You didn't tell me anything I didn't already know there Cak. I know they needed de. It gets stated because it is a fact even though it wasn't a need like de. If his old college coach had some insight that Okoye was something going to be special I think he may have lobbied for him. The first round is supposed to be bpa with common sense of course. I also know Atlanta drafted a bust de (Jamaal Anderson). And I'm also not saying Okoye is a bust yet either but rather making the point that he was not the closest to a sure thing as stated. And to pass on a much surer bet like Willis didn't make much since imho.
