Miami Dolphins general manager Dennis Hickey addressed the media last night following the end of the 2014 NFL Draft.http://www.thephinsider.com/2014/5/11/5 ... conference
Starting off in the fourth round, we added Walt Aikens out of Liberty. He was a player that we watched closely. Again, with a lot of these guys, several of these guys were from small schools. Our scouts do a great job of digging under every rock and going through every school and trying to find good players wherever we can find them. Walt Aikens was one of those players. I first saw him at the Senior Bowl as we watched him and did a lot more work on him. We really liked the skillset that he brings, a tall, physical corner that has ball skills and is really productive. We really envision him as a special teams contributor. We really liked what he brought in that aspect. (He) was one of those players who we brought in for a visit. Again, with a lot of small-school players, we want to put them in our building, get them with our coaches (and) get them in our environment to get a good feel for them and how they will fit in our locker room. He did a great job when he came in there.
