FIU Player tries out for the Miami Dolphins

Peter Holland Jr./ Contributing Writer

As the NFL Draft is behind us now, All first year players drafted or undrafted were reported to their team’s rookie mini-camp this past weekend. Even though no FIU player was drafted this year, they still have the opportunity to try out for a NFL Team  as a undrafted free agent. That also includes former starting offensive tackle  for the Golden Panthers David Delsoin. At 6’6 313 pounds, this Hollywood native has been invited to try out for the Miami Dolphins this past weekend.  With the Dolphins in need of more help at the offensive line position, Delsoin has the opportunity to compete for a rookie contract, so he can compete for a roster spot during training camp, which starts in July.

Delsoin started  in the total of 19 games in his FIU career at left tackle and right guard. Injuries prevented him from playing in his final year last season as he started only three games.  At his pro day , he weighed in at 6’5 308 pounds. He ran a  5.47 in the forty yard dash and  did twenty total reps  during the 225 pound bench press. What the Dolphins are getting is a player with NFL size, leadership, versatility, and athletic ability because of his basketball background when fully healthy. FIU is known to produce players from the diamond in the rough such as  starting wide reciever for the  Indianapolis Colts T.Y. Hilton and starting free safety for the Jacksonville Jaguars Jonathan Cyprien. Can David Delsoin make a name for himself in the NFL despite going undrafted. Will we see Delsoin in a Miami Dolphins uniform? Anything is possible, but we have to wait and see.
