2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ROMEO OKWARA: Notre Dame, 6045 265 4.87. Two-year starter from Charlotte, NC. A high effort highly motivated athlete with long arms and big hands. Good first step quickness to get off the ball. May project as a nickel pass rusher for some teams. Closes down the edge with good balance and the ability to bend. A physical and aggressive tackler who will run through a ball carrier. Has the strength and flexibility to leverage an offensive tackle when pushing the pocket. Another versatile and athletic end/outside linebacker who is scheme diverse in the 4-3 front as an end or in the 3-4 as an outside linebacker. A developmental talent who had a strong senior year. Has the size and athletic ability to cover the tight end on the goal-line. An ascending talent. East-West Shrine notes: Long arms and big hands plus a frame to gain weight. Played left end. Was the Irish’ sack leader the past two years. Can get up the field quickly. Needs to refine shed technique with hands. 2015 stats: 49 T, 13.5 TFL, 9 sacks, 7 QBH, 1 FF, 1 blocked kick.
