Overview:

Odenigbo had a very nice career at Northwestern, appearing in 49 career games, where he had 61 tackles, 26.5 for loss, and 23.5 sacks. He has good edge rush size, he is very experienced, he is a good pass rusher, and gets good pressure on the quarterback. He can also play defensive end, and outside linebacker, he is a hard hitter, and a sure fire tackler. He is a bit too light to be a full time defensive end in the NFL, he does not have elite edge rush speed, but that does not hurt his game, and he missed all but 1 game in 2012 due to a shoulder injury. With that said, I view Odenigbo as a late day 3 pick.
