Second Round


Bobby Okereke Indianapolis Colts

Chiseled, athletic frame with prototype modern off-ball linebacker build. Well-built with enough space to add more mass.

Dynamic on-field athlete with outstanding overall athletic profile. Three-sporter in football, basketball, and throws events. Can finish two-handed at the rim on the court with gather and two-foot launch base. Shot put, javelin, and long jump competitor. Placed third in South Carolina 4A shot put finals (51-10).

Flat-out football player. Varied on-field experience on both sides as a ball carrier, three-point and off-ball defender, and over the slot. Functional athleticism noticeably improved in senior season. Speed is not verified in a combine setting or on the track, but field speed is not a question, especially after senior campaign. Showed home run-hitting big-play speed on offense, translating to excellent pursuit range and closing ability on defense.

Screams downhill when locked on a target. Because he's gotten snaps with a hand on the ground, has experience playing above his weight. Shows encouraging anticipation and breaking ability in coverage with plus ball skills for a linebacker projection.

Plays mad and hits with purpose. Can provide the big hit. Occasionally gets a little too fast and loose with tackling technique. Redirection hitch shows at times so short-area lateral twitch can get more consistent. Adding some mass and getting stronger will help stand up to high-major blockers in the box.

One of the top linebackers in the 2022 recruiting class. Possesses a terrific profile for an off-ball linebacker projection relative to recent NFL Draft results. Owns the tools to become an impact player at high-profile program with long-term NFL Draft early-round potential.
