Biography: Two-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a junior. Played in four games as a senior before missing the majority of the season with a knee injury.
Positives: Large, strong tackle who plays with a nasty attitude. Displays a degree of explosiveness in his game, quickly gets into blocks and is strong at the point. Turns defenders from the ball and seals them from the action. Shows the ability to adjust and knock pass rushers from their angle of attack. Better than average movement skills.
Negatives: Lacks fluid footwork in space. Not a natural knee bender. Haphazard in his movements and lacks blocking balance.
Analysis: Okafor was showing signs of positive development as a junior before being beset with injuries last season. He's a long shot to make it, but his size and physical ability make him worth consideration for a practice squad.
