Fins Take DE Charles Harris With 1st Round Pick

PHILADELPHIA (AP)  - The Miami Dolphins addressed one of their many defensive needs by selecting Missouri end Charles Harris with the 22nd pick in the NFL draft.

The 6-3, 253-pound Harris is considered better as a pass rusher than against the run. He had seven sacks in 2015 and nine last year.

Harris joins a defense that allowed a franchise-record 6,122 yards last season even though Miami made the playoffs for the first time since 2008.

He'll likely be groomed as a replacement for five-time Pro Bowl end Cameron Wake, who is 35.

The Dolphins chose Harris over Alabama linebacker Reuben Foster, who was among the highly regarded defensive players still on the board.
