Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BOBBY OKEREKE: Stanford, 6013 239 4.59. Three year starter from Santa Ana, CA. Smart instinctive prospect with the tools NFL teams look for in a Will or inside backer in a sub-package. Initial reads are usually spot-on as he is patient and works a lateral shuffle with a burst to the alley. Has sideline to sideline chase ability. Takes on blockers on the move with a solid punch and has the ability to separate and slip a block working outside. Gets quickly into tackling when chasing or coming off a block. Can make plays in space staying on the inside hip of a ball carrier. In coverage focused run/pass read gets him quickly into his drop. Closes voids in zones with vision to see the routes and the quarterback. Gets underneath receivers in intermediate zones and is sudden reacting to throws in front of him. Creates problems for quarterbacks by getting in the throwing lane. In man coverage has the speed to cover a wheel route by a back up the field. Also displays the short area agility to mirror inside and outside cuts by a back release. Shows a little tightness changing directions and has some trouble with misdirection and cutbacks. Will take an occasional false step. Not a consistent downhill reactor and can be too passive with the play right at him. Occasionally will overrun a cutback in the alley. Very good in kick coverage and has had some big hits. Should be a solid sub-package player and special team’s ace. Has a chance to develop into a starter. 2018 stats: 96 T, 7.5 TFL, 3.5 sacks, 5 PBU, 3 QBH, 2 FF. Edge speed:left 2.22, right 1.97. OSR:9/15. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34 1/2, H-10 1/8, BP-DNP, SS-4.27).
