Tony Lippett is following in the footsteps of his defensive back father, former defensive back Ronnie Lippett (NE) in his journey to the NFL.  An intriguing prospect, Lippett is a project with tremendous upside that played both ways for Michigan State at wide receiver and defensive back. He also is a tremendous special teams player that blocked a field goal against the Baylor Bears in the 2014 Cotton Bowl.  He’d be selected in the 5th round by the Miami Dolphins, who decided to turn him into a full-time cornerback. He quickly started turning heads in camp with the team, and made the roster. In 2015, he made 14 tackles and a pass deflection in limited action.
