Player Description


Name: Azeez Ojulari Position: EDGE/Outside linebacker

College: Georgia Uniform Number: #13

Class: Redshirt Sophomore Height: 6-3

Weight: 240 lbs Projected Round: Mid 1st - 3rd round

Strengths:


  • Ideal size and length

  • Possesses natural power and strength

  • Able to take on bigger bodies head-on

  • Exceptional flexibility - able to dip and bend the edge

  • Active hands - make it difficult for opposing linemen to get proper hand placement

  • Has the athleticism and lateral mobility to drop back in coverage

  • Strong at the point of attack

  • Excellent closing speed

  • Possesses a variety of pass rush maneuvers

  • Hard-hitting - physical by nature

  • Good awareness - rarely gets fooled on quarterback fakes

  • Maintains a reasonable pad level when coming out of his stance


Weaknesses:


When pursuing a ball carrier in open space, Ojulari's motor is questionable, as he has somewhat of tendency of letting up instead of continuing his pursuit. His pad level at times can be too high, which has a noticeable effect on his hand placement.


When his initial pass rush attempt fails, Ojulari does not have a fallback maneuver which he can use to regain leverage. Though he is good at taking on blocks, at the times this results in him getting stuck on them. Ojulari needs to do a better job of shedding his blocks so he can continue to be productive.
