    I don't know about drafting another injured player, especially in the first round.

    I think his injury concerns are maybe a little overblown. I think he has been fine in workouts and Dr. Andrews says his knee is fine.

    in 2012 he looked like a prototype nfl left tackle top 10 pick...this year he looked like he gained bad weight and developed some bad habits...i like the player...i like it more at right tackle or guard but i swear this was top 10 worthy pick left tackle talent a year ago

    fell off seriously in 2013...i took him off my board cause i heard i guess bad info that for medical he wouldn't play for anyone in 2014...might have to take a medical redshirt...that seems to be a bunch of mularkey i guess...and so yeah i'm interested...would like to see him lose some of that what i think is bad body weight

    pick #19 though ehhh a little rich...top 40 more my blood off what i have seen of late...some sluggish tape this last season...but i cant help but think that athlete i saw in 2012 is in there still somewhere

    Very doubtful. He is expected to go late 1st or early 2nd. I don't see any VG options at #50 on the OL.

    Perhaps they are looking at trading down with Cleveland or San Francisco at the end of the 1st round.

    Also possible the Dolphins are using Abramson to blow some smoke.

    Do you believe that there will be a starting caliber RT available, for this year, at #50? I do not.

    Abramson goes on to really detail plans for almost every round and what positions they are targeting. I am thinking this a smoke being fed to him, they want this out there.

    Just about everything I read in that article made me cringe, except for Misi moving inside. Scary stuff.

    Lol. So you're believing this report as though it's gospel? C'mon, no team tips off any interest like this to the media.

    About thirty minutes ago,Pat Kirwin on Movin' the Chains mock draft had the Dolphins trading down with the Chargers and taking Kouandjio.

    ed stinson...a 287 lb de...i sure hope not...do like that kouanjo is down to 311...i bet those feet and movement skills are more apparent...wheeler at solb dear god shoot me now he's horrible clean now you want him to also be stout at the poa...good lord

    this has got to be bs...got to be...cooks isn't sniffing the 2nd round let alone 50 benjamin i think could slide but i don't want him in our offense...doesnt play smart enough or id coverage well enough

    i call bs on a lot of this...

    if they did move misi inside then the solb i'd look for to replace him in the draft would be kyle van noy...then it makes a lot of sense to me...i don't think they are moving misi cause they wont be able to hide him in coverage on obvious passing downs with 2 lb sets so if teams go quick on us we couldnt sub him out but if they do move him then yeah kyle van noy...

    but not at #19...

    It just about has to be a smoke screen. I mean what team in their right mind is going to let anything leak out about who they like?

    C. J. Mosley is probably the consensus pick right now.....but that may not mean much.

    I would take Van Noy at 50. That dude is a straight up beast and will be so effective in 3rd down packages his rookie season.

    Kouandijo fits a ZBS about as well as he fits into a smart car.

    that's more my speed...where i think his value is...effective on 3rd down getting after the qb...but i'm not taking him to play wolb and not if misi is gonna eat up all the first 2 downs solb snaps...

    misi would have to move for me to take van noy...

    Abramson spends to much time trying to come up with headlines that stir the pot for me to take him serious as a joinralist, it also seems highly unlikely anyone with information would talk to him.

    remember earlier barry jackson said that they liked having misi on the field on first down cause he provides some poa strength...much needed in fact...that says solb stick and stay all day long to me...his best fit anyways...look for a more instinctual true lb to play the mike at least a 2 down guy if you can't get an every down one

    what i would do...stick with misi at strong and hide some of his weaknesses in coverage by giving him flats and drop zones...can do more of that at strong than mike

    Seems like too much of a reach at 19, maybe trade down or try in the second. I like him at RT but i would have to hope his decline from a top 10 talent is only a 1 year thing and that he can pick it up if we do pick him.

    if hickey really liked this guy as a possible selection for us at #19, i can guarantee you that information would have never leaked out of the building. this is probably a ploy to improve the odds of moses (or someone else hickey likes) still being there in round 2. just the fact that it is a leak about the O-line at all pretty much convinces me we are going in a different direction (LB, TE, or secondary) in round 1. just using the fact that everyone knows we need O-lineman to misdirect on the player and the position.

    All these mock drafts saying Martin or Mosely, must be too close for comfort, so a smokescreen was needed.

    This is exactly why abramson is full of ****. What kind of journalist would release a report based on his "sources". And immediately after tweet this?

    “@AbramsonPBP: I have reason to believe Dolphins liking Kouandjio & planning to move Misi to MLB isn't a smokescreen. But you never really know until draft”

    If you don't trust your sources, why are you reporting it? What Florida considers acceptable sports journalism is easily then lowest standard in the country.

    Of all the OL that could get drafted in rounds 1 and 2 he is the one I want the least. Injuries and weight concerns scare me with this player. No way Hickey takes him at 19 IMO.

    player i see a lot of in kouanjo even after this season is keleche osemele for the ravens and a 2nd round pick...right tackle left guard who as a pro has been better kicked inside at guard...but may be moving back outside to right tackle with oher moving on depending on what the ravens do at tackle in the draft...

    similar players imo...
