I think the kid has great potential.

However, I don't think he will end up in DC.

Making excuses under the guise of wanting to win it every year just shows desparation and not pre-meditated strategy.

I rather follow a plan than just to take random roulette shots every year.

By the way, love my Skins!
That's right. The front office operated bad in the recent years, it would seem that we would win every year, but the only thing we won was the dumb free agent race. Strategy and consciousness is all we need for the future.

If we were to pick a D-lineman, this is who I would want.

At 19 he can only get bigger, stronger, faster, and better.

He still has tremendous upside of becoming even more physically dominating as he is only 22. The only knock on okoye is that he is a DT and its not really a game changing position, though it is vital. What we need from a DT, is to just be an anchor in the middle of the field that will take on doubles and let our other playmakers get some breathing room to operate. Okoye is not this kind of player yet and may never develop into this mold. However, Okoye is still the highest reward lowest risk D-lineman in the draft. I wouldn't be opposed to drafting him but i still think we should get more picks if possible
DT is not a game changing position??? That is just plain false. I would argue that a dominant DT is the the most sought after position other than quaterback. There are very few players in the NFL that can penatrate the middle of the the offensive line to stuff and run and rush the passer. This kid has that rare ability. He reminds me a lot of the Warren Sapp. Who buy the way was the most important piece in the Tampa 2 defense.
