After a relatively quiet few weeks, the Dolphins have stepped up the pace of their rookie signings, locking up two more draft picks Friday to give them three in the past two days.
Cornerback Nolan Carroll, a fifth-round pick from Maryland, and linebacker Austin Spitler, a seventh-rounder from Ohio State, have agreed to terms, the team announced.
Both players were captains of their college teams. Carroll, a 5-foot-11, 204-pounder, is a native of Green Cove Springs who had 61 tackles (including 31 solo) as a senior.
Spitler, 6-3, 234, was a four-year letterman for the Buckeyes and finished his career with 82 tackles (35 solo), two sacks and an interception.
The two signings in addition to Thursday’s signing of fourth-round linebacker A.J. Edds means the Dolphins have four of their eight draft picks under contract.
