Former Maryland cornerback Isaac Goins has joined the NFL's Miami Dolphins, his college coach Randy Edsall announced via Twitter on Sunday morning.
Really happy for Issac Goins as he becomes a Miami Dolphin. @AJFrancis410 take good care of your fellow teammate!— Randy Edsall (@RandyEdsall) May 11, 2014
Goins went undrafted in the seven rounds of this week's 2014 NFL Draft.
The senior finished this past year with 51 total tackles and two interceptions for the Terrapins. Following a season-ending injury to fellow senior cornerback Dexter McDougle in Week 3, Goins became the veteran staple for a unit that had to endure a number of setbacks during the 2013 season.
McDougle was drafted in the third round of the NFL Draft by the New York Jets.
As for Goins, he was tied for second on the team with 18 reps in the bench press during Maryland's pro day. He also registered a 31-inch vertical leap and a 10-foot, one-inch broad jump. He is listed at 5-11 and weighs 190 pounds.
A number of Goins' teammates congratulated him on Twitter following Edsall's announcement, including defensive lineman Quinton Jefferson and former teammate A.J. Francis, who also happens to be a member of the Dolphins.
