Not a fan of this pick. Okam has a low motor from what I saw of him at UT. A very lazy player.

Hopefully he'll work out though! He's a Texan!!

Default Re: Frank Okam...

BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior after totaling 52/11/5. Junior-year numbers included 38 tackles.

POSITIVES: King-sized interior defensive lineman who may ultimately find a home at offensive guard. Powerful in his lower body, plays with good pad level, and tough to move off the point. Eats up a lot of space in the middle of the field, effectively uses his hands to protect himself, and bull-rushes opponents off the line.

NEGATIVES: Lumbers about the field. Displays marginal explosion and limited speed. Does not play with a sense of urgency. Straight-line defender who struggles to change direction.

ANALYSIS: Okam has the body type and physical skills to be a dominant defensive lineman, yet he lacks a defender.s mentality. An intelligent prospect who hopes to go to law school one day, his passive style of play could have some teams giving him a look on the offensive line.

PROJECTION: Late Fifth Round

DAMN YOU PENCIL NECK!

EDIT: DAMN HOW MANY OF YOU USED THE "Immovable object" description?!

Found this vid in the same place I found the one on Molden.

Okam


Looks like he is pretty good player even though he didn't play well last year. He's got size AND speed - nice.
