Defensive tackle Kheeston Randall, a seventh-round pick out of Texas, signed with the Dolphins. Terms were not disclosed. A three-year starter for the Longhorns, he played in 47 games with 35 starts. Randall was credited with 98 tackles (49 solo), four sacks (31 yards) and 21.0 tackles for loss (66 yards). He also registered one forced fumble, deflected six passes and blocked two kicks.
San Diego has selected a defensive lineman in each of the last three drafts. That trend figures to continue, especially if the Chargers lose Antonio Garay and/or Tommie Harris in free agency. One name to watch is Kheeston Randall, the run stopper from Texas. His power and versatility could make him a key addition.
Texas DT Kheeston Randall is in Mobile, Ala., preparing for the Senior Bowl on Saturday at 3 p.m. on the NFL Network.
