EDGE - ARI
Expert NoteView More Notes
Ojulari's a speed edge rusher with a ton of bend. He's a thinner EDGE defender that relies on his speed and explosiveness more than anything else. Has the power to engage, but tends to be driven backwards when he encounters bigger offensive lineman. Excellent hand usage and has a deadly swipe move that compliments his speed and bend around the edge nicely. Excellent first step quickness and able to get downfield quickly. Decent in run defense. Has a tendency to drop his eyes and engage with the blocker in front of him rather than keeping his eyes up and looking for the ball-carrier. Tough. Fighter mentality and always working to keep his legs moving. Solid tackler and able to wrap up when the play is near him. Smart player and shows good instincts when dropping back into coverage. As mentioned before, tremendous bend around the edge and he should give stiffer offensive lineman fits. Overall, Ojulari has a chance to be an excellent 3-4 OLB that can win with speed off the edge. He still needs to improve on multiple levels, but the upside is there. If he learns how to add a couple of other pass rush moves to his arsenal, while adding some upper body strength, he could be dangerous down the road.
