INDIANAPOLIS -- Looking back, Patricia Otah should have known her son was on to something.

She'd pick up Jeff Otah at the airport, and he'd say the silliest things. Once, Jeff asked her if she'd like to travel around the world. Another time, he asked for a new car. Patricia said she'd buy him one upon his college graduation, but she'd have to tap into her 401(k). Jeff would crack up.

"He said, 'Mom......

Teams are still all over him and he'll go in the first round though. If he can control that massive frame of his and use his leverage to his advantage he'll be a beast. He's in probably the best class of Tackles to enter the draft in a long time and somebody will pay him the big bucks but he does have his work cut out for him when you measure him up against his peers.

I would want Williams or Cherilus over Otah.......I would also take Carl Nicks or the Collins kid from Kansas over Otah.....

I agree....I was just naming OTs I want over Otah....I wouldn't mind Brandon Albert at 23 either if Williams and Cherilus are gone.....That would be the three OL that I want at 23.....This is of course with thinking Ryan Clady would be gone already....If Clady is there I would want him also....

But DL is an option also at 23......But just read on Steelers fever that the Steelers are going to pursue Justin Smith in free agency which would be sweet....There wasn't a link so thats why I didn't make a thread yet.......When I find a link then I will post it....

i wasn't endorsing the dude, i just thought it was cool he was from just up the highway...and interesting that I played more in HS than he did....it's not like he is going to end up here anyway....i like williams, gozder and hope one is available...
