Okung A Rookie That Could Be an Instant Starter for Hawks

Pro Football Weekly has an interesting article on rookie players that could make big impacts in their first season with their new teams. Number six on the list is Hawks first round pick Russell Okung:

6. OLT Russell Okung / Seahawks (1st round / Oklahoma State; 6th overall; OL grade: C-plus)

Skinny: Immediately anointed the replacement for retired nine-time Pro Bowler Walter Jones(notes), Okung has rare size, outstanding balance, long arms and a 24/7 commitment to football that immediately impressed new Seahawks O-line coach/zone-blocking guru Alex Gibbs. Okung gets valuable guidance on the field from veteran newcomer Ben Hamilton(notes) at left guard.
