DAVIE, Fla. (AP) - The Miami Dolphins have selected Michigan State receiver B.J. Cunningham in the sixth round of the NFL draft.

Cunningham, the Spartans' leading career receiver, had 79 catches last year for 1,306 yards and 12 touchdowns. In four seasons he made 218 receptions.

The Dolphins are looking for help at the position after trading top receiver Brandon Marshall last month to the Chicago Bears.
