Obi Obialo WR Oklahoma Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Has top focus and does a nice job catching the ball in stride. Decisive runner who doesn't go down easily despite his size.
  • Generally reliable receiver capable of making difficult catches in traffic over the middle or one on one down the sideline.
  • Has the size, length, and strength to defeat press jams. Can make the spectacular catch. A decent open-field runner with some agility and the ability to break tackles.
  • Often used on deep routes, getting separation down the sideline or over the middle on crossing routes by extending his arms rather than pure speed.
  • Does not have exceptional straight-line speed but takes advantage of open seams when his quarterback is on target.
Weaknesses
  • Lacks foot quickness to separate and could be more physical. He has yet to get the maximum potential out of his natural athletic ability.
  • Does not always use his hands to secure deep throws, allowing the ball into his pads and chest.
  • A straight-line athlete with only average speed, lacking the wheels to run away from anyone at the next level. Struggles separating in tight coverage.
  • Does not own elite speed. Freezes at times when trying to juke defenders in space. Walls off his man as a blocker, allowing them to shed and make the play outside.
  • Hands are good, not great. Will drop some easy balls and sometimes will body catch. Occasionally fails to high point.
