The Dolphins have done a decent job over the years of finding undrafted rookies who contribute for a couple of years, but we haven't found one who is more than a backup player. Here's hoping that we do get a head-turner this year. I do think LB Chase Allen did pretty decent job last year as an UDRookie. This year, they gave the biggest contract to CB Jalen Davis. Second highest contract was to LB Mike McCray.

The Dolphins did well sifting through undrafted free agents last season and found six that were good enough to play for them. That group included linebacker Chase Allen, who was an opening day starter.

This year, Miami signed a dozen or so rookies after the draft, and a few of them have already turned up in offseason work. Dolphins defensive coordinator Matt Burke said cornerback Jalen Davis, linebacker Mike McCray and linebacker Cayson Collins have all made an impression during their first few weeks on the field.

“We’ve had a couple of years in a row now where we’re getting the right type of (undrafted) guys that are putting the work in,” Burke said, crediting general manager Chris Grier and his scouting staff. “So I have no complaints with any of those guys, the work ethic, and what they’re trying to do out there. The nature of a rookie, they’re going to have some plays and they’re going to have some flubs and we’ve got to work through those.”
