BJ Ojulari Scouting Report: Summary

One of the key players on LSU's defense the last three years. He's worked with a variety of coaches and coordinators over the course of his career, but Ojulari has had no trouble changing positions or learning a new system of play. He's athletic, has a good first step, is agile and equally dangerous against the pass as well as the run. Ojulari's main weaknesses are his size and his lack of muscle mass. He doesn't have enough arm length to get out of his blocks and he doesn't have enough firepower to attack through the midrange. Overall, this is a player capable of making a difference in his first season with the team that picked him.
