Malcolm Perry becomes 8th draft pick to sign

The Miami Dolphins returned to business yesterday signing Malcolm Perry to his rookie 4-year deal. He becomes the eighth of Miami’s 2020 draft haul to sign.

The former NAVY QB and utility-man was the Dolphins final selection of the 2020 NFL draft, and the 246th pick overall. It was previously believed that Perry would not sign his contract until he received a pro sports waiver from the Secretary of Defense.

Malcolm Perry is a wildcard

Malcolm Perry projects as either a change of pace back or a slot receiver for the Dolphins having excelled in college with the ball in his hands and has received a lot of hype amid comparisons with Wes Welker and Julian Edelman. His dynamic play-making ability makes him an interesting project for Miami.

While there has been no official confirmation the Secretary of Defense has issued the waiver, it is believed that this is the case. Perry rushed for 4,359 yards and 40 touchdowns in his time at Navy, as well as passing for 1,311 yards and 10 touchdowns.

First-rounders Noah Igbinoghene (CB) and Austin Jackson (T), along with second-rounder Robert Hunt (G) remain unsigned.
