  • Frank Okam - 3-4 NT?

    Whats up guys? I am curious about your thoughts on Frank Okam. I really like this kid, and would like to draft him at #32 for the Fins and put him at the Nose in our 3-4 defense.

    What are your thoughts on Okam? Would he be a good pick at #32? And would he be good playing the 0Tech at the Nose in a 3-4 scheme?

    I think the main knock on Okam is motor, but he has great size to play anywhere on a 3-4 DL really. He's not your conventional stumpy NT but he has a strong enough build and he's wide enough to be a NT. I think he'd be better as a DE in a 3-4, where he could be a run plugger and make plays in pursuit, plus height is more of an advantage there. His value is right around the 32 range.

      I think, if you want to draft a NT, someone like Ahtyba Rubin is probably the guy that's valued closer to that spot. Some folks think Okam and Red Bryant will both fall to the 4th/5th range. Their size may blunt the fall, but Rubin's been rising rapidly. There's some speculation that Rubin is a first rounder, which I'm wary of right now, but he's probably in that 2nd round mix and is a NT prospect.

          I think Josh Thompson could be a steal at NT, he reminds me of Kelly Gregg.

            Okam blows, point blank. He plays with zero leverage, arguably the most vital trait of the NT position.

                He's listed as 6'3 on every site. That changes a lot of things as far as leverage for a 3-4.

                  Okam gets handled by college offensive linemen...imagine the linemen he'll face in the NFL. I'd pass on him

                    Okam needs to learn what leverage is and how to use it, untill then hes a project.His motor will probably be better once he starts to use leverage well.

                      Couldn't have said it better myself. Frank Okam is not even the best DT on the Texas d-line. I would take Derek Lokey over Okam in the NFL.

                        I wouldn't touch Okam on Day 1. Everytime I watch him he is not only undominant but I see him getting driven back. This guy has recieved a lot of hype based on having great measurables but if you watch him play he doesn't play at all like the 1st round pick people make him out to be. To me, he is a "Looks like Tarzan but plays like Jane" type prospect.

                          everything thats been said here is spot on, as a side note i think grady jackson has twice the motor okam has =D

                            Heh, that's pretty damning! Tell me about Red though. I don't live in Texas, so I didn't see the Aggies play at all this year. He's got great size. Is he also a low motor guy or does he just not move well?

                              Some scouts are calling for Okam and Bryant to make a Pro transition to OL.. Likely OG.

                              Neither possesses a nasty demeanor and they feel that their not playing up to the level of play their size would indicate.
