I would be really happy with the Oklahoma kid in the 2nd round.

Also think Dorance Armstrong is going to help himself this weekend.

I'll give you a freebie:

Okoronkwo is overrated by at least 2-3 rounds. He may be the worst edge player vs the run that I've seen this year. He's a very quick, very undersized edge guy. Great speed rusher, for sure. He's a less strong Pita Tamoepenu who played more in college, which is an important factor. I love Tamoepenu, but he went pick 202.

Final year of college, heading into draft:
Pita Tamoepenu: 41 tackles, 12 TFL, 9 sacks
Okoronkwo: 75 tackles, 17 tfl, 8 sacks

Tamoepenu played in a better conference and on a deeper defense, where they rotated edge guys more.

I think they are very similar style, size, athleticism players. Maybe Pita was undervalued a round or two and Oko overvalued a round or two.

If I remember correctly, most of us liked Pita a lot. He may have been undervalued.

I never saw Pita get washed 5-8 yds off the ball on a run play, though. I think Okoronkwo will either end up as an off-ball LEO or a 4-3 RDE who comes in on passing downs/nickel.
