Strengths
Great athlete; huge catch radius; extends his arms when catching the ball; times jumps properly; able to come down with balls in traffic; difficult to bring down after the catch.
Weaknesses
Routes are inconsistent; isn't a strong blocker at the POA. Could stand to add some playing strength; doesn't have elite speed; will need to focus on the fundamentals more in order to succeed at the next level.
Overall Analysis
Great athlete that has a high upside. Although his game is still raw, the natural playmaking abiity is obvious. Njoku is a good enough athlete to play early on and might be able to start for teams that do not ask their tight ends to block often. He should have a long career and has Pro=Bowl potential, should he choose to realize it.
