On Wednesday morning, the Dolphins struck a deal with second-round guard Robert Hunt, sealing the deal on their full 11-man draft class (Twitter link via ESPN.com’s Field Yates). Here’s the full rundown, via PFR’s tracker:
1-5: Tua Tagovailoa, QB (Alabama): Signed
1-18: Austin Jackson, T (Miami): Signed
1-30: Noah Igbinoghene, CB (Auburn): Signed
2-39: Robert Hunt, OL (Louisiana): Signed
2-56: Raekwon Davis, DL (Alabama): Signed
3-70: Brandon Jones, S (Texas): Signed
4-111: Solomon Kindley, OL (Georgia): Signed
5-154: Jason Strowbridge, DT (UNC): Signed
5-164: Curtis Weaver, DE (Boise State): Signed
6-185: Blake Ferguson, LS (LSU): Signed
7-246: Malcolm Perry, WR/RB (Navy): Signed
Per the terms of his slot at No. 39 overall, Hunt is set to earn $8.065MM on his four-year deal. Hunt was first-string for his full run at Louisiana-Lafayette, including stints at left guard, left tackle, and, most recently, right tackle. In his final year, he missed significant time with a groin injury – if it wasn’t for that, the versatile blocker could have been in the first round mix.
At 6’5″ and 323 pounds, Hunt already has the bulk to hang with the pros. The Dolphins have suggested that Hunt could begin his pro career on the inside or the outside, though he’s a logical fit to backstop Michael Dieter at right guard.
