Scouting Report: Albert Okwuegbunam
School: Missouri Position: Tight End Class: Junior Height: 6-5 Weight: 265 Projected Draft Round: 1-2
Big play tight end that has found the ability to get huge yards after the catch in the open field during his redshirt Sophomore season. Catches the ball away from his body with excellent touch. Big catch radius. Height, weight, speed are all ideal as a pass catching tight end in today’s NFL. Has a knack for getting open, and route running has improved. Not a great blocker, but it is improving, and hasn’t been asked to do much of that.
The NFL is going to big athletic Tight Ends. Look at the teams that made the playoffs and the Super bowl. McDonald may be a CAP casualty plus he cannot stay healthy. The kid from Mizzu can step right in to a starting position. Big Ben needs some more weapons.
