Yeah, like Justin Smith has any pass rush moves.

All Tomsula needs to get out of this guy is proper technique, angles and to use his God-given abilities to seal edges, occupy two on stunts and bull rush and collapse the pocket. He'll also needs to recognize a screen pass and fire off the LOS and learn to shed blocks in the open field.

Now if he was a WR, CB, C, S, etc. I'd say Okoye has no shot but with his measurables, intangibles and Tomsula working with him for an entire year, I actually have some expectations for him. It will be fun to watch. I hope he genuinely gets a shot in PS.

Me too. I hope he's progressed from last pre-season. When he did play, the opposing offense got stalled, but we're talking the last 11 minutes of the game. So I'm hoping to see in the 2nd QTR instead of the last 11 minutes of the game, this next pre-season.

I love this story and am really rooting for Okoye.

Why are you sick of this guy? Barely heard any news of the guy for awhile, I hope we strike gold and Tomsula turns him into a beast.
So, when exactly is this guy going to be either "epic" or "awesome"?

Unknown potential is much easier to defend and talk up than guys who have been around for a while and can be nitpicked. These are guys in the Taylor Mays fan club circa 2010.

More like HOW are you sick of this guy? He's not doing commercials or post game interviews. He's not on T-shirts or cereal boxes. In fact, he's not even on the field. This thread is a year old and only has 80 pages. Be sick of something else, cuz dude is just trying to get a roster spot.

Martin vs Okoye in camp
Not quite sure why people have to keep saying they dont expect much when it's been previously state 281 times in this thread.

Is there really a need for 282?

Only we dont have the time or patience of a good 4 years to teach a noob the technique needed for the tackle position.
