Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about MICHAEL OJEMUDIA: Iowa 6005 200 4.46 Two-year starter, Farmington Hills, MI. Third-team All-Big 10 in 2019. Has ideal size and length for a corner. Played multiple coverage and technique including press and off man along with hard corner Cover 2 deep outside zone. As a press defender is reactive at the snap taking away leverage with alignment. Will also flash an offhand jam on outside release. Solid mirror on route breaks with the speed to stay in phase on vertical routes. As an off defender, changes up pedal with press and bail and lateral shuffle. Effective to maintain cushion. As a hard corner re-routes with two hands. Processes routes and can balance eyes from receiver to quarterback. Solid spacing on high/low routes. Length plays well underneath intermediate routes. Has ball skills for the pass break getting hands inside. Can high point interceptions. Not the most physical tackler and at times struggles to escape blocks. In off coverage can lose the receiver with too big of a cushion. Can be late reacting on a route break at times. Has some desired traits but inconsistency in reactions will have to be addressed. Has kick cover experience and will compete for a backup spot with a chance to develop. Senior Bowl notes: Physical at the line with jam and run. Disciplined initial reactions with consistency maintaining leverage. Flashed a quick break on the ball and showed closing speed chasing. Solid zone defender closing voids. Stayed in phase for the most part in man cover. 2019 stats: 52 T, 1 TFL, 9 PBU, 3 INT. OSR:7/29. Fourth/fifth round. (A-32 1/4, H-8 7/8, VJ-36, SS-4.21).
