Many were shocked when Devlin was not drafted back in April, which may mean NFL teams knew something no one else did.
Devlin is battling back from a wrist injury, which may have been the reason for his undrafted status.
The Dolphins will still bring in a veteran QB to compete, but bringing in Devlin was a perfect situation.
As an undrafted free agent, Devlin is a low-risk, high-reward type of player.
As a senior at Delaware, Devlin threw 22 TDs to just three INTs and completed 68 percent of his passes.
Devlin is an extremely accurate QB but lacks arm strength and has a lanky frame at 6'3", 220 pounds. He is very similar to former Miami Dolphins QB Chad Pennington.
Basically, what I am saying is that Devlin is the complete opposite from current Dolphins QB Chad Henne, which is a very good thing. Henne is known for his big arm but is very inaccurate.
Now, I am not saying Devlin will step right in and be the Dolphins' Week 1 starter against the New England Patriots. However, Devlin has a real shot at being the Dolphins' No. 3 QB on the depth chart.
Devlin also provides the Dolphins the chance to see a different style of QB and possibly build to the future.
So please do not go off the ledge and start calling for Devlin to start and that he is a million times better than Henne, because right now, he is nowhere near as good as Henne.
However, the signing is safe and gives the Dolphins a young QB to provide some competition. Competition is what the Dolphins front office is preaching this season, so that is what the Dolphins are looking for out of Devlin.
