NFL Draft 2016: Kenyan Drake selected by the Miami Dolphins

The Miami Dolphins have gone to the running back position with their third-round selection as they have selected running back Kenyan Drake from the Alabama Crimson Tide in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Drake played behind Heisman Trophy winner Derrick Henry during his time in Tuscaloosa. His versatility is perhaps his strongest suit and will be a welcomed addition to the Dolphins offense after the loss of Lamar Miller to the Houston Texans in the offseason.

Drake joins Laremy Tunsil and Xavien Howard as the Dolphins' selections in the 2016 NFL Draft. He also is now the seventh Alabama player to be selected in this year's NFL Draft.

Good luck to Kenyan Drake in the NFL!
