Ourlads' Profile:

2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DUKE EJIOFOR: Wake Forest, 6033 264 4.75. Two-year starter and two-time all-conference mention from Houston, TX. Lines up in the Demon Deacons’ 4-3 defense as a defensive end, but will slide inside as a 3-technique on passing downs. Versatility is what helps him make plays and upgrades his value for the next level. Long arms. Quick off the ball with heavy hands and strong base. Attacks the edge of a blocker and can do a lot of damage between the tackles. Good short area quickness and use of hands. Instinctive enough to locate the ball. No matter where he lines up he has a chance to be a match-up problem for the blocker. Makes several plays by pursuing on the backside with a solid effort and a good motor. Plays in a four point stance which hinders his get-off at times. Needs to improve his upfield consistency. Rarely wins off the snap. Must improve his ability to punch, separate, counter move, and disengage from the blocker. A backup who may eventually start with developmental time. 2017 stats: 43 T, 16.5 TFL, 6.5 sacks, 1 PBU, 9 QBH, 2 FF. Medical exclusion at Combine, right shoulder. Third/fourth round. (A-34 7/8, H-9 3/4, BP-DNP, 10-DNP).
