In Miami's search for a nose tackle, keep an eye on East Carolina's 328-pound Linval Joseph, a potential third-rounder who was summoned to Dolphins headquarters last week. Tennessee's Dan Williams, who hasn't visited the Dolphins, remains an option at No. 12.

Great! i think he can become a solid nose tackle if we take him. He's strong as an ox and pretty fast.

Guy had his personal " Man Crush " fan base on here.

That's pretty cool. He was my pick for "Don't Sleep On..." when we did our roundtable discussing every position for the Sun Sentinel a month ago.

61. NT Linval Joseph 6'6"323lbs.
Overview 1 kick blocked in 2009. 2 kicks blocked in 2008. Mammoth DT who likely won't start as a rookie but should see plenty of action in obvious run-down situations.
Huge. Great height. While not exactly and Adonis, he's also not just another TOG (Tub Of Goo) at 320+ pounds. Moves well for his size. Great run stuffer. Can generate a bit of a push as a pass rusher, too. A productive member of the best defensive line in Conference USA this season. Has a knack for blocking kicks. Has been used in "Refrigerator" Perry FB role.
Could stand to be in better condition. Has a ways to go as a pass rusher. Production came against a lower level of competition.
Now that the Draft is a three-day affair, Joesph will likely be a third day selection, so it's a bit surprising he declared. Nevertheless, he does have raw tools that, if developed, could make him a starter in the NFL some day.
