In order to trade up for Clay, the Dolphins traded their sixth-round pick to Green Bay (179) and swapped seventh-round picks (giving up the 218th pick and acquiring the 231st).

Clay, who stands 6-foot-3 and 239 pounds, is a versatile player who can line up at fullback or tight end. In a four-year career at Tulsa, he rushed for 911 yards and 10 touchdowns, while catching 189 passes for 2,544 yards and 28 touchdowns.

During four seasons at Tulsa, Clay, formerly a linebacker recruit from Little Rock, lined up at tailback, fullback, tight end, split receiver and Wildcat quarterback.

The Dolphins have now used all four draft picks on offense players — center Mike Pouncey, running back Daniel Thomas, receiver Edmond Gates and Clay.
