Dolphins sign rookie guard Shawn Murphy

The Dolphins will announce the signing of offensive guard Shawn Murphy in the coming hour or so. No financial terms are yet available.

Murphy, the team's foruth-round draft pick, is expected to compete for a starting job this year along with veteran Steve McKinney and darkhorse second-year player Ikechuku Ndukwe.

Props to anyone who can tell me where Ndukwe went to school. Murphy, the son of former Atlanta slugger Dale Murphy, attended Utah State.

The Dolphins have now signed six of their nine draft picks, with second-rounders Phillip Merling and Chad Henne and third-rounder Kendall Langford still not on board.

Ndukwe went to Northwestern. He's the older brother of former Notre Dame and current Bengals safety Chinedum Ndukwe. He was signed by the New Orleans Saints as an undrafted free agent in 2005 and has spent time with the Redskins and Ravens. He was signed off the Ravens' practice squad in December when Andre Goodman was placed on IR I believe.

Man I have problems.
