Dolphins Go Outside With Pick 2

The Miami Dolphins took all of about 30 seconds to make their 2nd round selection.  Commissioner Roger Goodell marched to the podium accompanied by Dolphin great Dan Marino who read the pick.  As Marino leaned into the mic amid a splattering of NY boos, he announced Utah OLB Koa Misi.

At 6′ 3″, Misi is a pass rushing monster with a non-stop motor similar to the motor that the Dolphins drafted in day with Odrick.  Misi will have a solid shot at the starting outside LB spot that was left vacant when the Phins let Joey Porter go on the eve of free agency.

Reported to be one of the bestt athletes in Utah football history, Misi a 251 pound 4-3 DE is expected to easily transition to a 3-4 OLB.  Possessing a solid combination of coverage and tackling skills to go along with his pass rushing skills, Misi should see plenty of early action in 2010.

Misi fills a big need on the Dolphins defense….and is yet another Mike Nolan type of player.  Fast off the edge with a very quick first move and step.  Nolan loves to incorporate blitz schemes into his defense and Misi will help the Dolphins defense evolve into a unit that moves upfield and not back.

    Misi is a GREAT pickup for us…maybe will prove to be the best selection for us in this draft. High motor, sack specialist, played 4-3 DE but also played standing up many times in an OLB roll, either rushing or dropping back in coverage. All other “OLB” in the draft were actually DE who the media believed would make easy transitions to OLB, so everyone is a project, which is probably why the trifecta didn’t want to spend a high pick on an “OLB” (picked Odrick, since he will be playing, essentially, the same position he did in college), but Misi, since he did basically play OLB, will probably have the easiest transition to OLB. Also, I’ll tell you one person who is pissed that we took Misi…Belichick!!! He was labeled as a “Belichick prototype OLB”, and I’m sure would have gone to the Pats on their very next pick. Great pickup, Dolphins!!!
