Bottom Line

Odighizuwa is consistently disruptive because he has the burst that you need coming off the edge. And more than that, he has the power to thump you and has a spin move he’ll whip on you. And if none of that works, he’s a technician with his hands and has blazing hand speed to execute his moves.

I’m interested to see what his 40 is at the combine because he looks to have plenty of speed chasing plays down. And looking at him, he is a physical specimen that you want to be one of the first ones getting off the bus when traveling for a game. He also has a tremendous, non-stop motor and is relentless at whatever it is he’s trying to do on the field.

He won’t quit on you.

But since he has the surgeries and even though it wasn’t his fault, the production wasn’t there. But the more you see him, the more you like him and his rise after the Senior Bowl reflects that. He’s already crept into the first round and I don’t think he goes back from here as the testing starts.

I also give him a 1st-round grade but late in the first round.

He could be that piece that gets a playoff team over the top.
