Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Seattle Seahawks in Round 1 with the #6 pick.

Strengths

  • Best footwork of any pass blocker in the draft
  • Great zone blocker in the running game. Gets to the second level on run blocks.
  • Four year starter in college. Played at right tackle as a freshman and has started at left tackle ever since
  • Aggressive as a run blocker. Most athletic linemen rely on quickness to seal the edge. Okung can do that and still drive a guy 5 yards off the ball
  • Uses long arms to his advantage. Has the ability to reach for his block without losing balance or holding
  • One of the safest picks in the draft
  

Weaknesses

  • Doesn't have overwhelming bulk.
  • Drive blocking can be an issue on occasion. Plays better when defensive linemen are in a gap or stunting
  • Has a tendency to play a little high
