    Njoku vs OJ


    Njoku


    Pros: explosive athlete. Primarily a split TE. Can create lots of yac.


    Cons: Not as good of a WR as some are lead to believe. Body catches at times


    Stats: Brad Kaaya


    OJ


    Pros: Scheme diverse, inline, split, wide. Has the athletic profile and size advantage to win in most situations against smaller DBs.


    Cons: Have to draft him at 5. College offense didn't use him as a seam runner.


    Stats: Bamas Run game.

    Howard is better. Better blocker, better hands, faster. Njoku is a good athlete, but I think he's a bit overrated and I worry about those hands.

    Howard all day, every day! Howard can do it all!

    Plus, Njoku's hands worry me. Howard on the other hand, seems to catch everything effortlessly!

    I think I'd almost rather have Engram over Njoku as I believe he'd compliment Walker and our system better.

    I'm not sure that I see it in Njoku.

    All you hear about is his athleticism, but it didn't really show at the combine.

    I do. His hands need some work but he is awesome after the catch and he is a very high effort blocker. The effort is there so coaching up some techniques and fundamentals should be relatively easy. Seems like a good dude from all his interviews as well. Some guys completely turn me off when I hear them try and articulate sentences.

    His pro day 40 seems to be much more in line with his speed on the field.

    OJ only at 12 or greater only if Foster gone. Njoku at 18 or greater if Davis gone.

    No to oj at 5

    This is kind of silly. Howard is a top 5 pick, njoku is an around 20 guy. At 5 I'd take niether, at 18 I'd take either. I'd only be ok with taking either guy at 12+, if players i like more are off the board.
