Tech defensive lineman Jordan Williams is trailing. ,

Johnson, on top of finishing his college career with the Hurricanes, is a Miami Southridge alum. Carney played at Miami Central’s high school.

Dolphins have 21 possibilities invited to a rookie minicamp for a tryout. Some intriguing names: former Ohio State wide receiver KJ Hill, who has 10 NFL catches over the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers, and cornerback Sam Beal, who played for the New York Giants in 2019 and 2021.

Among players with trying local ties, former FAU Kerith White, North Broward prep grad and NC State wide receiver CJ Riley and FIU receiver Bryce Singleton are trailing.
