well, the front seven is going to be formidable for years to come. however, i don't know what to think about a 19-year old kid going up against 30 year-old men. okoye is all about the upside. i can't imagine he will be starting next season, but i expect that he'll get plenty of playing opportunity to help him build experience. i would've taken someone else, at any position, he could make an immediate impact. for example, i think upgrading the offensive line should've taken precedence in the first round. then, pick up any one of the several solid defensive tackles in the 2nd round who could contribute immediately.

either way, it's nice of y'all to get mario some help. a d-line (and o-line too) has to be a total package. you can't plug even a julius peppers into any line and expect him to be as dominate as he is now with the panthers.

If we were going best D player available, I would rather have had Willis myself. Move him or DeMeco to the outside.

I think Okoye can develope into a beast, but in most systems, a DTs role is pretty much to be nothing but a space eater. Spending a high pick on a DT seems kind of a reach if you go that way. Marcus Thomas or Mebane could fill that role with value.

I kind of wish we would switch back to the 3-4. To me, Mario and Okoye would both be great 3-4 DEs.

This was tough for me. I like him as a player, but as a team we had bigger needs. I voted no, but am still psyched to see this killer line.
