Post Koa Misi to play Middle Linebacker?
The Miami Herald reports the Dolphins are toying with the idea of moving SLB Koa Misi to middle linebacker.
The Dolphins seem intent on getting MLB Dannell Ellerbe to one of the outside spots. Misi is an excellent run defender and can cover a little bit. At 6-foot-3 and 251 pounds, he definitely has the size to make the move. Despite earning less cash than Ellerbe and WLB Philip Wheeler, Misi is easily Miami's best 'backer.

That last line mentioned as Miami's "best" linebacker??? That isn't saying much is it?

He is not the Dolphins best backer lets stop that. Ellerbe is the best but he was out of position last year

this Ellerbe signing is blowing up in our face, as I thought it could when we signed a guy with such little experience to that kind of contract.

Assuming he's available in the 2nd, we need to draft Chris Borland ILB from Wisconsin........2013 Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year. He's considered a bit small and his combine was just OK, but this Kid is pure instinct and is always around the ball. In his last 3 seasons with the Badgers he averaged 9.4 tackles/game. He reminds me of somebody.............

Misi was rated the 14th best OLB in a 4-3. He graded very well against the run, but was mediocre in coverage.

If they decide to go with this plan then I hope it works.
