    Looks like both corners for Virginia Tech, Flowers and Harris, may be thinking about declaring. :icon_shrug:

    yeah I really want Flowers bad, I was touting Cromartie about this time a couple of years ago and we took him! But CB was a glaring need then, where safety is the more glaring need now...Not sure if he would convert, but he is a stud, and I think with the way he lays the wood to WR he would be another Rodney Harrison back there but with better cover skills!

    What are your thoughts about Frank Okam? He caught my eye last season, but didn't declare for the draft. I'd love to see him as a Charger. The future at nose tackle when Big Jamal finally hangs them up.

    Same here. What about Frank Okam?

    He is one big D-line Beast.

    Frank Okam has the measurables, 6'5" and 320 would be a very nice plug in the middle! However he had an down year which will hurt his draft stock this year! He also watching video dominated the past couple of years at the collegiate level however this year looks as if he has some footwork problems, and to be a dominant DT, in the NFL he will have to improve his footwork!
