Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about MICHAEL ONWENU: Michigan, 6025 344 5.35. Three-year starter, Detroit, MI. Earned third-team All Big 10 honors in 2018. Onwenu is a brute physical force that will get movement off the ball in the running game, and root himself into the ground against the bull rush. He has as much thickness and length that one can find at the position. The tools and slashes of dominance are there when asked to adjust quickly to the left or right. If the lateral movement and overall reaction speed can be improved, he has starter-caliber traits and techniques. Has plus-size everywhere. Wide as an aircraft carrier with long arms and huge hands. Just a standout-large human being in a crowd full of big men. Creates heavy contact with his punch. Accurate hands that he will get, and keep, inside. Replaces his hands while keeping his feet active. Gets a lot of steps in on every play. Makes sure he steps on every blade of grass within his area. Stout against the bull rush. Gets movement off the ball in the running game. Above average quickness to pull out of his stance and move laterally. Will reach his point before the ball carrier. Shrine Bowl Notes** The big man does an excellent job of climbing to the second level of the defense. Powerful and stout. Rare foot quickness for a big man. Long arms and big powerful hands. Controls his target with his hand strength so he doesn’t slide off. Strong hand grip. Was all about focus and work during the week. No Combine workout. Third/fourth round. (A-34 1/2, H-10 7/8, BP-26, 10-DNP).
