Wow.... big jump for Aaron Donald. He seems to be getting a lot of love lately. He definitely had a good combine, & his college production is pretty sweet. But it's highly unlikely he'll be the next John Randle.

I think if everything goes right, & that includes being in the right system, he's the next Antonio Smith. It is more than likely he'll be a faceless DT who doesn't get the credit he deserves like all the good DTs in the NFL, unless they stomp on someone's head after their helmet comes off.

What I liked about Aaron Donald is that he dominated the Senior Bowl practices.

In that, as well as his size, Donald reminds of Amobi Okoye.

I would be good with trading down and picking Donald to pair with Watt. I would still want to pick up a pass rusher in FA or the draft.

Donald is gonna be good in the NFL, but I don't believe he will ever be top 10 good.

I will just never get behind guys who jump 20+ spots after the combine. No matter how you look at it, this is what happened.

I think that may be where the similarity ends. I hated the Okoye pick as soon as it was rumored and may have been the most outspoken person on the board about it. I remember Okoye's situation well.

Okoye was an okay college player who had a good final season with 12 TFL and 8 sacks. That was pretty much the only production he had his whole career. He did help himself at the Senior Bowl and Combine just like Donald.

But Donald has the college production to back it up. The guy had 63 TFL, 28 sacks, and 6 FF in three years as a starter at DT. The guy dominated everyone that lined up across from him in games, that's not something that Okoye did. If Okoye had been older than 19 he would have been a second round pick, IMO.

I don't think Donald fits what the Texans will probably be on defense, but I do think he will be a very good pro.

Donald led the nation in Sacks per game 1.6 and Tackles for Loss 2.6, Okoye's production was a little better than average. Texans drafted Okoye because he was only 19 years old. POTENTIAL! POTENTIAL! POTENTIAL! Smubiak expected him to get BIGGER, stronger and faster. They didn't realize he was already a grown man and "what you see is what you got. For the Texans, that ceiling was SKY HIGH!
