Film Analysis on Bills DE Owa Odighizuwa


If you don’t follow along on Twitter, here is some analysis on the Bills new defensive end Owa Odighizuwa.

After watching all of his snaps over the last few seasons, Odighizuwa appears very raw. He uses his length really well, typically winning the hand placement battle on runs, and he has the feet to stack and move laterally on outside runs to hold contain. But he struggles to disengage consistently on inside runs and at the point of attack. Aside from his obvious athleticism, his consistent pass rush move was the straight arm to the chest of opposing tackles. If that move was matched, he had no counters. In fact, he showed very little in terms of any sort of pass rush plan. During one of the games at the end of 2016, the Washington Redskins were content with having their tight ends, Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis, block Odighizuwa 1-on-1. But I did like what I saw from him as a pass dropper in zone blitz situations. He didn’t just drop to a landmark; he found threats and eliminated them as receiving options.
