Ourlads' Analysis:

2011 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about BEN IJALANA: Villanova, 6035 317 5.35. Four-year starter who dominated his level of competition. May get his first work in an NFL camp at tackle because of his long arms. We think he’ll be moved inside to guard because of his fringe height for the tackle position. Flashes punch and explosion in the run game. Strong on down blocks to seal the edge. Athletic in his play. Has quick feet to mirror and slide his feet. When he locks out on a defensive end in pass protection, he can snap his hips and dominate with his hands. Plays with a good base and knee bend. Seals the edge in the run game. Still green around the gills. He is just learning how to play the game. Needs work on all the basic techniques and pass protection fundamentals. Was a man playing with boys for the most part. Will need to get used to the speed of the next level to redirect and shift his weight quickly. Must consistently stay square to shadow the pass rusher. Good lateral quickness. No workout due to double sports hernia surgery 12/28/ 10. Second/third round. (A-36, H-10 1/2, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
