Dan Kadar, Mocking the Draft
The SBNation staple Dan Kadar weighed in on his post-combine 2020 NFL Mock Draft where he made a pick for the Tennessee Titans that might take a lot of people by surprise: Julian Okwara EDGE, Notre Dame
"A leg injury limited Okwara to only doing the bench press at the combine, which is unfortunate. Several teams in this range are after a pass rusher, but Okwara might slide over concerns about his health. If he does, Tennessee could take a chance in the back for the first round and find a partner for Harold Landry."
Okwara is so interesting because if he doesn’t test at his Pro Day, then what do you even do with this guy.
He has only played more than 10 games in a season once in his four year career and he really hasn’t been very productive. On top of that, you have absolutely no idea what he is going to be athletically because he played at 250 lb. in college and didn’t test.
On tape he is fine, but I don’t think he is anywhere near a first round talent and at this point you are basically betting on bloodlines and hoping that you can get him to be a rotational player opposite Landry who can’t really rush the passer that well.
If the Titans are stuck with this it is going to be really hard to give it a good grade.
