Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-MAC honors in each of his final two seasons at Western Michigan. Started the final 39 games of his career, with the last 26 coming at left tackle. Made 13 starts at right tackle as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Massive offensive lineman who plays with surprising athleticism. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and keeps his feet moving. Displays terrific lateral blocking range, can slide off the edge and stays square to keep defenders in front of him. Patient in pass protection, keeps his head on a swivel and controls opponents once engaged at the point. Explosive, quick out to the second level and large enough to block down on opponents.
Neg: 
Late with his hands and must do a better job correctly placing them into opponents. Really does not play with a nasty attitude. Rarely finishes run blocks.
Analysis: 
Okorafor possesses the size, quickness and agility to be a starting left tackle at the next level if he applies himself on every snap. He lacks intensity and at times seems to go half-speed, which are major red flags. If Okorafor pulls it all together, he’ll have a long career at the next level, otherwise he may struggle to ever make it with the first team.
