STRENGTHS: Long arms, light feet and excellent balance. Ogbeuhi's athleticism in pass protection and while blocking on the move is obvious.WEAKNESSES: Still adjusting to handling speed rushers off the corner. --Rob Rang
Whereas Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews were exceptionally highly regarded prospects dating back to their prep days, Ogbeuhi choice the Aggies over just a handful of other offers and redshirted in 2009. He earned the starting job at right guard a year later but suffered an ankle injury in his first game (Arkansas) and missed the next three contests, ultimately playing in 10 games and starting six. Noticeably stronger, Ogbeuhi (pronounced ah-BOO-hee) took his game to another level in 2012, forming a devastating right side of the offensive line with Matthews. With Matthews flipping to the left side to take over for Joeckel, the Aggies moved Ogbeuhi to the outside in 2013The Aggies have become somewhat of an offensive tackle factory. Although not yet a household name, Ogbuehi could be the third first round offensive tackle out of Texas A&M the past two years. In the long run, his time at guard could serve him well, as he'll be more accustomed to the physicality of close quarters -- something that many rookie offensive tackles struggle with in their first year in the NFL.
06/05/2014 - ROB RANG'S MAY 15, 2014 TOP 32 BIG BOARD: 2. Cedric Ogbuehi, OT, 6-5, 300, rSr., Texas A&M: Former Aggies Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews were the second and sixth overall picks the past two years, and Ogbuehi has more pure talent than either of them. Long-armed and remarkably light on his feet, he'll join them as a top-10 pick if he takes to left tackle in 2014 as easily as anticipated. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
