DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — The Miami Dolphins have busy stretch Saturday on the final day of the NFL draft, with five choices in a span of 42 picks.

They still need a cornerback, guard and linebacker. Miami took Louisville receiver DeVante Parker in the first round, and added Oklahoma nose tackle Jordan Phillips in the second round.

The selection of Phillips was a surprise, because Miami has other more pressing needs, and he was considered an underachiever with the Sooners. But the Dolphins are intrigued by his potential.

They had only two of the first 113 picks. But thanks to a trade Friday, they have four fifth-round picks.
