Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about ALBERT OKWUEGBUNAM: Missouri, 6054 258 4.49. Junior entry, three-year starter, Springfield, IL. Earned second-team All SEC honors in both 2017 and 2019 while finishing as a Mackey Award finalist in his injury-shortened 2018. Has the size and ball skills that are going to be a problem for defenders in the NFL. His length and thickness alone are tough to handle, but he proved to be an efficient and savvy receiver of the ball, bringing in 23 touchdowns over 33 games. However he isn’t an every-down threat right away, as his blocking and down-to-down contributions are a ways away. He never played a traditional tight end role and his effectiveness in the trenches needs a lot of work. Can use that body to shield defenders from the ball. A tough target for defenders to reach around when the ball is approaching. Nimble and able to adjust to the ball near boundaries. Very aware of where he is in relation to defenders. Effective in contested situations. Has a solid short area burst to the ball and with his catch radius, he can get to a lot that others simply cannot. Shows good footwork as a route runner. Lacks quickness when asked to change direction without anticipation. Stiff hips and a lack of lower body flexibility. Ineffective as a blocker. Doesn’t use his length to sustain. Weak hands and doesn’t keep his feet moving. 2019 stats: 26-306, 11.8 ypr, 6 TD. OSR:2/19. No bench press, jumps, shuttle - medical. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34 1/8, H-10 1/4, VJ-DNP, SS-DNP).
