Scouting Report on Josh Oglesby

by Mike Farrell - 06/19/2006
Oglesby has great feet and is very athletic for his size. He plays physical, extends his arms well and is quick enough to get to the next level. Oglesby has a great frame and long arms and is solid in both run and pass blocking. He gets out of his stance well in pass protection and uses his wingspan to keep pass rushers to the outside. He anchors well and doesn’t over commit. As a run blocker, he explodes off the ball and uses his massive size and reach to toss opponents around. He needs to get more consistent as he stays low and shows excellent leverage on most plays but gets too high at times. He shows excellent athleticism for a big man and avoids pileups well when trying to get to the next level. His combination of size and quickness makes him a special left tackle prospect and he has a physical nature about him. His level of competition isn’t great and right now he gets away with some mechanical flaws because he’s so much bigger than everyone else, but his ceiling is very high.
