The Dolphins plan to move Koa Misi to inside linebacker might be quashed by Misi himself, a team source tells the Palm Beach Post.
The team had planned to move Misi to the middle and then move to Dannell Ellerbe from inside to weakside linebacker and Philip Wheeler from weakside to strongside.
But the source says Misi is not on board with the plan. Despite having a strong year as the teamís strongside linebacker, Misi told coaches he was concerned about the added responsibilities and mental aspect of playing inside.
ďItís too much for him,Ē the source said.
While the source gave no insight into Miamiís draft plans, if the Dolphins are not confident with Ellerbe in the middle, that could make it more likely they draft an inside linebacker like Alabamaís C.J. Mosley, or possibly look for a linebacker like Wisconisnís Chris Borland later in the draft.
Or maybe the team will convince Misi to move to the middle. But as of right now, it doesnít sound like thatís happening.
