Okung displays good coordination and footwork in the run game and possess the length to steer defenders down the line onto slide-down blocks. He showcases good bend and natural leverage on the move, has the ability to reach defenders off his frame and to pump his legs through contact and finish blocks. He has a smooth, compact kick-step and is consistently able to reach the corner vs. speed rushers. He does a nice job extending his arms in pass protection and quickly redirecting on the counter move. Okung lacks the power to drive defenders off the ball as an in-line run blocker and allows linemen to work their way through his blocks when he doesn't have his feet in front of him. But he's explosive off the snap and consistently is able to get into linemen quickly and seal on contact. He showcases good hand placement and does a nice job locking out and sitting into his stance. But he isn't heavy-handed, doesn't have the upper body to consistently stick to blocks and can be disengaged from by a powerful swat in the pass game. He relies on his lateral agility and quickness to mirror and isn't going to engulf on contact. Okung exhibits better base strength vs. the bull-rush than given credit for, sits into his stance well, plays with a natural pad level and can anchor on contact. Overall, he possesses the length, footwork and pad level to project as a good NFL left tackle.
