Overview

Osaisai offers exciting potential as a gunner on special teams. A track athlete who set Stanford's record in the 100 meters in 2005, Osaisai isn't just a track guy in shoulder pads -- at least not on special teams. A three-time All-Pac-10 choice on special teams, Osaisai has rare speed and surprising physicality as a gunner, regularly beating his opponents downfield to down the punt or secure an open-field tackle. Osaisai's speed and tackling ability is less impressive at cornerback, as he only emerged as a full-time starter as a senior and lacks instincts and playmaking skills in coverage.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Rare combination of size and pure speed. ... Set Stanford's school record in the 100 meters when he clocked a time of 10.39 to finish fourth at the 2005 Pan American Games. ... Willing in run support. ... Breaks down well and has developed into a secure tackler. ... Rare speed and tenacity as a special teams gunner. ... Uses his hands well to get off the initial jam and can blow by blockers. ... Can track the ball deep. ... Good balance to break down and secure the bouncing kicked ball. ... Voted team captain. Negatives: Better athlete than football player. ... Limited instincts in coverage. ... While he has excellent straight-line speed, isn't particularly fluid out of his breaks and lacks the burst back to the ball. ... Bites on double-moves because he trusts his speed and can be beaten over the top. ... Poor hands for the interception. Only two interceptions over his career despite 24 passes broken up and 25 starts.
