Doesn't look like Amobi is the pick
He very well may be there when Miami is picking and his potential is much greater than, say, Levi Brown, the offensive tackle from Penn State that will also be available. But I just don't see Okoye as a Dolphins priority for several reasons.
First of all, Okoye is a smallish defensive tackle. He is perfect for a 4-3 system where he would be a young Warren Sapp-type addition. The problem is the Dolphins don't run a 4-3 system and their critical factors for that position call for more of a nose tackle type of player.
Secondly, I'm told the Dolphins talked to Okoye at the combine, but he didn't visit the team's facility and neither Randy Mueller nor Cam Cameron were present at his personal workouts. That tells me Okoye is on the radar, but he's not the target of Miami's focus.
Finally, it should be remembered that Atlanta picks at No. 8 now. The Falcons want to improve their pass rush. The Falcons are coached by Bobby Petrino. Who did Petrino coach at Louisville?
But it says here even if Petrino passes and Okoye is there, the Dolphins don't take him.
