For the first time since 2000, Michigan State had two wide receivers taken in the NFL Draft.
Keshawn Martin was taken in Saturday's fourth round by the Houston Texans, and his former teammate B.J. Cunningham completed the pair when he was chosen by the Miami Dolphins with the 13th pick (183rd overall) in the sixth round.
"I'm blessed to be in this situation and I can't wait to get started," Cunningham said.
The Dolphins leading returning receivers are Davone Bess and Brian Hartline, after Brandon Marshall was traded to the Bears.
The Dolphins have a new coach in Joe Philbin, and took quarterback Ryan Tannehill as the eighth overall pick. They have spent the rest of the draft putting players around Tannehill, as four of their six picks have been on the offensive side (so far). The Dolphins like Cunningham as a Z-receiver, and he was among those Miami was targeting the position.
"Feels GREAT to be a dolphin!! Fins up!!!" Cunningham posted on his Twitter.
Trenton Robinson was drafted just three picks before Cunningham at No. 180 to San Francisco.
In 2000, Plaxico Burress was taken in the first round by Pittsburgh and Gari Scott was taken in the fourth by Philadelphia.
Cunningham left MSU as the all-time leader in yards reciving (3,086) and receptions (218). He also had 25 touchdowns, good for second in school history. He was named second team All-Big Ten by the coaches and media in 2011.
