Scouting Report: Julian Okwara
School: Notre Dame Position: Defensive Tackle/ Outside Linebacker Class: Senior Height: 6’5″ Weight: 240 Projected Draft Round: 2-4
A speed rusher that excels on the edge and in space where he can use his athleticism to dominate. Has an excellent jump off of the snap, and is most productive when he gets on the outside of his blocker, using his balance, speed, and bend to get around and to the QB. Looks very comfortable in coverage and in space, and will be looked at very closely as an OLB in a 3-4. Has very good length, but if he stays on the edge in a 4-3 will need to add some bulk to his frame to stand up against the run. Thrives with speed for now, but needs to develop more technique.
