MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. – Miami Dolphins rookie safety Jevon Holland has been a standout so far in training camp.

The second-round pick from the University of Oregon has made three interceptions, including one this week in a joint practice with the Chicago Bears.

Holland is one of five picks the Dolphins made in the first two rounds of the draft, and all could play significant roles as rookies.

The progress of several has been slowed by injuries.

But Holland has taken snaps with the first team while he competes for playing time with veteran Jason McCourty.
