Player Overview

Ogbah was named an All-American, the AP's Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a finalist for the Ted Hendricks award after leading the conference in sacks (12.5) and tackles for loss (16.5) while setting a school record with 19 quarterback hurries as a junior. He finished his career with 28 sacks.

One of college football's breakout prospects in 2014, Ogbah earned his first start in the 2014 season opener vs. Florida State and showed right away that he was one of the best players on the field. He finished his sophomore season with 17.0 tackles for loss and 11.0 sacks, ranking among the conference leaders in both categories.

Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: Already has the look of an NFL player with a well-proportioned build and the grown-man strength to bully blockers off the edge. A disruptive presence whether lining up on the right or left side, sporting an exciting combination of speed, length and power. A power defender who plays a physical brand of football, but also looks comfortable in space when asked to drop and cover.

WEAKNESSES: Still learning the nuances of the position. While highly thought of in the scouting community, Ogbah is battling the history of high-round picks from Oklahoma State who have failed to live up to expectations in the NFL.

COMPARES TO: Vinny Curry, Philadelphia Eagles - Ogbah is a balanced athlete with the physicality and coachable mentality that can be molded in the NFL, similar to Curry when he entered the league.

IN OUR VIEW: Ogbah is still learning the complexities of the position and lacks elite explosiveness, but he's a balanced athlete for his size and never shuts it down, exhibiting the effort needed to collapse the pocket. He will be a favorite in the building due to his work ethic and make-up.
