With the 2nd rounder they got from the Chargers, and lots of the upper echelon of athletes remaining, the Dolphins select...OLB Koa Misi, a LB from Utah.
And once again I said "huh?" I had never heard of this guy, either.
Scott Wright at DraftCountDown.com said of him "Named 1st Team All-MWC in 2009 after earning 2nd Team honors the year before --- Transfer from Santa Rosa Junior College, where he spent one season --- Father, Sione, played football for Hawaii --- A bit of a 'tweener who could project to either defensive end in a 4-3 or outside linebacker in a 3-4 at the next level --- Saw action at both end and tackle in college and was also used standing up at times --- Missed some time with a back injury in 2009 --- Didn't rack up eye-popping statistics or necessarily make a lot of game-changing plays but is a very intriguing prospect due to his impressive physical tools --- Classic Workout Warrior who will likely be selected earlier than he should be by some team that becomes infatuated with his potential."
I guess Miami was infatuated with him....right?
So, will he play LB? End? Maybe tackle? I have no earthly clue.
I suppose this guy could, maybe, possibly, be the replacement for JT. Or not.
