By Matt MaioccoThe Dolphins have a long history of drafting players, and they have been pretty successful in their effort.
But the team’s newest pick in the draft, cornerback A.J. McCarron, is in a class of his own.
The draft has been a long time coming for the Dolphins.
Miami has drafted six players in the first three rounds in the past 15 years.
But only two have made it to the NFL.
The first, A.D. Jennings, was taken by the Colts in the fourth round of the 2000 draft.
The second, Andre Reed, was picked in the fifth round of that same draft by the Rams in 2002.
Both players made it into the NFL after the 2008 season.
The Dolphins drafted cornerback A,D.
Johnson in the second round in 2005.
He made it through four seasons and spent two seasons with the Browns.
He has since signed with the Colts, where he was a backup for three seasons.
McCarron was taken in the seventh round of this year’s draft by Cleveland.
He spent four seasons with Cleveland, starting 10 games in 2012.
He also has spent time with the 49ers and Titans.
McCarns career started out slow, as he spent four years with the Ravens.
But he came out of retirement and made the Pro Bowl in 2012 and 2013.
He finished his career with 5,872 yards and 33 touchdowns.
McCurron played for the Browns from 2004 to 2011, but he spent most of his career in Baltimore.
He was traded to the Dolphins last season and will be an unrestricted free agent.
The Dolphins are hoping that they can get him to their front office to help them find a new defensive coordinator.
