With the 155th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Miami Dolphins selected Oregon line backer, Josh Kaddu.
We needed some depth at linbacker. But we still need a wide receiver.
Continue reading for his upside and downside.
-Explosive hip snap through contact
-Good playing range and backside pursuit
-Lacks bulk and point-of-attack strength
-Can be run at
-Not alert in coverage---untrained eyes
-Too often loses positioning in coverage
Of Kaddu, Walter Football says:
4/25/12: Kaddu did not have big production as a senior against the run, making a total of only 50 tackles. However, he made big plays behind the line of scrimmage with 9.5 tackles for a loss and 6.5 sacks. Kaddu is a quality blitzer. As a junior, he totaled 32 tackles with 6.5 tackles for a loss and 2.5 sacks.
Kaddu was one of the better linebackers at the East-West Shrine along with Shawn Louiseau, Tank Carder and Jerry Franklin. He was active and showed good quickness. Kaddu didn't run at the Combine, but he was decent in the other tests.
