Dolphins Agree to Terms with First-Round CB Noah Igbinoghene

While a number of teams are in a rush as they are still looking to ink draft picks, the Dolphins have done an excellent job in that area, and today announced they have inked first-round cornerback Noah Igbinoghene.

The Dolphins have agreed to terms with first-round cornerback Noah Igbinoghene, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. Igbinoghene was the No. 30 pick of the draft. Miami’s agreement makes it three for three on first-round picks under a covenant for employment, and just 11 first-round picks signed in the entire NFL.

The Dolphins turned former first-round selections brought in by a previous regime into new draft capital, spending it on Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, USC tackle Austin Jackson and Igbinoghene, who slots in as a starting nickel corner in Miami’s revamped secondary.

It’s a big deal for the team to have all three picks under contract before any sort of camp starts, as it means they will be there from day one, learning both the offense and defense just like the rest of the players on the team.
