NFL Draft Pick Signings: 5/10/20

We’ll keep track of today’s late round signings here:

  • The Dolphins have their fourth 2020 draftee under contract, having signed sixth-round long snapper Blake Ferguson to his four-year rookie deal. Ferguson operated as LSU’s top long snapper from 2016-19 and has been a highly regarded snapper for years. Although this is probably the sport’s lowest-profile position, Ferguson has excelled at it for a while. He came to LSU as the No. 1 long snapper recruit and ended his junior season as a first-team All-American. Shortly after selecting Ferguson, the Dolphins cut incumbent deep snapper Taybor Pepper.
