Okung is more of a guy that will be entrenched in a small area at LT to shut down the guys in front of. Not a bad thing at all but, Williams,on the other hand, is a lot more mobile and fits to scheme perfectly.
[View Full Quote]I didnt like the Eagles pick at all. They probably only had to move up to around 15-18 to get either Graham or Morgan. Instead they moved up to 13 and gave up an extra 3rd rounder. Secondly, having Graham and Trent Cole on the same line is really going to hurt their ability to stop the run. I can see a lot of teams running against the Eagles because of their undersized DE's and mediocre DT's. Plus the fact that they passed on Earl Thomas when they are in dire need of secondary help is pretty amazing to me. Now I just hope they draft Taylor Mays with their 2nd round so I can see Dez Bryant burn him for years to come.
I totally disagree with picking for the system, at least early in the draft and when there's a substantial difference in talent (which I think there is).
If you ran the Tampa 2 would you pass on Deion Sanders because he didn't fit the prototype or would you take the talent and find a way to make the potential work?
