Michael Okwo
SI Grade
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
5-11.5, 232
40 Time:

BIOGRAPHY: All-Conference selection as a senior when he became a full-time starter posting 95/5/2. Originally awarded All-Conference honors as a special-teams player after his freshman campaign.

POSITIVES: Athletic and instinctive linebacker best suited for the weak side. Displays outstanding speed, quickly changes direction and is relentless in pursuit of the action. Makes a lot of plays out to the flanks. Instinctive, immediately picks up coverage assignments.

NEGATIVES: Not strong at the point, gets caught up in the trash or easily blocked from the action. Has a history of injuries, which caused him to miss significant playing time.

ANALYSIS: A terrific athlete with a good head for the game, Okwo works hard to make plays in every direction of the field. Offers potential as a one-gap linebacker and could eventually develop into a starter if he remains healthy.

PROJECTION: Early Fourth Round
