    Wow As I watched ESPN on the clock series the Dolphins Mel kiper chose that they will select 19 year old whattt a 19 year old Amobi Okoye DT of louisville. He started college @ 15 years of age dang I just started and this is my second semester and I am 19 years old. So I would like to know What do you guyz think about him

    I think he is a beast but he needs some seasoning. HE DEFINITELY has the potential to cause havock for an OL. He is one os those phenom players... Whoever gets him will have a DE for years to come.

    I would be pretty pleased if we got him, provided we aren't able to land Quinn. (Which is looking less and less likely). Okoye is probably my second choice. This kid is very young and dominant. Extremely fast. He's not huge, but he still has about 2 or 3 growing years left. I'd love to have him.

    Unreal isnt it. I think when I was 19....I was all about getting girls and partying... This kid is going to be a possible top 15 pick in the NFL draft... I think he will be doing great things in the NFL... Mark my words.

    he is really good and he went to HARVARD for a few years then transfered to louisville for football and is really good and yes is old 19 years old with a college degree. i dont think we should take him though cuz have more pressing need and can find a decent DT in the later rounds that are almost as good as him

    great pass rusher considering that he's a DT and he can stop the run as well, he can be a dominate Warren Sapp type DT. with that said I think with the two Wright's we have at DT along with Evans and Traylor that we don't go DT. maybe if we project him as a 3-4 DE

    The kid will be a force for years to come, he is a pretty amazing story if you read about him.

    That being said, get me Quinn.

    True. I think if our offense was somewhat set better than it is now. You could see him in a Fins uni....

    I was real impressed with what I read about him. Blew me away actually. Very smart young man.


    Chances are....we may not even get him. But then again, stranger things have happened. With all the smokescreens here lately....it is hard as hell to tell...

    Dude, what!? 6'2'' 302lbs. ???Yeah I guess he could put on a few pounds !

    With our strength at LB and weakness at DB I think DT is a luxury, though.

    LOL....You just compared Ginn to Bush. There is no comparison. Ginn is an overrated WR that can't run routes and is hurt to easy and can't recover fast eough. See his latest work out for the scouts. He kept falling due to his ankle sprain...yes rain was a factor but they are blaming his ankle. If they take him...I would be totally upset.

    yeah i think he is going to be a great player in a few years and i rather have him instead of levi brown and wouldnt mind if hes there at 9 to pick him. I also think he is going to be a beast in a few years

    so what are our options at #9? there doesn't seem to be a good player at a need position around #9. Quinn will be gone, Levi Brown might be the best choice. he's the only player at #9 who would help our offense, we might have to go defense

    That would be the question of the day. L. Brown...Maybe Landry or even Okoye. I really have lost track on who the possibilities are. So many smokescreen and trade scenarios out there...

    Where did you get that info from? He moved to Alabama when he was 12 and tested into the 9th grade. Started football in the 10th grade (so 13 years old), graduated when he was 15 and signed with Louisville and played all 4 years with them, putting him at 19 years old today, so when in that time period did he attend HARVARD?

    Okoye is a DT, so unless he is moving to DE in the NFL he can't take Taylor's place when he retires.

    :lol:

    Let's just call him a graduate of Harvard law, and he was able to complete the course in one summer.

    So now he is a 19 year old NFL defensive tackle who has a psychology degree from Louisville and a law degree from Harvard. And this may just be a smokescreen, but I heard he knows the cure for cancer too :wink:

    I apologize, I didn't see that one. I wasn't trying to be sarcastic or anything in my post about him being a DT not a DE anyway, I didn't mean for it to come out like that if it did, I was just pointing out that Okoye wouldn't help fill a need when JT retires because they are different positions. But IDK, this kid is some sort of freak (only been playing football for 6 years and already a top 15 NFL pick, etc) so I wouldn't doubt he could be an Adalius Thomas-esq player.
