Dolphins sign CB Will Davis

The Dolphins have signed cornerback Will Davis, a third-round pick from Utah State. The move was disclosed in the NFL’s Monday transaction report.

Davis (5-11, 186) intercepted five passes in 2012 for the Aggies. He’s one of three cornerbacks the Dolphins drafted in April. Ex-Falcon Brett Grimes and Richard Marshall are the Dolphins’ top veterans at cornerback.

Davis, 23, played just one year of high school football and two years on the FBS level in college. Asked whether Davis would take some time to develop, Dolphins G.M. Jeff Ireland expressed hope he would quickly become a contributor.

“I think guys develop in different stages in their career,” Ireland said after the selection of Davis, according to the club. “Obviously with his experience level you would think that he may be a little bit of a developmental player, but I think the guy has the skill set to play in this league. I think that with the great coaching that we have and the players around him, he will develop fast.”

All draft picks selected in Rounds Two through Seven receive four-year contracts. ... ill-davis/

The 93rd overall selection in the draft, Davis was projected as a last-day pick by most draft analysts but the Fins were desperate for cornerback depth.
