Comparison

Chukwuma Okorafor Pittsburgh Steelers

Big body with longer arms and also an athletic lower body. Very good athlete who shows that on the basketball court as well as positions other than offensive tackle. Showed twitch, fluidity and burst in defensive and special teams clips. Gets into the second level as an offensive lineman. Coordinated, light on his feet and fluid. Good feet in pass protection and bends fairly well. Shows flashes of mean streak and finishing his blocks. Big and strong enough to take initial contact from bull rushers and not be pushed back. Hand placement and consistent pad level can still be improved. Labeled as a project, but he is further along than given credit. Tremendous ceiling means he still has room to get better. Will likely need a year or two, but is closer to early playing time than his relatively inexperienced profile would lead many to believe. Has the upside to be a multi-year starter and potential NFL draft pick.
