    6'0" 311 lbs. Very strong at the point of attack... agile and can get penetration..... due to his height/weight combination he will win more than his fair share of leverage battles...... don't let the small school fool you... he is gonna be a problem for blockers.... tested very well at the combine compared to his big school counterparts... don't be surprised if he shoots up draft boards for teams that use a 3-4 defense..... look up his game film and you'll be pleasantly surprised...
    Btw... despite his size and weight, this is not a bowling ball...... he's mostly muscle

    So stuff I read have not seen this kid play also I am reading he is a special teams stud:

    The easy transition for him would be to remain a 4-3 outside linebacker but he could be used in a variety of ways in a 3-4 or nickel alignment. O’Daniel played behind one of the best defensive lines in the country which may have three first-round picks come next year. They kept him clean and no doubt helped him make his living in the backfield at times. Still, O’Daniels quickness, speed, and fluidity are among the best in the class and he should offer value as a pass rusher, run defender, in coverage, and on special teams.

    A player like O’Daniels gives defenses tremendous flexibility. What he is not is an outside linebacker in a 3-4. He does not have the size length or strength to play there. He also isn't a safety. But he does have the skills to cover tight ends slot opponents and the backfield. He has some technique issues to work out specifically in coverage but he should be able to hit the ground immediately for a 4-3 team.

    In today’s game, O’Daniel’s skill set is tailor-made to defend some of the offenses in the league. His versatility is coveted by teams and can be an asset in many schemes. O’Daniel is athletic as they come an will likely test impressively.

    His draft range falls to the early to middle rounds, but O’Daniel can very well vault himself to an early day two selection thanks to pre-draft workouts.

    Skai Moore would be interesting. Heavy production. 40 time hurt him a bit. Solid player.

    But I gotta go with one of my favorites:

    Levi Wallace, CB, Alabama

    My vote goes to Justin Watson, WR, Pennsylvania.

    Good redzone target, 6'3" 225 pounds. 81 passes for 1,083 yards and 14 touchdowns in 10 games.

    Lot of potential here, some 4th rd projections so good value in the 5th. Plus Steelers had him in for a private meet.

    I will also vote for Jeremy Reaves. I don't know much about him, but the Steelers are long over due for a saftey in this draft.

    Watson is a great talent here but I feel the group there is a good group of WR's still left on the board and we could grab one with our next pick however one of our biggest needs and a position that we are weak at is safety and I feel we can't afford to wait any longer. jmo. :smiley1:

    I see a lot of "reaching" for positional needs and lower draft grades happening .....

    Okorafor is a 2nd rd talent here in the 5th!!!! Hubbard is gone, Hawkins is injury prone and unproven. Okie is raw and the perfect fit for Munchak to mold into our next starter....Gilbert's replacement

    If we're going to go OL, I'd go with Tyrel Crosby, OT, Oregon. I don't see anywhere where Okorafor is rated a second round talent. The word I see to describe him is "soft".

    Did more reading. Although there are some valid criticisms of him, he is that raw person with potential you say. And to show that I agree with you, he honestly gets my vote as the highest rated person still on the board.

    Did Tre Flowers get drafted? This seems like a good spot for him.

    Trying to convince me. I was wrong. Went to one site. Made a comment. Looked more into it, decided you were right.

    Dude!!! Look at the time lines....

    Not interested in " convincing You"!!!!

    Asked you a question about your rebuttal with a statement of my own..... Then separately posted a draft profile for Everyone to see that I was using......

    This is still a fluid conversation about the next pick isn't it???

    I am guessing it is all about who's board your looking at, also not being invited to the combine has the avg person ranking him low.

    Reaves thrived against some of the biggest targets on the North roster, including Penn State tight end Mike Gesicki, as College Football Talk's Kevin McGuire noted.

    The South Alabama product has a wide range of abilities that he displayed on Saturday. He recorded over 100 tackles in his senior season and intercepted eight passes in his four years playing in the Sun Belt.

    Like most of the prospects going through the draft process, Reaves still has work left to do, but the Senior Bowl gave NFL teams a good example of what he's capable of
