Uyi Osunde Scouting Report

Here is Tony Pauline's scouting report on the Browns recently signed OLB

Name Uyi Osunde
School Connecticut
Year 4Sr
Ht 6-3
Wt 252
40 4.74

Bio: Three year starter that's lined up at both defensive end and linebacker. Totaled 81/22.5/10 as a senior after 76/15.5/9.5 the prior year.

Positives: Athletic defender who makes an enormous amount of plays behind the line of scrimmage. Quickly gets off the ball, plays with forward lean and has a closing burst of speed. Fluid changing direction, collapses laterally and chases the action hard. Reads the action and effective standing up over tackle.

Negatives: Engulfed at the point by larger lineman or easily knocked off balance by the first block.

Analysis: A fine athlete that competes hard, Osunde flashes the ability to create havoc but is not big enough to be an every down lineman in the NFL. Could play on the outside in a three-four system and may eventually be able to put his hand on the ground as he physically matures.
