PROSPECT SUMMARY - OSA ODIGHIZUWA

Osa Odighizuwa is a good athlete with good agility and balance. He plays with good natural leverage and is tough against the run. He plays with good effort and hustle to locate the football. In the passing game, he offers value on the edge or reduced down inside. He penetrates gaps and uses his good natural leverage as a bull rusher. He has some explosion in his hips and has shown flashes of upside as a rusher. He lacks ideal size, which may hinder him as an every-down player in the NFL unless he’s used as a defensive end.  

Ideal Role: Subpackage rusher.

Scheme Fit: In a single gap or even front scheme. Either as a defensive end or tackle.
