Don't get me started.

I know more about the acromioclavicular joint, the infraspinatus, supraspinatus, subscapularis, and teres minor muscles than any man should know.

personally I dont think Kubiak wants a big guy in that role, he prefers versatile D-lineman he can rotate and send pressure from different looks. I think either TJ or Mario can fill the runstuffer role when needed, we just dont have a clear cut "this is your job" guy. JMO

Right now there doesn't seem to be anyone worth signing that can handle a 2-gap assignment through FA. I don't see us drafting a DT considering the major holes in the secondary and runningback. And I also think they'd consider another DE before a DT. We might be posied with the TJ/Maddox, Okoye interior next season. I suppose it could be worse.

Welcome to the team Frank Okam!!!

Yep, welcome Frank Okam. I was wrong in my previous post, but I'm kinda glad. Okam has the potential to start over TJ. Great pick!

I like the Frank Okam pick. As a UT fan, I've been watching him play for awhile; and I can say he is exactly what he is: a very large man than can cause problems in the back field. We could have done worse.

I'm really excited about Frank Okam. We've done pretty good defensively against scat backs, and runners who try to get to the outside. Our problem has been the bruisers who run up the middle.

I think Okam will change that.

I'm probably most excited about this pick in the entire draft.

i gotta agree with ya. if we could find an edge rusher we could add him to Williams/Okoye/Okam in the future.

they could call the DT unit the OK Corral for OKoye and OKam

i love getting 1st Round type talent in the 5th Round...its nice

Frank "The Buffet" Okam. If they can motivate him, he could be the space eater that we have needed to stop the run up the middle. If it works out that way, look for DeMeco's sack numbers to go up along with the TFLs.
