Put Coach Dante to work on this kid, and who knows what he might become.
For those who didn't Click on the Link I provided, or who don't know:
1 ~ The 438 Short Shuttle would've been #1 at The Combine.
2 ~ The 35" Vertical would've also been #1.
3 ~ The 125" Broad would've also been #1...by 9 Inches!!
4 ~ His 478 Forty would've been #3.
He's got a 35" WingSpan.
Don't have his 3 Cone Time.
He's listed as a Defensive End ~ which wouldn't break my heart, mind you ~ but he's obviously a Clean Slate ~ a Champion Discuss Lobber, for those who don't know'f'm ~ and I'd prefer to develop'm as an Offensive Tackle.
But, hey: I'm Easy.
I'm interested as long as he isn't related to Amobi Okoye.
I'd want to try him at 3-tech first. He's got the explosion to be exceptional there, and I think he'd be able to play there sooner than on offense. A messed up play on the offensive line gets Brady killed. A messed up play on the defensive line means either no pressure from him or a long run thanks to a blown gap.
Honestly, I don't think there's any stopping this kid. Just viewed the Interview. This kid oozes quiet Intensity & Determination, and specifically mentioned that he's prepared to churn away on the Practice Squad.
With Sebastian The Cruel & Nate Universal Solder locked and loaded, the 2nd Round is too pricey to invest in Offensive Tackle at this point, otherwise how cool would it be to bring in ~ arguably ~ the two most athletically gifted Offensive Tackles in the Draft ~ Menelik Watson being the other ~ with both being British?? Blimey!!
"Nice Blocking on that Go, Mate! Wot, wot?"
"Thanks, Old Boy!!"
"Care for a spot of Tea & Crumpets after this Match, Old Horse?"
Huh.....We'll I would be intrigued. He reminds of when Blaine Sumner, DT, Colorado School of Mines was a 2011 Draft Prospect.
Well, he hasn't ... you know, played the game. Still ...
Former Rugby Union player (like the Aussie TE for the Jets) and utterly freakish numbers for the combine, personally I'd have him at DT and give him 1 job - get into the backfield and hit whoever has the ball there as hard as he can.
It reminds me of Brock Lesnars foray into NFL a few years ago.
It's one thing being a freakish athlete, but another to make an impact in the NFL having never played a snap in your life. Still, I suppose the ingredients are there to make him an interesting prospect and nothing ventured, nothing gained etc....
