2020 NFL Combine: Tight End Prospects, Invites, What To Watch For

By

5. Albert Okwuegbunam, Missouri 6-5, 255 (3)

Why He’s Here On The List: Blow off the negatives and concerns – he’s an NFL pass catcher who looked and played the part at times throughout his three years. When Drew Lock and the Mizzou offense got going, he was fantastic with 43 catches as a sophomore. However, he’s had problems getting banged up and he’s not going to do much as a blocker.

What The NFL Types Want To See: How quick is he? He has the size, and he can catch, but he has to get past his other issues and concerns by being tremendously quick and athletic through the shorter drills. The interview process will matter, too – will he fight and play through the bumps and bruises?

Bottom Line: There are way too many good parts to his game and his skill set to not take a flier on him after the second round. He could seamlessly step-in as a good pass catcher who produces right out of the box. As long as you don’t ask him to blast away on someone, he’ll produce.
