Levi Onwuzurike is a stud 3 technique with the potential to bulk up and play in an odd front. While his technique needs some refinement, there is no doubt that his athleticism is top-notch, and can be a really good NFL player with some fine-tuning. If the Vikings choose Onwuzurike, he would benefit greatly from the coaching Andre Patterson can provide.
