Dolphins Take LB Kaddu In Fifth Round

Posted Apr 28, 2012

After staying put on Thursday and Friday, the Miami Dolphins became active on the trade front in the draft today for the second time, moving out of the 145th overall pick in the fifth round to move down 10 spots.

With that 155th overall pick, Miami selected linebacker Josh Kaddu out of Oregon, gaining an extra seventh-round pick (227th overall) in the process from the Tennessee Titans.

“I feel truly blessed and I’m just glad to be going out there and playing for the Dolphins and putting on that awesome uniform,” said Kaddu, who had 108 career tackles (68 solo) and 10 sacks for the Ducks. “I feel like I’m a versatile player who can come in and compete and work hard. I can rush the passer if the team needs be, drop back in coverage, play man-to-man in the slot, running back or tight end, whatever they need me to do.”
