Adetokunbo Ogundeji

Height: 6’4″

Weight: 268 lbs

Strengths: A true senior, Adetokunbo Ogundeji was progressively more productive each season. He amassed 7 sacks over the course of 10 games and had 13 over his 3 seasons for the Fighting Irish. Ogundeji has the ideal size and length for a prototypical 4-3 defensive end. He uses his length very well to keep the offensive lineman from fully engaging. His active hands pack a powerful punch. Displays a high football IQ. Understands where he needs to be in the running game and also gets his hands up when he is unable to get to the quarterback.

Weaknesses: While he has the ideal size, Ogundeji isn’t the strongest player. He shows a tendency to get washed out easily by double teams. His pass rush plan is inconsistent. Once the lineman does get inside the length and engages him, Ogundeji struggles to counter and disengage.

While he is a raw player right now, Adetokunbo Ogundeji will be a sought after player in the middle rounds due to his length and athletic upside. I believe he has the potential to be a solid starting edge in the NFL with the proper coaching and development.
