Overview:

Njoku was very productive for only playing in 26 career games, posting 64 receptions, for 1060 receiving yards, and 9 receiving touchdowns. He has great size, he has very good speed, he is very athletic, he is sure handed, he is a great pass catcher, he is also a great redzone, and deep threat, and he can lineup at tight end and wide receiver if needed. He is also a good route runner, and he is an offensive playmaker. He does struggle at times in the run blocking department, and like I said earlier, he has only played in 26 career games, so only 2 seasons under his belt. With that said, I view Njoku as a late 1st-round pick, to a early 2nd-round pick at worse, where he should end up being a teams top receiving tight end.
