Overview:

Ebukam had a very productive career at Eastern Washington, where he played in 53 career games, had 188 tackles, an amazing 38.0 for loss, and 24.0 sacks, proving to be a sack machine. He has good size, he has great speed, is very experienced, is a good pass rusher, and a dynamic play maker on defense. He also gets good pressure on the quarterback, and he does a good job of getting through the offensive line in pursuit of the quarterback. On the other side, he does have problems with bigger offensive lineman at times, but that does not hurt his game, and some may say his production is a product of playing at Eastern Washington. Despite this, Ebukam has shown he is a capable pass rusher against top level opponents, like against Washington State in 2016, which leads me to believe he is deserving of being a day 3 pick, somewhere in the mid round range, and being a key special teams player, and a rotational player.
