Notes:
Was a unanimous First Team All-Conference USA performer in 2006...Recorded a career-high 58 tackles with eight sacks and 15 TFLs in his final year at Louisville...Still just 19 years old, Okoye played as a true freshman at the age of 16...Widely regarded as one of the premier defensive players in the nation...Is a bit short for the defensive tackle position and has shed a great deal of excess weight...Tremendously strong, quick and instinctive...Is a great natural athlete who has unlimited potential...Has long arms and has learned to play with technique rather than just natural reactions...Has proven capable offighting through double teams...Gets off the line quickly and runs at full speed until the whistle blows...Certainly needs to add some more quality weight to hold his ground at the line of scrimmage...Will likely be gone in the first 15 picks.
