With the 40th pick in the 2010 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins have selected Utah outside linebacker Koa Misi.

Misi was a defensive end at Utah but will transition to linebacker in Miami's defense. Note that Mike Mayock does believe Misi could transition to inside linebacker as well as outside linebacker in this defense. More versatility for the Dolphins.

Misi measures in at just under 6'3 and right around 250 pounds. He ran a 4.75 40 at his Pro Day. His 1.64 10-yard split is also worth noting. It's just .03 slower than Brandon Graham, who many say was the most explosive pass-rusher in this draft.

Solid pick. I like it.

Below is Koa Misi's scouting report from DraftCountdown.com:

Strengths:
Outstanding motor and gives excellent effort --- Very athletic --- Quick and agile with great balance --- Super explosive with a burst --- Terrific strength --- Uses his hands well --- Comfortable in space --- Appears to have fluid hips --- A hard worker --- Versatile --- Still has a lot of upside.

Weaknesses:
Just average size --- Questionable instincts --- Has trouble getting off blocks --- Not a great run defender --- Inconsistent --- Minor durability concerns --- Mediocre sack production --- May not have a  true position.

Discuss the pick below.

And one other note, Tom Kowalski of MLive.com has tweeted that the Cliff Avril trade rumor is "absolutely not true." So let's hold off on that rumor for now and see what happens tonight/tomorrow.
