Dolphins select Utah OLB Koa Misi

Koa Misi is Miami's second round pick in the 2010 NFL draft.

That obviously fills a need. The Dolphins had only Cameron Wake, Charlie Anderson, Erik Walden and Quentin Moses on the roster. Anderson is a career backup. Wake is unproven. The other two are backups.

Misi has a chance to come in and start and, well, that's the point.

Misi is 6-3 and 250. He comes from the same program that produced cornerback Sean Smith. The Dolphins like that program. Misi had five sacks and 9.5 tackles for losses among his 71 total stops in 2009.

Misi played mostly as a DE at Utah. But he's not worried about moving to OLB.

"I didn't play too much but I played three or four games at linebacker this past year and a couple games the year before that," Misi said. "I feel pretty comfortable at the linebacker position."

And what about dropping into coverage?

"Great! I feel comforable with dropping into coverage," he said.

How does Misi describe himself?

"I'm a hard worker. I like to learn and I'm very coachable. I listen very well and play even harder. This is my dream and I'm finally here. I'm ready to play."

Misi is of Tongan descent.

Misi's father often attended Koa's games. One time, the player said, his dad wanted him to get more motivated so he came onto the field and head-butted Misi. Misi was wearing a helmet at the time.

His full name, by the way, is Nawa'akoa Lisiate Foti Analseanoa Misi.

Patriots fans use the restroom when their team gets on the clock lol

I think there's a time when u just accumulate picks cuz your unsure what to pick.. I'm thinking Belicheat is sucking his thumb without Pioli

obesity is a big problem in america
obama should fine the picks

McCoy to the Brownssssss

Stop whinning all of you. Our D Line is now really solid. We have a solid LB and CB. We need a safety but I still see us picking up a vet after the draft and a rookie in the 4th or 5th round. He will ultimatley be a back up but a starter on Special Teams.

Damn...there goes Ben Tate...he is a stud. I am telling you TUNA will go offense and add weapons for Henne to out score competition. I think he goes Mike Williams if he is still there...looks a lot like Keyshawn.

73 on SI

Where the heck are the trades that are supposed to be happening?

Browns trade up prob to take Colt McCoy

Robby, I think the te pickup by the pats is a perfect fit for them. Would consider him as a fanasy choice.

Or not Montario Hardesty

Thks PO

Mike Williams will make the 4th, he;s a mess. Plenty of WRs left now. I wanted Tate

Well we got Brandon Marshall, top Wr in the league for Zane Beadles and a 2nd rounder....nice trade Bill!

JStew, I agree!! Hate to face that kid!!! But i think it's to the point where he's unsure what to pick!! But what the hell do I know... The guys won (what?) 4 superbowls!

FB , ti kanis ?? The dolphins love major wright and could be the pick at 73. If it is this plan is working to perfection.

Hoping one of

Morgan Burnett
Major Wright
Ricky Sapp
Cam Thomas
Al Woods
Everson Griffen
Myron Lewis
Chad Jones
Thaddeus Gibson

Are the pick at 73

Robby, IMO the pats are semi-rebuilding. And how do you rebuild? Draft picks! Belli ain't stupid.

Mando, any word on phins trades!???!!!

Major Wright would be a GOOD pick.

Phinlanta - I am fine with Dwyer too. Just saw Tate as the next big back going...and he was. Do you agree we should go offense next? I am not panicked at all over Safety. We will get someone and I think our current players are serviceable. Better then Gibril for sure.

Add Akwasi Onsu-Ansah to the list as well

NJ,

I am with you on Major Wright!!!! Also wouldn't mind Burnett or Jones... or even Cam Thomas at NT for 73!!!!

We are lookin good!

I think Tate should be our next score, or major wright, either will make me happy...we cam get the rest on Saturday

It kills me to read some of the post on this board.We finally draft solid if not flashy picks and some of these people act like this draft is a wash.I for one think this is a solid draft for us so far.NT check.OLB check.WR (via trade) check.It only gets better for us from here on out.

Bleed aqua and orange or go somewhere and DIE!!!

"Koi Misi" Sounds like a Island that Hot Ashleys from......When she gets home I'll check.....

Never heard of this kid but I am drinking the tuna kool-aid. I would have taken Mays for our safety needs that kid knocks heads off.

I'm starting to warm up to our picks. They might not light up the highlight reel, but they'll play solid and allow our homerun hitters like Dansby, Wake, and Vontae to make plays.

Golden Tate to Seahwaks

Jets r up, good luck Test and imimounts

A SPACE ODSSEY..........A MONKEY MOVIE ON TCM ,I NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE

Winners in the draft so far.... Bucs. Cards also making solid picks that will help them and of course, the Fish.

Pats now have 14 picks total, half of which are in rounds 1-3.

WHY do teams continually give up more value in draft picks than what they get in return??? WHY???

For example, like giving up 2 1st round picks for Dick Seymour - really?? For a player who has NEVER had more than 8 sacks in a year??

Ravens got Kindle and Cody. Seems like they took our draft

THE HEAT TRYING HARD AGAINST BOSTON NOT TO BE SWEPT .

Golden Taint on the way to Seattle, longggg way down the board

Finfan23, you mean they got YOUR draft? Jk, man.

Seattle looking pretty solid too

JPAO- Obviously you were right cuz Tate went first. Yes, Cobbs and Hilliard are not going to be the lead backs in two years when R & R are gone.
I went to every GT game this year, Dwyer is hard to bring down and is also a really good blocker

The seahawks are drafting SOLID.

Man, look at those slobs. Jets fans suck.

OK FINE NJ PHIN FAN I WILL LET YOU TONGUE BOX MY BUTTHOLE BUT ONLY THIS ONE TIME, REMEMBER I AM THE PITCHER AND YOU ARE THE CATCHER

Still some real srong picks on D left.

F*CK the Jets!!!

Major Wright would be ok with me. 1st two picks are ok. They know what they are doing.

well its pretty safe to say pete carrols haveing the best draft so far

dang just got back and looks like lee was drafted by the cowboys

Yeah ur a pitcher alright a pitcher full of s$&t

I
Hate ducasse!!!

PO,

DO YOU THINK THE STOCK MARKET IS FIXED,IT NEVER GOES DOWN .

whats with all the gay stuff?

Mando, get off of Jason Taylor's jock already, it is getting creepy...

Aloco as the pitcher you must watch the catcher. He will give you a few signs. He will wiggle a few fingers in between his legs for you to look at. Then you will know what to deliver to him.

is me or does espn have a hard on for the jets. it just seems that each of theor picks get a lot of attention

well maybe they are talking about trading into the third round

Makes me sick A. Cant get back in.

It's time to start moving the draft to a different city each year. Why should Jets goons get the spotlight each year?

ACE, THAT WAS FAKE ALOCO , JUSTIN IS MAD AT NJ .

Solid pick by the Rats.

Maken good money every day, just not as much as I would like.

good pick by NE, Meyers gave him the inside scoop. Spikes next to Mayo, Belicheat is rebuilding!
