Levi Onwuzurike aligns as an interior defensive line prospect. He has excellent overall athleticism and demonstrates good body quickness as a pass rusher.

He demonstrates the toughness and emotional endurance to play in the trenches every snap. 

Ideal Role: This player is an eventual starting NFL defensive lineman.

Scheme Fit: He’s an ideal fit as an interior player in a 4-3, but could also gain weight and play in an odd front.
