Ourlads' Profile:

2019 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about EMEKE EGBULE: Houston, 6017 245 4.65. Two year starter from Galena Park, TX. Good size and length for a linebacker to go with a versatile skill set. Plays on the edge in an upright stance and with experience over a tight end, covering down on a slot or backed off in space. Plays with a motor and can get upfield with a quick first step. Explosive attacking tight ends on the line with a quick punch. Bends his knees and sheds on the move. Can work off a block inside or out. Can run and chase. Smooth change of direction chasing downhill or laterally. Solid edge rush tools with a burst to close. Can bend around the corner versus a tackle and squeeze with fluid hips to the quarterback. Shoots his hands to stun blocker and work underneath. Effective on stunts working to the inside. Has coverage aptitude for zone drops and can reroute a slot off the line getting into coverage. Pursuit angles can be off chasing across the field or coming from space. As a pass rusher needs to develop more than shooting the hands and working the edge. He is  raw in technique but his athletic ability will be attractive to a team looking for a traditional outside linebacker that can rush the passer. Should do well on special teams while he develops. 2018 stats: 69 T, 5.5 TFL, 2 sacks, 5 PBU, 9 QBH, 2 FF, 2 FR (1 TD), 2 INT. Edge speed:left 2.21, right 2.10. OSR:10/12. Seventh round/PFA. (A-33, H-9 1/4, BP-20, SS-4.38).
