Cons:

  • Needs to sustain blocks longer
  • Doesn’t explode off the line when run blocking.
  • Needs more strength and power

Overall

Okorafor plays with sound technique and has all the tools to be a starting left tackle in the pros. He has great footwork, arm length, and balance, but moving forward he needs to add some strength. It would be great to see him develop a nasty streak and be one of those real tough left tackles. He is a better pass blocker then run blocker at the moment. He is shaping up to be a 2nd round pick on draft day.
