High School: Cedar Grove HS [NJ]









Draft 2017

Pick No.29

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 1

Pick (Overall): 29 (29)

Pick Analysis: NFL teams looking for an athletic tight end should book their tickets for Coral Gables just about every year. Njoku (pronounced nJOE-koo) is the next highly-rated end to enter the NFL, following Jeremy Shockey, Greg Olsen, Jimmy Graham, Kevin Everett, and Kellen Winslow II. The former high school receiver and national boys high jump champion only started nine games in his two years on the field with the Hurricanes, but was a regular option in the passing game. He caught 21 passes for 362 yards and a touchdown as a redshirt sophomore, leading the team by averaging 17.2 yards per reception. In 2016, Njoku didn't win all-conference honors because the ACC was stacked at the position, but he was a major threat in the red zone (43-698, eight TDs).
