@Real Cowboys LMAO @ Contras and you may be right...but because the Eagles are so hated remember they do not have a 2nd this year and to take more of this years draft and next years 2 away might just bury them for a while....
yo.. you do not do your research.. the draft rumor page isnt @#$@... our gm has talked about how safety is the hardest thing to find.. so why would we pass on jalen when we are going to spend a bunch of money on our front seven (second highest cap space).
It's nice to have a draft order set and the Senior Bowl behind us (other all-star games, too, I suppose). The combine is the other big event of the offseason, so we really are halfway to the draft. Sort of.
Summary: I noticed Okung last summer when watching tape on Brandon Pettigrew and I pegged him as a potential star in 2008. He has all the makings of a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle and has the upside to potentially warrant a No. 1 overall pick. If he can hone his technique slightly over the summer, I would be shocked to see him fall out of the first five picks next year barring injury. Okung has practically everything you look for in an offensive tackle. Last name pronounced OH-KOONG.
Player Comparison: Joe Thomas. Thomas and Okung have very similar frames with very good intangibles and the upside to dominate at the next level. Both had polished pass protection skills in college.
