The Dolphins signed two more draft picks Friday.

Fifth-round pick Nolan Carroll, a cornerback, and seventh-round selection ILB Austin Spitler signed contracts.

Terms of the deals were not disclosed, although the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports Spitler will sign a four-year deal with a base value of $1.83 million.

In PFW's 2010 Draft Preview, personnel analyst Nolan Nawrocki wrote that Carroll, who played at Maryland, "is a very raw, straight-linish converted receiver with starter-caliber size, length and explosive movement skills but is still developing a feel for the cornerback position and lacks production on the ball."
