DAVIE, Fla. – The Miami Dolphins and Jaylen Waddle have reached an agreement.

The Fins announced Friday that they have inked their top draft pick to a 4-year deal.

Waddle was taken with the No. 6 overall pick in the draft.

The speedster played three seasons at Alabama where he caught 106 passes for 1,999 yards and 17 touchdowns in 34 collegiate games.

The Dolphins hope that Waddle will have instant chemistry with his former college quarterback Tua Tagovailoa.
