2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about JOSHUA EZEUDU:
North Carolina, 6042 308 5.19. Junior entry, three-year starter, Lawrenceville, GA. Earned Honorable Mention All-ACC honors in 2021, second-team in 2020. Because of injuries and inconsistent play throughout the entire line, Ezeudu was moved around often. Throughout his career he played every spot along the line with some of his best tape coming from his snaps at left tackle. His top position will be inside at guard but that kind of versatility can boost his stock a bit. Excels with his hands and displays quick feet, always a good place to start. The natural top-end athletic ability is limited and it shows up when he needs to adjust laterally. His knee bend is inconsistent and there is a recoil in his reaction times because of it. If he can improve some lower body techniques, there are some quality traits to work with. Well-proportioned frame with functional thickness and muscle mass throughout. Thick enough below the knees to support quick footwork, thick enough around the hips to support a strong anchor. Exceptionally strong hands that have a notable death grip when they get inside position. Can grab the chest plate of a defender and stick to it. Keeps his head square to his man with active, light feet. Pays attention to the small details when it comes to his hands and footwork. Comfortable in space. Versatility is a plus, has played every position other than center. Overall bendability looks unnatural and labored. Pad level is too high the further into engagement he gets. Has a hard time adjusting his weight laterally. Tight-hipped, leads to a loss of power and sustainability when he needs to go left and right.
OSR:28/51. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34, H-9 1/2, BP-DNP, 10-1.75).
