Pos: 
Former LSU transfer and developing offensive tackle with big upside. Sets with a wide base, works to bend his knees and quickly sets up off the snap. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and works his hands. Displays the ability to slide laterally in pass protection and shows range off the edge. Easily moves about the field, gives effort and makes outstanding use of angles and positioning to seal defenders from the play. Displays good hand punch and knocks defenders from their angles of attack.
Neg: 
Must significantly improve his balance. Seems unsure of himself at times. Must improve his strength to finish blocks.
Analysis: 
Okeke comes off a terrific season, and although he wasn’t initially graded by scouts, he presently ranks as a priority free agent. He's an outstanding developmental prospect who must improve his balance and strength, but he could make an NFL roster two years down the road.
