Name: David Ojabo - Position: EDGE

Height: 6'5" - Weight: 250 lbs

School: Michigan

Analyst : Lucas VanDenBroek

Wide array of pass rush moves. Effectively used club moves, swim moves and spin moves. He employed great variety in these moves throughout the game and was good at switching it up to keep the tackle guessing. 

Has a great burst off the line. He attacks the tackle quickly. 

Good run defender. Good tackling form and is patient in the run game when he needs to be.

Strength and power. Could afford to add some weight as he seems to play lighter than his 250 and can struggle after initial contact. Needs to work staying on his feet during the rush and not letting his momentum carry him too far. 

Wish he had more speed and flexibility in his hips. Has trouble chasing down the QB from behind in the pocket and can sometimes fail to properly bend around the edge.

David Ojabo is the less heralded pass rusher for the Wolverines, but he still is very talented. He possesses a wide array of pass rush moves. He uses club moves, swim moves and spin moves effectively and is great at switching these up to keep opposing tackles guessing. Ojabo is also very fast off the line and when he attacks the outside shoulder of the tackle he often wins. He is also an asset in the run game. He has good tackling form and is patient when trying to diagnose and make a play on the ball carrier. Ojabo runs into the most problems when he has to try and power through a tackle. He also has trouble chasing down the QB in the pocket on occasion and this can lead to more mobile QBs to be able to climb the pocket and make a throw or get some yards on the run.
