The Miami Dolphins have signed three of nine players selected in the 2013 draft.

Linebacker Jelani Jenkins, kicker Caleb Sturgis and cornerback Don Jones signed their four-year contracts on Tuesday.

Jenkins was the Dolphins' first fourth-round selection (104th overall) in the 2013 draft. Based on the salary template for rookies he's supposed to receive a four-year contract that pays him $2.57 million, and features a signing bonus of $472,688.

The former University of Florida standout, who started 31 games for the Gators, is expected to compete with Phillip Wheeler, Koa Misi, Josh Kaddu and Jason Trusnik for a starting outside linebacker spot, and be a core special teams contributor as a rookie.

Sturgis, another Gator, was the second of Miami’s two fifth-round selections (166th overall). Sturgis should receive a four-year contract worth $2.24 million, which includes a $144,560 signing bonus.

During his career at UF Sturgis made 70 of 88 field goal attempts which set school records, while his 70 made field goals also placed seventh on the Southeastern Conference all-time record chart.

Sturgis will compete with Dan Carpenter for the kicking job, and considering his contract is one-fifth of Carpenter's salary for 2013 accuracy on kicks won't be the only deciding factor in that position battle.

Jones, who played safety at Arkansas State University, was the Dolphins' only seventh round pick (250th overall). The Dolphins plan to use him as a cornerback, primarily in the nickel package.

Jones' deal is likely worth $2.145 million, and includes a $45,895 million signing bonus.

The Dolphins have roughly $7.9 million to spend on the nine players in the 2013 draft class.
