The Miami Dolphins made a savvy signing post-7th round with Division II wide receiver/special teamer, Matt Cole. The McKendree University standout scored 12 receiving touchdowns his senior year and added a punt return and kick-off return score.
While able to be utilized as a slot receiver, as well as a threat on the ground, Cole could make his bones as a special teams gunner, much like a New England Patriots perennial pro-bowler in Matthew Slater.
With Walt Aikens now not in Miami's plans, the gunner role is open, and Cole could sneak his way onto the 53-man roster in that capacity, and potential find himself sniffing an offensive formation or two.
