Okung solidifies himself as top 10 pick

Oklahoma State may have been dominated 41-14 by Texas on Saturday, but the Cowboys still had the best player on the field.

That would be senior left tackle Russell Okung. Against one of the best pass rushes in the nation, Okung was stellar. Neither Texas starting defensive end -- Sergio Kindle and Sam Acho -- registered a sack or a tackle for loss.

Okung showed every aspect of his game on Saturday. Against Ocho's deep outside pass rush, Okung effortlessly slid around the edge to seal off. When Kindle tried to bull rush, Okung sunk his hips, repositioned the end and neutralized him. On run plays Okung kept his legs moving finishing off his blocks.

Those are precisely the skills that make Okung clearly the best left tackle prospect in the 2010 NFL Draft.
