Thread: Alex Okafor?

  1. #21
    After Ansah and Okafor, there is a pretty significant drop off in talent at the position. So if you don't like any of these guys, can we just assume you don't like any at all?

    This draft seems pretty deep at DE to me.

    I can understand not being in love with a guy like Sam Montgomery (he's over rated imo) but how do you look at Okafor or Ansah and say they're not eye popping?

    I dont agree. I look at a guy like Tank Carradine, who prior to his injury was rated ahead of Ansah by virtually everyone, and ahead of Okafor by some, and I think this kid could end up being the steal of the draft. He was having a monster year this year vs both the run and the pass.

    Only saw starting action as a senior and only then after the starting DE went down.

    So he played one season as a starter (great stats) and promptly blew out his knee.

    No way I use a first round flyer on this guy (projected as an early to mid 4th rounder currently).

    I'm not at all suggesting using a 1st rounder on him. Did you see the comment I was replying to? I was just not agreeing that there is sa huge talent dropoff after Ansah and Okafor. There are a lot of outside guys to like this year imho.

    Carradine ahead of Okafor? I find that highly unlikely...

    Nobody is saying he is a better prospect NOW, but prior to his injury Carradine was being talked about as 1st round talent in the same range as Okafor.

    What sources are these then? I've consistently seen him at best late second round, but usually in the third. And even those I take with a grain of salt.

    There is a thing called the internet, you can do searches and stuff on it, Check it out.

    I just did 1 for "Tank carradine 1st rounder" and the search came up with tons of sites that had him as a 1st rounder prior to his injury. Heck, even NYCsportfan mocked him to us as a 1st rounder in these very forums at one point. Here was the 1st listed article tho if you havent figured out how to use the internet:

    He led the nation in sacks and tackles for a loss at one point I beleive. You must not follow college football if you are surprised to hear that he was considered a 1st round talent prior to his injury.
