Ogunbowale had a nice career at Wisconsin, where he played in 47 games, had 308 rushing attempts, for 1470 rushing yards, 11 rushing touchdowns, 54 receptions, for 451 receiving yards, and 2 receiving touchdowns. He has good size, he also has good vision, he has good speed, he is a tough runner, he is a good pass catching back, and he is tough to take down. He also is an explosive play maker, he has a nice quick burst, he makes defenders miss, and he breaks tackles with ease. The only issues I see are, that he is not the best blocking back, and he tends to get stuffed at times. With that said, I see Ogunbowale as a day 3 pick at best, but more than likely he will end up being undrafted.
