    Nick...Amobi Okoye?

    What about this guy? If we're picking a DT first round, which I know is something you'd like us to do, is this a guy you'd want to have? I don't know much about him, gotta fill me in, I heard he's a beast though.

    He's someone I'd like to see us draft, but not where we're positioned right now. I envision him as a late first round guy, in the 20s perhaps. His stock has risen a lot, but would have to rise even further to get consideration where we're currently picking. He's nineteen and is already at 315 pounds and very strong against the run. Holds up exceptionally well on the line of scrimmage and can occupy double teams. He's more athletic than you'd guess he would be at that size. Obviously you're taking a risk with a first round DT but he's one of the few first round options I really like. Plus he's from the Big East.

    True, but I think he could still be a solid prospect, even though he is playing in such an inferior conference.

    He tested into the 9th grade at age 12 and signed with Louisville at age 16.

    Correct, 3 years removed from high school.

    Well if we draft him we count on at least being extremely intelligent.

    If any one wants to know how good he plays, change to fox and Lousville is playing against Wake Forest. I think he's #91 on louisville.

    He is #91 for Louisville and he looks good right now against Wake Forest.

    Okoye is an interesting prospect he is only 20 so he has a ton of room to develop and he has the size that the Rams need in the middle of the line. If he tests well he will be picked between 10 and 20 which would be alright for the Rams.
