Owamagbe Odighizuwa (DE), UCLA
6’3” | 267 lbs.
61 tackles, 11.5 TFL, 6.0 sacks
3rd round, No. 74 overall (New York Giants)
What scouts are saying:
"In the Bruins' versatile 3-4 base defense, his main responsibility is to seal the edge and play the run, using his length and power to occupy blockers to help plug run lanes and give the other rushers a chance to disrupt the pocket. On some passing downs, Odighizuwa does stand up as an edge rusher and has a chance to show off his skill-set as a pass rush threat, using his natural bend and athleticism to beat blockers in space." - CBSSports.com's Dane Brugler
"Odighizuwa has some scheme versatility, but he's not necessarily a versatile player. Some scouts believe that he could open some eyes with his straight-line speed in his workout, but his marginal pass-rush skills and average athleticism could stunt his draft stock." - NFL.com's Lance Zierlein
"Strong at the point of attack. Plays with desired anchor and strong lower body. Run defender who can close down creases. Gets off ball with good pad level and has potential to convert speed to power. Hands are violent and active. Relentless and competitive. Never gives up on a pass rush." - NFL.com's Lance Zierlein
