Emmanuel Ogbah is an impressive physical specimen thanks to his length and size. However, he’s still developing as a football player. This season is critical for Ogbah as he must show he’s more than an athlete.

Ogbah flashes the ability to generate pressure on the quarterback. He’s most successful when he uses his length to keep clean and attack the edge. The problem is that he lacks a wide-array of pass rush moves– mainly relying on his speed.

His commitment and feel for playing the run is his biggest weakness. Ogbah struggles to identify the ball carrier and often takes himself out of the play by attacking the wrong side of the field. There are a ton of prospects who had the physical talent to make in the NFL but lacked the awareness to stick in the league.

At this point in his career, Ogbah is too much of a high-risk prospect to carry anything more than a 4th round grade.
