Njoku is a good pass blocker. In the run game he's marginal. Who gives a fuck, it's not 1986 anymore. Split him out wide and give 3 WR looks and run that way or take him off the field on 3rd and 1. With his receiving ability any team would be happy to have him. Top 30 pick for sure. Could go top 20.

I do agree when you split him out wide or give him an assignment where he has to locate a guy in space and get to him-- he is a pretty good blocker. In a phone booth, not so much.

But why the hell put him in a phone booth. He takes a guy out of the box and away from the play, anyway (good as a block) and I wouldn't even let him block on those WR screens, because he'll be better catching and running them than any Steelers WR except for maybe Martavis.

The way the draft is setting up, I think that at 1.30 there are going to be some good players at positions of need, one way or another.

Unfortunately...nobody except the Steelers brain trust...

My sons high school football team played against NjokI in back to back years in the state playoffs.
They beat and eliminated us in 2012 and we.beat them in 2013 to go on and play in the state finals game at Met Life.

Always had myself saying this kid is a freak with deer speed and I hope they don't pass to him.
Watch the video below from that game.
He has a ridiculous 99 yard TD catch and run that cover 100 + yards. Crushing play that almost tied the game.

My son is #70 in black. Pulling RG and DT. Recovers a fumble about 2 minute mark. Gets penetration and in on tackle of huge extra point attempt after Njoko a long TD.

Njoko is more football fast , in pads game fast than he will be in shorts.
Speaks to the physical freak he is.
That's what you want.

He will be what Ladarius Green was and look what he did to our offense.
We did not sign Green to block.

NjokI 4.70 40 is not great.

Howard!! 4.51 for 256lbs

Since its a pissed off thread

David Njoku is going to struggle with the 1st thing at the combine

Height and weight

He will be under 235
He will measure under 6-4

Njoku, David says hi:
6040 246lbs 10


With reports Njoku Hodges and Everett are expected to be 4.6/4.7 guys this class begins to deflate.

Tell him I said hello...Its a shame you run like a fast offensive tackle.

If he weighed 235 he may have run sub 4.6?

you know I'm just messing w you, right? :x

Hodges ran 4.53, Njoku 4.64 officially... neither was great-- but strength of Njoku's game is after the catch. I'm more interested to see the COD info for these cats. I don't think this class is as good as 2010 TE class, but I think there's a place in the league for Howard, Njoku, Engram, and a couple of other guys from the rest.
