DT - Frank Okam - Texas

Height: 6'4" 1/2
Weight: 347 lbs.
40-Yard Dash: 5.29

Strengths:
Has outstanding size and a huge frame...Very strong and powerful...A pretty good athlete for a guy with his dimensions..Has shown the ability to take on blocks and split the double team...Good run defender...A decent bull rusher...Good range and mobility...Really smart...Schematically versatile...Solid production...Still has upside.

Weaknesses:
Needs to play with better leverage...Doesn't have a great motor...Isn't much of a pass rusher...Lacks quickness and a burst...Is not stout at the point...Stamina has been an issue...Instincts are questionable...Plays undisciplined...Is on the ground too much...Extremely inconsistent and does not always play up to his talent level.

Notes:
A member of the UT Athletics Director's Honor Roll...Possible 3-4 nose tackle...Hails from the same college program that has produced guys like Casey Hampton, Cory Redding, Shaun Rogers and Marcus Tubbs in recent years...Has all of the physical tools you look for but he may lack the intangibles necessary to be great...A classic underachiever who could excel if motivated but is just as likely to be a major bust.

Thanks bro. Figured it would nice to take a look at some of the guys that may be drafted in the later rounds. We have all seen and heard about Albert, Otah, Williams, etc. but what about that 4th round WR that we select. I would like to at least be familiar with some of them.

CB - Justin King - Penn St.

Height: 5'10" 7/8
Weight: 192 lbs.
40-Yard Dash: 4.31

Strengths:
Smooth athlete...Good size and bulk...Outstanding speed with a burst...Fluid and flips his hips well...Quick and agile with excellent feet...Excellent hands...A reliable tackler...Has a lot of experience against elite competition...Very smart and a hard worker....Versatile and can also contribute as a return man...Has a ton of upside.

Weaknesses:
Not very strong or physical...Struggles with big wideouts...Raw and needs a lot of work when it comes to technique..Has a long memory...Sub par ball skills and isn't much of a playmaker...Questionable awareness and instincts...Underachiever who does not play to his measurables...Might lack a fire in his belly...Workout Warrior?

Notes:
Stepfather, Terry Smith, was a wide receiver at Penn State from 1988-91...One of the nation's premier recruits coming out of high school...Three-year starter in the Big Ten...Was able to graduate from college in just 35 months..Also saw extensive action at wide receiver early in his career...A finesse corner with all of the physical tools you look for but something seems to be missing...An enigma who could be a stud if the light ever comes on but he will need a lot of coaching..."Boom or Bust".

40-Yard Dash: 4.57

Strengths:
Excellent athleticism and agility...Very good timed speed and quickness...Explosive with a burst to close...Terrific range and does a nice job in pursuit...Good strength and decent power...Reliable tackler...Offers some versatility...Was real productive.

Weaknesses:
Extremely inconsistent and lacks a great motor...Undersized and doesn't have the ideal bulk that you look for..Isn't stout at the point...Marginal instincts, awareness and recognition...Limited pass rush repertoire...Too aggressive at times...Slow off the line...Has trouble shedding blocks...Poor technique..A questionable work ethic.

Notes:
Played some outside linebacker as a senior and that may be his home at the next level...Auburn's all-time sack leader...A better pro prospect than Reggie Torbor or Stanley McClover were...Is more of an athlete than a football player and could get overdrafted...His best fit might come in a 3-4 scheme..A classic "Workout Warrior".

Notes:
Name is pronounced "ca-LAY-is"...Has three brothers who also played football and one, Jared, is currently a Hurricane...One of the top two-way ends in the '08 Draft and could project to either a 4-3 or a 3-4 scheme..Looked like a future Top 10 pick at one point but had a sub par junior campaign and saw his stock drop...Has rare size and is an intriguing prospect but is a tad overrated...A boom or bust type but could be a steal if he can revert to his '06 form...A very poor-man's Mario Williams.

Agreed on that one. Half the time I never know who the Steelers take after the third round or so.

Kiper now has the Steelers taking Malcom Kelly. :roll: I have also come to the assumption that Albers won't be there at 23. He won't fall past picks 14-16, as all those teams are in OL help.
