is now a Texan!
I like this pick too.
what's the skinney on him?
It was said on this board we needed a big DT ... we now have one .
Okoye and TJ are alot alike around 305-315 . Okam is about 340 .
i like it...
johnstone, robertson, trae williams, carl nicks, ali highsmith, blake, schuening are all still there. lets hope one of them is there next round
what's the skinney on him?
thats an oxymoron, there is no skinny on Okam!
He's BIG REAL BIG!
He's a POWER PIG!
Ain't NOTHING skinny on him.
Space eater DT to block up the middle and stuff the run.
I would like to take this opportunity to coin his nickname.
Frank "Bacardi" Okam
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!!
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
Well, he played for Texas, so I'm sure he will get most everyones approval on here.
very confused. after all the talk about the type of DT we like in this system being smaller and faster.
Big time run stuffer. Immovable object.
Not much against the pass though.
Curious to see if we try to convert him to a Offensive Linemen.
Ain't a damn thing skinny on this guy. He's going to be our "immovable object" on the defensive line. Or at least that's what I imagine the thinking is going into this pick.
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.
Looks like he is pretty good player even though he didn't play well last year. He's got size AND speed - nice.
wow 3 people used the same joke.
But in all reality, Frank Okam is this big!
Ah, you fell for the Smithiak Jedi Mind Tricks.
