What I've seen of Okam has impressed me. The dude can move for such a heavy guy. I didn't see anything to get disappointed in.

McLain was talking about Marquey Love from U of H in a couple of his videos. He said he was impressed with his speed (not that that means anything). I didn't even know we brought him in for camp. It looks like he's slimmed down from his college days.

I highly doubt he makes the team, but it'd be a good story if he did.

You can hear coach Franklin screamin' in the background. "Been DOING this too damn long!!"

At Frank Okam, Coach Franklin screams, "C'MON ELEPHANT!!! LET'S GO!!!"

Gotta love Coach Franklin.

Mario Williams, DE, Houston Texans. At times this spring, Williams has looked unblockable. “If you watch practice right now, you see him at another level,” coach Gary Kubiak says. “Football is very important to Mario, and he’s working his way toward a big, big year.” Those words should grab the attention of Houston’s opponents, especially because Williams had 14 sacks in 2007.

I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing

does that mean our OL stinks (bad thing)
or
that Mario is just very focused (good thing)

Considering Mario is what 6-7, 295 and is as quick and powerful as any DE out there.... I would say its more him than anything. I am thinking there arent going to be very many if any Tackles out there who are going to be able to handle this beast who is about to truly breakout this year and become something very special.

I'd have to say a majority of it is because MW has been more focused and is concentrating on work.

Having said that, I think Duane Brown being a rook would enhance MW's production a tad bit. BUT, at the same time, MW ripping Duane a new one every now and then would only help Brown's transition to the NFL.

Take it for what it is, but Antwan Peek looked awesome in camp against our OL two seasons ago as well, and Peek had a disappointing season.

We won't know until they line up against fresh bodies.

Kubiak coached Peek in his first season and never really had anything close to say good about him as he has with Mario.
