Okam, Amobi, and Mario looked impressive against tackling dummies. Although it's just tackling dummies, I think they looked quick and powerful.
I'm liking this Okam guy. I know it's just mini camp but he looks very quick for his size.

after seeing that clip i'm a bit excited about him. alot of people speak very highly of him that follow UT. Personally I expect him to flop BECAUSE he went to UT. So many of there players flop at the pro level. But he looked like a beast in that clip!

Realizing I'm comparing him mostly to DTs, Mario looked in a whole other league in that drill from the rest of the group.

That's the way it seemed to me also. He was a lot faster and hit it harder.

Okam is gonna have to play lower than that if he wants to use all that weight as leverage.

You could hear Franklin telling him he was running too high.

Okam looked pretty slow there. He had a hard time hitting the dummy with his hands, I thought.

I'd like Jethro to throw on an uniform and some pads. That man can hit!!

Bulman and that other UDFA (Long) looked pretty slow compared to Amobi and Okam. I thought Zgonina looked pretty slow as well.

Mario better bring that kind of stuff on gameday. He looks unreal.

Actually, Mario kinda made everyone else look slow.
Man if he punches like that on game day, somebody might get knocked the **** out


Wonder why N.D. wasn't doing the drill....?

Default Re: mario vs tackling dummies

Right after Coach Franklin told them to keep their elbows in tight and then extend, pushing the dummy to the side... Okam goes and does this limp wristed slapping thing that the coach just got finished telling them NOT to do.

Mario looked the best by far.... but Okoye looked pretty good in that drill, and I thought Tim Bulman looked good as well... though his footwork seemed off.

Okam.. athletically he looked good enough.. but his technique was very shoddy...imo anyway.

Course he is a rookie and I dont think anyone expects perfect, or even good, technique from a rookie.

Lets just hope he is coachable.


Oh.. and lets also keep in mind that this is a 30 second clip of a single drill against tackling dummies.... cant really make any kind of sound judgement about a player from that.

Seeing Coach Franklin show the proper way the drill is done and then watching the guys progressively loose the technique as they ran dow nthe line was interesting. Most started slapping at the dummies like Grid pointed out. Helps us lay people knowing how it supposed to work.

I was browsing the videos on the Texans site earlier and the video of Okam made me do a double take . I was very impressed ! It was definitely an attention getter . I hope he can turn out to be the sleeper that comes in and dominates !
