Arizona Cardinals draft profile: DE Emmanuel Ogbah
The Arizona Cardinals select 29th in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft
As we have reached April, the 2016 NFL Draft is getting closer and closer. The Arizona Cardinals select 29th in the first round. We now have just four weeks until the big night in Chicago.
Here is a look at the draft profile of defensive end Emmanuel Ogbah out of Oklahoma State. While the Cardinals went and traded for Chandler Jones last month, that doesn’t mean rule out another defensive end being drafted high.
Upside: Cbssports.com says he already has the look of an NFL defensive lineman. He’s powerful and can knock blockers back with authority.
Downside: He is known to work hard but the knock on Ogbah is that he is still learning how difficult the position can be. The scouting report on him likes his balance but not his explosiveness or lack thereof. Still he is highly thought of by the draft experts.
What others are saying:
So the Cardinals have had a good look at Ogbah now. He’s the only defensive end the Cardinals gave a private workout to or at least the only one that was widely reported. General manager Steve Keim doesn’t waste time on players he doesn’t think would be a fit.
Now it’s up to the draft Gods to decide if Ogbah is still around at 29. The bigger question is if both QB Paxton Lynch and Ogbah are still available at 29, which one do you go with?
