1. David Njoku, Cle

School: Miami | Ht: 6’4” | Wt: 246 | 40: 4.64 | Year: 3SO

Drafted: 1st round, 29th overallNjoku might have more upside than OJ Howard, and he should have no problem making an impact starting Week 1, since Cleveland cut Gary Barnidge.

Scouting Report: Njoku is the most intriguing TE prospect in this year’s draft because he’s incredibly raw and a freakish athlete. In high school, Njoku played wide receiver and was a national high jump champion with a 6’11” leap. He averaged 16.2 yards per catch and scored on 18.6% of his receptions (8 of 43) last year at Miami. Njoku needs plenty of polish as he comes to the league with just 9 career starts under his belt as a redshirt sophomore. In 2016, he worked in a TE committee and posted 43/698/8. He checked in with freaky long arms at 35¼”, and he measured out at at 6’4”, 246 pounds with 10” hands. It was no surprise that he killed the jumps with a 37½” vertical and a 11’1” broad jump. According to, Njoku ranks in the top 10% at the position in arm length, broad jump, and vertical jump. It’s no surprise that Njoku can go up and get the ball in jump-ball situations with his leaping ability. He’s also pretty graceful in the air, with good body control to come down with contested catches. He is a scary deep threat because of his vertical speed and his ability to track passes downfield. Njoku is quick out of his breaks and can quickly eat up yards after the catch, and he can be used all over the formation. He does have pretty strong hands but does have some drops on tape. Njoku won’t be confused for a developed blocker at this point, but he’s competitive at the point of attack and held his own despite a lack of experience. He needs refinement throughout his game, and he’ll look to fill out his body to become a better blocker. He was at least asked to block plenty in Mark Richt’s offense last season, so he has some experience coming into the league. He reminds us a bit of Eric Ebron comi...
