Walt Aikens has some work to do with the Dolphins.
The fourth-round draft pick today seemed to labor through practice and eventually left the field early, escorted by a trainer. It seems the heat might have gotten to him or he needs to get in a bit better shape. A source close to Aikens said the defensive back suffered from dehydration and that he hopes to get back on the field tomorrow.
But at least he's signed.
Aikens just now agreed to a four-year deal with the Dolphins, making him the highest draft pick to agree with the team so far. Aikens is also the fifth of eight draft picks signed.
The unsigned draft picks are first-rounder Ja'Wuan James, second-rounder Jarvis Landry and third-rounder Billy Turner.
