On the Hoof: He is very similar in size but a tad thicker than Ronald Powell. Odighizuwa has an extremely muscular upper body, yet gets most of his strength from his powerful lower body.
Needs Improvement: Like most young pass-rushers, he has to work on leverage and staying lower at the point of attack. Standing up just puts a bigger target up for opposing offensive linemen.
Most Impressive: At only 234 pounds, I have seen him sink his hips and drive 300-pound linemen straight back into the pocket like a rag doll. He is also one of the nicest and most coachable players in the country.
Conclusion: Has the potential to become one of the best players ever from the state of Oregon. Barring any serious injuries, he is one of the surest bets for future NFL stardom in the class of 2010.
