Obi Ezeh is a disappointing LB prospect. After his great sophomore year I thought he had some potential but he has yet to improve or even come close to matching those numbers. He’s not a very good athlete and for his size and experience he is an awful run defender and still makes too many mistakes. He may not have a true position at the next level. 3-4 ILB would seem logical but he would have a tough time shedding blocks inside. He lacks the range to be an OLB and his upside is at best a special team player. I think it will be very hard for him to make an NFL teams roster.

Scouting Report:


- Great size
- 4 year starter
- Good tackler, sound technique
- Gets his pads low
- Doesn’t miss many tackles
- Understands his assignments in coverage


- Poor athlete
- Stiff hips and struggles to change directions
- Will have a tough time in coverage in the NFL
- Doesn’t have great range
- Struggles to shed blocks
- Takes poor angles and runs himself out of the play too often
- Doesn’t play the run as well as you would expect from his size
- Poor awareness and instincts
- Bites on play fakes too much
- Won’t be much of a pass rusher
- Has actually regressed
- Limited upside

1-poor, 2-weak, 3-above average, 4-very good, 5-elite

Speed: 2.0
Tackling: 3.0
Coverage: 2.0
Point Of Attack: 1.5
Instincts: 2.0
Pass Rush: 1.0
Pro Potential: 1.0
