    I like Okafor too, i dont see the burst i think to be a 10 sack a year guy but he's gonna be a good player, love Carradine's upside tho
    He looked like a men among boys on film, he already has an NFL body too. You rarely see that, especially with pass rushers.

    Yea he's rocked up, both of them are really. Carradine put up 28 reps at the combine and i believe Okafor had about 21.

    Nothing derailed the Courtney Upshaw train last year and nothing must derail the Tavon Austin train this year.

    Tavon Austin is a perfect fit for todays NFL, he's going to go in the top 20 sadly. Upshaw dropped because he's a throw back style edge defender, he would have been a perfect fit for a team like the 2000 Ravens, but he just wasn't athletic enough to go in the top 20 even if many of us projected him there. I still think Upshaw is going to be a very good player for us, just not an all pro pass rusher like Suggs is.

He is coming off an ACL injury, where as Okafor had a productive year and looked good at the senior bowl. Both have really good size, and its really hard to decide between the two.
    Love Okafor. I think he's actually pretty underated in terms of how far back most draftniks have him listed. The dude is a sure-fire pro.

    Settle down. John Harbaugh and Joe Flacco's Baltimore Ravens can beat any team, anywhere.

    I could see them moving back into the early 2nd to grab an extra 4th to use to move up again in the 2nd for Armstead. Be nice to get a safety with the first 2nd round pick then move up a few spots to grab Armstead.

    Troy Smith was throwing at Ohio State's pro day today. Word is he impressed a lot of NFL execs and could end up with a job.

    Considering his athleticism, I could see some team wanting to run the zone-read giving him a go.

    Re: All Things Draft:

    With Boldin likely on the way out, WR becomes a huge need--just as I have been saying it would be throughout this entire offseason.

    With all the depth and talent at WR in this class it's a good year to need a new wideout. DeAndre Hopkins is almost a lock to be the BPA if he's available at 32. Other names to watch in the 2nd and 3rd rounds are Markus Wheaton, Da'Rick Rogers, and Stedman Bailey.

    Yeah, I'd love Hopkins at 32, but would love Austin even more, but its unlikely Austin makes it past Chicago let alone New England.
