Pos: 
Athletic run-and-chase linebacker best in pursuit. Explosive, displays terrific range and quickly gets out to the flanks to make plays. Gets depth on pass drops, covers a lot of area on the field and easily changes direction without losing momentum. Breaks down well, stays on the receiver’s hip out of breaks and shows the ability to defend passes 25 yards downfield. Fires up the field and gives effort against the run.
Neg: 
Undersized and easily taken from the play by a single blocker. Will occasionally bite on play-action and ball fakes. Lack of height will result in mismatches in coverage.
Analysis: 
Okereke is an athletic, intense linebacker who sells out to make plays and shows the ability to quickly chew up ground and get to the action. He has size limitations and must polish his instincts but has enough ability develop into a starter on the inside of a 3-4 alignment as well as play special teams.
