Overview:

Obi Ezeh is a disappointing LB prospect. After his great sophomore year I thought he had some potential but he has yet to improve or even come close to matching those numbers. He’s not a very good athlete and for his size and experience he is an awful run defender and still makes too many mistakes. He may not have a true position at the next level. 3-4 ILB would seem logical but he would have a tough time shedding blocks inside. He lacks the range to be an OLB and his upside is at best a special team player. I think it will be very hard for him to make an NFL teams roster.
