Miami Dolphins Tales From The Deep


Troy Stradford was a fourth-round draft choice of the Miami Dolphins in 1987. Only 5-9, the running back out of Boston College made up for a lack of size with tremendous speed, vision and confidence. After beating out former first-round draft choice Lorenzo Hampton to become Miami’s starting running back, Stradford’s performance far exceeded his draft position as he racked up more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage and 7 touchdowns on his way to being named the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year. Diving in the Tank, Troy shares how befriending Mark Clayton nearly caused him to get cut before his final preseason game as a rookie, explains a valuable life lesson taught to him by Hall of Fame Defensive End Bruce Smith, and candidly expresses strong feelings towards former Dolphins first-round pick, Sammie Smith.
