Overview

Okung is a prototypical left tackle in that he has rare size and long arms that allow him to control and steer pass rushers on by the pocket. He shows excellent balance and body control but will occasionally overextend or reach for the block which keeps him from sustaining blocks as long as he could. Okung should be an early draft pick on the offensive line and has the body type that teams are looking for when it comes to protecting the blind side.

Analysis

Strengths

Okung possesses prototypical size for a left tackle. Has started at tackle since his true freshman season. Maintains great balance with almost elite feet. Neutralizes the speed rush by setting fast. Shows a mean streak which helps in the running game. Engages defenders with long arms and has the straight-line speed to get to the second level.

Weaknesses

Okung does not have many holes in his game. At 6'8" he will play tall at times and his height makes it difficult to always keep low and change directions laterally against quicker defenders.
