He may just do that, seems he got family history. Wish all the best in his ambitions. Be nice to have a President of Nigeria, being educated at The the “University of Houston” since Nigeria one day is projected and is considered a major power ( projected to be possible superpower one day in a multi polar world) on the African continent with the most population

Patrick Paul the most interesting back story in the draft, and we had no idea.

Houston has always had a very strong connection to Nigeria and especially Lagos due to the energy/oil industry.

I have nothng but nice things to say about the Nigerian Americans I have met in Houston and I’m certain Patrick Paul will represent our University very well…

Don’t know if you follow the NFL, but there was a guy who played for the Giants a few years back, Mathias Kiwanuka. His Grandfather was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Uganda. He was executed by Idi Amin.

Interesting Saban analysis. He basically said that Patrick is good with possibility of being great…Keep in mind that he was picked in the second round. It speaks greatly on how the previous “regime” did not fully develop him. Patrick has the tools to be a HOF. I can’t wait to see how he develops with the Dolphins.

Yep. In my line of work, some of the smartest and most accomplished people I have met are Africans, especially Nigerians, Ghanians and Cameroonians.

For guys like Patrick Paul, who didn’t develop to his full potential in his 4 yrs here at UH, I always wonder…was it the OL Coach’s fault or CDH?

Keep in mind that Paul had 2 OL coaches (Brandon Jones & Naghavi) while he was here.

One player drafted from UH. That tells us what a poor job the previous coach did.

The damage that CDH did…

Looks like a mix between Darth Vader and a Stormtrooper. I think there was a guy on the Giants a few years ago that also had a Star Wars helmet

Hard to “develop” when you only get 20 hours a week
