Albert Okwuegbunam, TE, Missouri #81

6045, 260, 4.84


Notes: From Springfield, IL. Origin of his last name is Nigerian. Redshirted in 2016. Played a prominent role in the offense in his first season (2017), with 29 catches for 415 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Positives: Very good size. Large catch radius and go-to option for the quarterback. Fine athlete with good hands and maneuverability. Highly effective red zone target. Towers over smaller defensive backs at times and can be open even when covered. Has enough speed to stretch the defense down the seam. Gets open, natural pass-catcher and can run after the catch. Has the size to be an effective blocker.

Negatives: Underdeveloped in-line blocking skills at this point. Still very young and somewhat inexperienced.

Summary: Safe, solid, talented prospect who simply needs to develop as a blocker to be a very complete all-around tight end in the NFL.
