Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

No way would I want T.Williams at 4 or 14. Complete Right Tackle prospect, he has athleticism, but too many questions about him to lock down the left side. Phil Loadholt was a far superior LT at Oklahoma, and he can't handle the LT spot in Minnesota. Trent completely whiffed on the inside blitz that ruined Bradford's shoulder, and had several mediocre games last year. He was a dominating RT in his junior year, but struggled at LT as a senior.
There are questions about his level of commitment and focus that should draw concern. His freak combine has elevated him far more then his film justifies. Same with B.Campbell, don't buy the hype. Campbell and Williams in the 20s; ok, but no way in the top 10. Workout warriors without solid game film are huge risks.

I thought that this was a good write-up of Okung's strengths and weaknesses

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

and keep in mind Mayock may be judging on diff factors, upside, etc

I'm pretty sure he's got McCoy ahead of Suh as well

I've seen in some comments from Broncos fans that they'd expect us to pick Williams since he's more athletic whereas Okung is a bit more smooth and not as strong in the lower body

who knows

Suh also led his team in tackles. Not bad for a DT.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

If we still have the 4th pick by draft time, it would be a mistake to take anybody but Okooong. You can try to justify taking anybody else you want, but he's the closest to a sure thing we're going to get in this draft.

When I read further and he says he is not impressed with Okung as a pass blocker and then I look at twenty other eviews that place him as the best pass blocking lineman in the draft without question I have to say I'm not so sure this review helps us?
Seems odd to me too. Okung is easily the best OT in the draft IMO.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

The notion that the Redskins hyped up visits with guys like Berry and Bradford yet hid the fact we were meeting with Okungs is far-fetched

Okung's Advantages:

-Familiar with zone-blocking offense
-Can start at LT right away
-Consistent, reliable

Williams' Advantages

-Superior athlete
-Can play both LT and RT (something that really appeals to Shanahan)
-Potentially huge upside (but he seems to have the risk of being a bust)

Williams was considered a top prospect going into this draft but started to slip some as the Sooners struggled

At #4, I think we should go with Okung over Williams. I'd rather go for the sure thing.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

The only way We get Williams is if we swap 1st rd picks w/ Denver and throw in JC for Marshall. If we stay at 4 it's a lock we're taking Okung.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

I don't think we are trading picks anymore. They are gonna take Okung for sure to have a cornerstone piece of the O-Line, and then they are gonna trade players for more picks. Not sure which players, but thats my gut feeling. I like Williams, but Okung is too much of a beast to pass up.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

with having so few picks, we cant afford to miss with #4. We have to take Okung, he has got to be one of the safest picks in the draft.

Re: Mayock Thinks Redskins Could Pass on Okung...

Here's the plan:

Trade down, pick up an extra 1st rounder, send that to Denver for Marshall, and still pick up one of the top OL propsects.

Win.

I think I'd pass out from excitement if that happened haha. I think Mcnabb would too if in one day you told him you got him a good young guy to protect his blindside and one of the top 5 wrs in the league to throw the ball to to go along with the targets he already has.

100% agree...while I do like the upside AH presents, it is still a heavy burden financially for us. I don't think we'll be able to move him though...tough situation. 15 days till the draft! I for one and pretty suprised I haven't heard any rumblings about a JC trade...anybody here heard anything about it?

Hoping for a 3rd out of him...but I know that is optimistic on my end.

Incredible if this happens...would make me and many others extremely happy!


I'd even go back to the 2nd and perhaps get the OT from USC...I believe his name is Brown....hell i'd even take ducasse if we could get b marsh.
