TEMPE, Ariz. — Morgan State offensive tackle Joshua Miles and Temple defensive end Michael Dogbe came off the board with the Arizona Cardinals’ back-to-back picks, at 248th and 249th, in the seventh round of the 2019 NFL Draft.

Miles measured 6-foot-5 and 314 pounds at the combine, the second year in a row Arizona drafted a project tackle in the last round. Last year, the Cardinals selected Cincinnati offensive tackle Korey Cunningham.

“When I was 7 years old, I told my mom I was going to play professional football after a rec league practice. I said, like, ‘Mom, this is what my life is going to be.’ I’m just so happy it happened,” Miles said.

This year, Miles is the only small-school selection by the Cardinals in the draft, and he admitted to being a raw prospect.

“His size really jumps out on tape,” Arizona GM Steve Keim said. “He’s got some of the longer arms I’ve seen, 36 inches, 11-(inch) hands. He’s just scratching the surface.”

Dogbe finished 2018 with 72 tackles, adding 7.0 sacks and three forced fumbles.

The 6-foot-5, 285-pound end played with third-year Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick in college. Dogbe said the Cardinals saw him as a 3-technique in defensive coordinator Vance Joseph’s scheme.

“He is like a lot of Temple players, extremely tough, passionate,” Keim said.
