Dolphins agree to terms with 30th-overall pick Noah Igbinoghene

The Miami Dolphins have their most valuable recent draft picks under contract.

The Dolphins have agreed to terms with first-round cornerback and No. 30 overall pick Noah Igbinoghene, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed of the situation. Igbinoghene's four-year deal is worth $11.25 million and includes a $5.74 million signing bonus.

Miami's agreement makes it three for three on first-round picks under a covenant for employment, and just 12 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.

As the third corner in a group that also includes Xavien Howard and offseason acquisition Byron Jones, Igbinoghene doesn't have to meet sky-high expectations early but could be in a position to thrive. Getting his contract done ahead of the start of camp also makes for one less task to worry about accomplishing in a most unusual of offseasons.
