Ogbonnia is a player that wins with his effort. He does a good job to play with a high motor. Has a good first step, then can win around the outside or hesitation move and cut inside. He does a good job at finishing tackles when he makes contact.


Okoronkwo is an average athlete, wont wow you athletically. He is undersized, and does not have great technique. He has stiff hips, which sometimes makes him play to high. He takes a false step sometimes when he is setting up moves.


Okoronkwo has a place in the league as a situational pass rusher. With his motor, he could also contribute on special teams. He is far from a finished product, and is sloppy in his technique. Needs to become more intune with his hands. Because he is far from a finished product, look for Okoronkwo to be selected early on day three.
