Overview

Oghobaase is a big body with power to hold the point when he plays with good pad level. He has enough size and strength to be interior linemen in a 4-3 scheme or move to a defensive end position in a 3-4 front. Oghobaase has lots of potential to develop but needs more consistency with his technique (hand use, moves and counters, ability to separate) to become a productive player at the next level. His durability, endurance and natural instincts to react quickly are concerns but he could answer many of those questions this spring as we approach the 2010 draft. Oghobaase is a bit of a project but his length and strength give him a chance to play in the NFL if he can stay healthy.

Analysis

Strengths

Oghobaase has excellent height and good bulk for a defensive lineman. Displays the versatility and intelligence to play either inside for a 4-3 team or defensive end in a 3-4 scheme. Blessed with natural strength and power which he utilizes to make plays in the backfield and bull-rush the pocket.

Weaknesses

Has durability questions after missing the 2005 season with a knee injury and dealing with a foot injury last spring. Inconsistent and sometimes sloppy with his hands. Needs to expanded pass rush moves. Inconsistent reactor, who can be caught out of position. Struggles with his pad level. Endurance is an issue -- can be worn down during longer drives.
