RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Amobi Okoye.
Much-traveled former first round pick will get a chance to compete for a rotation spot in the Cowboys' defensive line, provided he's recovered from the medical issues that cost him the 2012 season.
The Bears are suddenly very deep at the defensive tackle position, which allowed them to take a shot on the Texans' former bust. Though defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli may have something up his sleeve for the youngster.
Okoye had a bounce back season after his disappointing sophomore campaign in 2008 and enters 2010 as a starter at defensive tackle.
Okoye struggled with injuries in his second season and badly missed the marks set by his impressive rookie season. Okoye is shockingly just 22 years old heading into his third year and really should become more physically-imposing for each of the next couple years. Despite his high-ceiling and promising work so far, he shouldn't be a fantasy factor as an interior lineman.
Okoye had an impressive rookie campaign by totaling 5.5 sacks. The emergence of Mario Williams last season made life easier on Okoye and that should continue to be the case. The Texans also brought in Roosevelt Colvin to bolster their linebacker unit. Okoye should improve in 2008.
Okoye is expected to start at defensive tackle and brings a reputation as a pass rusher from the inside. He may have some IDP potential if DE Mario Williams plays up to his reputation.
