Scouting Report-When I am re-born I'd like to be built like Odrick. He's tall with long arms and very low body fat for a guy around 308 pounds. And by the looks of him, he could probably pack on 10 or 12 more good pounds without much problem. This is a nice problem to have because this would allow him more freedom to play in multiple schemes in the NFL. As it stands now, he looks to be either a 3-4 DE prospect or a 4-3 under tackle, working 1 gap, probably in a 3 technique, with a big 1 technique next to him. The reason for this is he's a natural penetrator and a guy who works hard to get up field and make plays in the backfield. The problem is he gets up high at times and gives up his leverage and for a kid this tall, it means teams can run his way, in hopes of him washing himself out of position. He's a very coachable player, and you have to love the fact he never takes plays off, is a hard worker and shows some real upside.

Draft Status-A lot like Pittsburgh Steeler first round pick from 2009 Ziggy Hood, Odrick seems to be really moving up draft boards, and for many of the same reasons. Even is a stacked top of the defensive tackle class, Odrick appears to be poised to find his way into the first round, especially considering the fact he projects into either the 3-4 or 4-3 scheme. Me, I think where he differs from Hood is, he's more of a pure 4-3 interior player, and Hood more of a 5 technique end.

Final Analysis-Odrick is the kind of player fans and coaches love to have on their team. His technique is sound. He's quick and athletic, uses his hands well, and does a great job in pursuit. Odrick is a smart and disruptive player who's contributions may not always show up in the box score, but he can certainly make a team better. On the downside, I want to see him play a little lower and I really want to see him hit the weights and get bigger and stronger, to do better in obvious run downs.

Reminds me of: Tony Brown, DT Tennessee Titans-Odrick is a bigger player than Brown and has more upside, but if you want a comparison of what Odrick does well, you can see a lot of the same things in Brown.
