"Why did we take Odrick with our first round pick, Momaw Nadon? Couldn't we have taken Jerry Hughes there and still gotten Odrick with the 40th pick?"
"Beats the shit outta me, Dude. But I hear ya." [pew!-pew!]
So here are some nuggets of information to make us feel awright:
Mike Mayock likes him. And that might be enough for me: "He's got a great motor, heavy hands,'' Mayock said. ``He's a guy that will start out as a rotational player with Kendall Langford, Randy Starks and Phillip Merling, but ultimately will be a starter for Miami"
Jon Gruden likes him too. But Jon Gruden fucking loves everybody, so this quote means nothing to me: "This guy is relentless, plays on an every-down basis, rarely gets tired. He's a perfect Bill Parcells-type player.''
Pro Football Weekly also has good things to say: "excellent body length to disrupt passing lanes. Outstanding athlete for a big man. Secure tackler. Outstanding work ethic. Tough and will play through injuries."
The knocks on Odrick seem to float between he can get thrown down too easy and plays too high. I guess that means he really isn't targeted as a DT, but more of a DE. But his versatility will allow the Fins to play mix and match with him when Mike Nolan goes all Matrixy with our defensive schemes. Odrick was ranked as the 3rd or 4th best DT prospect on most draft boards I've seen, so there's that. Whatever. As long as he reaches into Mark Sanchez's ass and turns him into a hand puppet on a regular basis and makes the puppet say things like "Ay chiwawa!," I'll be happy.
Overall, a good pick.
