NFL Draft: Thoughts and observations
Okung went No. 6 overall to Seattle and he will get the chance to play with the Seahawks in a NFC West division which is WIDE OPEN. With a veteran quarterback Matt Hasselback needing someone to protect his blindside, Okung could be a key to Seattle’s success in 2010. Most draft analysts had Okung as the draft’s most NFL ready tackle and expect Russell to prove it and start from day one in Seattle and become a core member of the organization for the next decade.
Bryant went No. 24 overall to Dallas. For Dez, it’s the dream scenario as he goes to the team he had dreamed of playing for. I’ve said all along Dez would need a great situation, with a veteran receiver who could serve as a mentor. And I’m not sure Dallas is that team. Miles Austin is the Cowboys No. 1 receiver, Roy Williams is the other starter and Patrick Crayton is their No. 3 receiver. I’m not sure I see a veteran mentor in that group. Crayton would be the guy I’d put my money on. And receivers coach Ray Sherman could also be a good mentor.
