There once was a wide receiver named B.J. Cunningham. Two dozen other players at his position were selected higher in the 2012 draft before Miami finally bit in the sixth round, and even the Dolphins lost interest by the end of training camp, cutting the kid loose with little more than a $106,000 signing bonus spent on the experiment.
