Strong Points

Good athlete, solid hands, adjusts well to the ball and can make the difficult catch. Very good runner after the catch showing strength, power and some make-you-miss. Has a quick release and can get in and out of cuts to gain separation. Willing blocker.

Weak Points

Needs to get bigger and stronger to hold up as a blocker at the next level. Lacks good blocking technique. Raw as a route runner, doesn't consistently finish routes. Still had two years of eligibility remaining.

The Way We See It

Njoku is a third-year sophomore entering the draft. He is a gifted athlete with speed and body control. Looks more like a jumbo wide receiver than a tight end. While he lines up in tight at times, more often than not he is flexed or split out. He is a bit raw as a route runner but he is so athletic he can still get in and out of cuts quickly. Has very good hands and adjusts nicely to the ball. Strong runner after the catch with speed and power. Will need work on blocking to be able to play tight end at the next level. Will most likely be used as a "move" tight end or as a huge wide receiver. Has similarities to Kelvin Benjamin.
