Dolphins select LB Josh Kaddu in fifth round

The Dolphins are working their board and so far the work has not yielded any wide receiver help.

It did just get them a linebacker -- Josh Kaddu from Oregon.

Kaddu has 10 career sacks. That's more sacks than third-round pick Olivier Vernon had at the University of Miami.

The Dolphins were originally scheduled to pick with the 145th pick in the round. They traded back with Tennessee to 155 overall and picked up a seventh-round selection No. 227 in the exchange.

Kaddu is 6-3 and 229 pounds.

"I feel like I'm a versatile player," Kaddu said, adding that he can cover receivers in the slot,feels like he can rush the passer, or hold the edge.

Kaddu has been told he needs to gain weight.

Kaddu said he molded his game and admired Ray Lewis growing up.
