Eguakun flashes power and nastiness in the run game, able to win at the point of attack and athletic enough to get out as a pulling blocker before landing blocks on the move at the second level.

At his best mauling in the run game, playing with a nasty demeanor and consistently keeping it going through the whistle.

He’s a coordinated athlete who can win at the point of attack in the run game, and Eguakun can also move to consistently land blocks at the second level.

Takes much more pride in the run game, where he plays through the whistle with tremendous physicality.

Cerebral player, quick to react to twists and stunts up front, and he shows an excellent understanding of angles when moving out as a run blocker.

Eguakun moves much better than his relatively squat, square frame would suggest. Fluid and flexible, he’s capable of moving in space and latching on to moving targets at the second level.


Sometimes Eguakun simply gets too impatient to sit back in his set, reaching and lunging and generally playing with poor balance.

Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.

Anticipates speed rushers attacking the edge and will over-set to the outside, leaving inside rushing lanes wide open for defenders to jab-step outside and re-direct through the gap.


In 2021 as a junior Eguakun saw action in 13 games and totaled 870 snaps. He gave up 11 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and no sacks while playing at center.

In 2022 as a senior Eguakun saw action in 12 games and played a total of 773 snaps for the Gators. He allowed 13 QB hurries, one QB hit, and no sacks while playing at center.
