Mobolaji Afariogun

TE | (6-3, 230, 4.8) | Western Michigan
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Redshirted in 1998. Played in every game and started four times in '99, catching 10 passes for 69 yards and two touchdowns. All-Mid-American Conference tight end in 2000 and '01. Caught 32-365-3 in 2000 and 24-228-1 in '01. Ranked second on the team in '02 with 39 catches (for 417 yards and five touchdowns) in 12 games.

Positives: Athletic tight end with marginal size and adequate speed who projects to H-back on the next level. Has good ball skills and hands and can make the tough catches away from the frame of his body when he is reaching for the ball.

Negatives: Is not an in-line base blocker. Inconsistent blocker in space and on the move. Has untimely drops on simple throws. Lacks a burst out of his breaks to get separation as a receiver. Not a really nifty, nimble player or route runner.

Summary: Almost certain to be an H-back on the next level and will get a chance to make an NFL team.
