Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

Certainly not a 1rst round pick, but could be interesting for the later rounds. He's been invited to the combine so his stock may go up.

6-8, 321lbs LT/RT Jared Veldheer Hillsdale - FalconsLIFE

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

I haven't heard much of anything saying Okung has limitations...more like the most talented/gifted LT in years.

Supposedly he's not as physically strong as Joe Thomas or Jake Long, but that can be fixed in the weight room. Plus he has a mean streak....gotta like that!

Re: Redskins pick 4th in the draft

I think there are some concerns about Okung's ability/desire to get down and dirty (which is odd for a lineman), that his run blocking is a bit suspect and he's much more of a finesse guy

That is odd. I've seen him drive guys to the ground and stay on top of them sometimes causing a little retaliation from the defensive player. And I've seen him knock guys 5 yards off the line of scrimmage. After the combine I imagine some guys will fall and some will rise though.

Here's Walter's report on Okung. I would gladly take my chances with him at #4.

Even if thats true, aren't we moving towards a more finesse style of run blocking?
