    Offensive lineman Jeff Otah (left) holds off Kory Lichtensteiger during a drill at the NFL combine on Saturday.

    AP/MICHAEL CONROY
    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......


    from william penn hs in new castle del where my friend coaches wrestling...amazing Otah only played 3 varsity games!!!...loads of natural talent...his career really took of with the instruction he recieved at Pitt
    interesting point...delaware has only had 4 first rounders....3 have been left tackles...

    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 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....
