Adetokunbo Ogundeji DE Notre Dame Draft Profile

Atlanta Falcons Drafted: 2021: ROUND: 5 - Pick Number: 182 (ATL)
Strengths
  • Flashes upper-body strength to rip and has the punch to push through interior linemen on stunts and twists.
  • Plays with leverage at the point of attack whether inside or outside. Keeps eyes in the backfield when inside; moves linemen to either side with strong hands.
  • He wins with all-out hustle, second and third effort and will contribute in the NFL.
  • Has fluid footwork to redirect, reverse momentum and close with a burst. Regularly first off the ball with good snap anticipation.
  • Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
Weaknesses
  • He doesn't have the elite quickness or flexibility to flatten off the edge against NFL blockers and might have to add bulk to be a 3-4 defense five-technique, or strong-side end in a 4-3.
  • Not a natural bender and lacks fluid change-of-direction ability. Plays with inconsistent pad level and is often knocked backward off the snap.
  • Lacks overpowering strength and can stick to blocks. Lacks explosive speed to bend and flatten off the corner with stiff hips and ankles. Not flexible or fluid.
  • Hands aren't strong or active enough to disengage consistently. Gets good push, but will not bull rush NFL tackles.
  • Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
