Cardinals drafted Texas DE/OLB Alex Okafor with the No. 103 overall pick.
Okafor (6-foot-5, 264) played defensive tackle before converting to end for his junior and senior campaigns. He rallied for 22 career sacks, 40 tackles for loss, and eight forced fumbles. Okafor lacks flash -- he ran 4.89 at his Pro Day and offers little variety in his pass-rush moves -- but he was a finisher in the Big 12 and can win with strong hands and and length. Okafor isn't special in any area, but does everything pretty well. A value pick at the top of round four, Okafor will push for immediate snaps behind underwhelming Cardinals OLBs Sam Acho and O'Brien Schofield. Sat, Apr 27, 2013 12:25:00 PM
