Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about DJ WONNUM: South Carolina, 6045 258 4.75. Two-and-a-half year starter, Stone Mountain, GA. Second-team All- SEC selection. Junior season was limited to five starts with an ankle injury. Great football and personal character, named a team captain as a sophomore. He has length, size, and competitive toughness but lacks overall pass rush value. Good height, weight and length. Long arms. Good frontside defender with solid play strength who can set a hard edge. Plays with a very high motor in backside pursuit and as a pass rusher, never relenting on the play. Below average athletic ability. Marginal pass rush value. Lacks upfield burst to threaten the edge. Tight hips when turning the corner leads to him getting pushed past the quarterback. Ineffective bull rush. 2019 stats: 37 T, 9.5 TFL, 4.5 sacks, 3 QBH, 1 FF, 1 BK, 1 INT. Edge speed:left 1.94, right 2.15. OSR:5/25. Fifth/sixth round. (A-34 1/8, H-10 1/2, BP-20, 10-1.70).
