The Miami Dolphins opted for small-college talent on the final day of the NFL draft Saturday, adding a cornerback, tight end, linebacker, receiver and defensive end.

Their selections included Liberty cornerback Walt Aiken in the fourth round, Montana linebacker Jordan Tripp in the fifth round, Coastal Carolina receiver Matt Hazel in the sixth round, and defensive end Terrence Fede of Marist in the seventh round.

New general manager Dennis Hickey also added one major-college player, Georgia tight end Arthur Lynch in the fifth round.

The Dolphins took two other Southeastern Conference players earlier — Tennessee right tackle Ja’Wuan James in the first round and LSU receiver Jarvis Landry in the second round. North Dakota State tackle Billy Turner was selected in the third round.
