Louisville's Pro Day - Okoye continues to impress

Amobi Okoye continued his impressive off-season with an exceptional performance at Louisville's Pro Day. Okoye, at 305 pounds, ran a 4.85 40 yard dash. This was a nice improvement over his disappointing 5.07 40 time at the combine due in part to a sore hamstring. He could be a top ten pick in April's draft and has passed Alan Branch on many draft boards as the top defensive tackle in the draft.

Amobi Okoye he is a rare athlete and there is the fact that he is just 19 years old. the potential he has is only overtaken in the draft by Calvin Johnson. He has it all size, speed and the intelect to become a great DT for the next 10 years or more becasue of his age.

He is the best 4-3 DT in the draft but if a team need a 3-4 DT then Alan Branch is a much better pick. So there is no garente that he will be the first DT taken or the first DL taken becasue there is Gaines Adams who has lived up to all of the hype. but he is still a top fifteen all the way maybe top ten he probably should be. There is only one thing that I do not like since he is so mature allready there is the posibility that he had allready peaked and that would not be a good thing.

Just have to remember that like only one in three DL end up turning out to be good so the question is witch one will it be. It's just about the second hardest position to predict after QB.
