Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAVID NJOKU: Miami, 6040 246 4.66. Junior entry from Cedar Grove, NJ. Five starts in 2016 and nine in his career. Last name pronounced in-jo-coo. Last season averaged 11.5 yards after the catch. Has been timed as low as a 4.49 and has high jumped 6’11". Not a natural hand catcher but makes the play and holds onto the ball. Quick in and out of his breaks when running pivot routes. A flexible athlete who is an offensive vertical threat. Gives effort but will need technique work starting with his stance as an inline blocker. Could use more bulk weight. Good initial quickness which leads to downfield separation as a route runner. Comfortable and dominant in traffic when attacking the ball. Long arms and strong hands help him grab the ball out of the air and win more of his share of the 50/50 balls. Athletic and agile after the catch. Not easy to tackle. Raw in all facets of the game, but has all the markings of a big time playmaker on the next level. His lean and muscular build limits much growth potential, but he can grow in the technique and mechanics department. Talent to provide impact play early in his career. 2016 stats: 43-698, 16.2 ypr, 8 TD. OSR:7/17. First/second round. (A-35 1/4, H-10, VJ-37.5, SS-4.36).
