Dolphins sign two seventh-round picks and 14 undrafted free agents ahead of rookie minicamp

The Miami Dolphins announced they signed their two seventh-round draft picks, outside linebacker Cameron Goode and quarterback Skylar Thompson, on Friday morning ahead of the start of rookie minicamp.

Goode, out of California, was selected with the No. 224 pick on Day 3 of the draft on April 30, and Thompson, the Kansas State signal-caller, was taken at 247.

Goode was a three-year starter for the Golden Bears, earning second-team All-Pac-12 honors as a graduate student in 2021. In his college career, Goode totaled 170 tackles, 21 sacks, two interceptions, 12 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and two fumble recoveries.

Thompson, who will be a 25-year-old rookie as of June 4, was a four-year starter for the Wildcats, where he became the only player in school history with more than 6,000 career passing and 1,000 rushing yards. He started 40 career games, totaling 7,134 passing yards and 42 passing touchdowns, while adding 1,087 rushing yards and 26 rushing touchdowns.

The Dolphins have two other rookies from their small draft class yet to be signed, third-round linebacker Channing Tindall, a Georgia product, and fourth-round wide receiver Erik Ezukanma from Texas Tech.

Miami also announced on Friday that it signed 14 undrafted free agents: Minnesota offensive lineman Blaise Andries, Illinois defensive lineman Owen Carney, Arkansas offensive lineman Ty Clary, Idaho State tight end Tanner Conner, Arizona State offensive lineman Kellen Diesch, Louisiana Tech cornerback Elijah Hamilton, FIU punter Tommy Heatherly, UM linebacker Deandre Johnson, Texas A&M-Commerce cornerback Kader Kohou, Oregon safety Verone McKinley, Ole Miss wide receiver Braylon Sanders, Nebraska defensive lineman Ben Stille, South Carolina running back ZaQuandre White and Virginia Tech defensive lineman Jordan Williams.

Johnson, on top of finishing his college career with the Hurricanes, is a Miami Southridge alum. Carney played in high school at Miami Central.

The Dolphins have 21 prospects invited to rookie minicamp for a tryout. Some intriguing names: Former Ohio State wide receiver K.J. Hill, who has 10 NFL catches over the past two seasons with the Los Angeles Chargers, and cornerback Sam Beal, who has played for the New York Giants in 2019 and 2021.

Among players with local ties trying out, former FAU running back Kerrith Whyte, North Broward Prep grad and N.C. State wide receiver CJ Riley and FIU receiver Bryce Singleton.
