04/28/13 - A closer look at the Cardinals' picks: Round 4/103 - Alex Okafor, DE/OLB, 6-4, 261, Texas...Two years ago, the Cardinals took Texas outside linebacker Acho in the same spot: fourth round, 103rd overall. Acho became a starter as a rookie, so that worked out well. Okafor could fill a need. The team needs to improve its outside pass rush and its depth at defensive end. Okafor was productive in college, recording 12.5 sacks last season. - The Sports Xchange
04/25/13 - ROB RANG'S FINAL 2013 NFL DRAFT BIG BOARD: 44. Alex Okafor, DE, Texas: Due to his time inside at defensive tackle, Okafor uses his hands very well and proved a better than advertised overall athlete at his March 26 Pro Day. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
04/24/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT RANG'S GANG: DE: Alex Okafor, Texas, 6-5, 264, 4.92...A buddy of mine who coaches basketball complains often about the lack of fundamentals in today's players. Everyone wants to dunk but few can shoot free throws with any regularity. Perhaps due to the fact that Okafor played defensive tackle as a sophomore, he's developed impressive hand technique, a trait I don't often see in collegiate pass rushers. His lack of top-notch athleticism could push him into the second round, but he's more pro-ready than many of the defensive ends who'll be selected ahead of him. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
