The Dolphins have selected linebacker Chris McCoy of Middle Tennessee State.
McCoy is 6-3 and 261 pounds.
"I'm good with my hands and I'm explosive off the ball," McCoy said. "I'm very good setting the edge and coming off the edge."
McCoy said the Dolphins told him he will be competing at weakside linebacker.
McCoy said Middle Tennessee State plays a base 4-3 scheme so he'll have to adjust to Miami 's 3-4.
