The Friday Sports Report – 2017 NFL Draft Prospects


Tight End

Is David Njoku being undervalued?

It’s difficult to comment on it with a real definitive line, but I believe at this point he is. Njoku is a true threat as an offensive weapon and is good enough in that element to justify overlooking his deficiencies as a run blocker.

David NjokuYou can find mocks with Njoku listed in the first but there seems to be little consensus on David being locked in as a day one selection. Njoku currently equates to a first round pick in our metric with a relative score worthy of a pick between selections 14 and 18. Seem a bit high? Possibly, but only because of the value compared to position. We have heard that the Buccaneers are looking at potential scenarios to move up in the first with David being their target so perhaps there is more of a buzz for Njoku with GMs than there is with analysts.

The reality is that David Njoku has the potential to end up a more effective pass catcher, chain mover and game changer than wide receiver Mike Williams but will likely be drafted after the Clemson product.

We’ll take David over Mike for the long haul.

C.E.O. and lead writer for the Live 4 Sport Network. I started on the journey of draft analysis by ghost writing for an online scouting resource in 2007. It was from that experience that we developed the system we now use for our NFL draft projections, player analysis and fantasy football information. We revised the system in 2011 and it now outperforms the majority of major online draft and fantasy projection sites and consistently identifies players that are either overlooked or overhyped. The Live 4 Sport Network is dedicated to constantly improving our process to always put out the best information possible for draftniks and fantasy football players alike.
