Dolphins take versatile Lippett with final pick in NFL draft
DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — With their final pick in the draft, Miami Dolphins have selected a receiver and cornerback.
Tony Lippett is both.
Michigan State’s most valuable player last season was the last of five picks Saturday for the Dolphins. Lippett played offense, defense and special teams in the Cotton Bowl last season to cap his college career.
Lippett was one of four picks in the fifth round by Miami. The others: Memphis cornerback Bobby McCain, Boise State running back Jay Ajayi and Minnesota safety Cedric Thompson.
In the fourth round, the Dolphins took Arizona State guard Jamil Douglas.
The Dolphins took Louisville receiver DeVante Parker in the first round, and added Oklahoma nose tackle Jordan Phillips in the second round.
