Baltimore Ravens 2021 1st Round Pick - Pick 31 - Odafe Jayson Oweh EDGE Penn State


Recommended Posts

And here's the thread to discuss our second 1st round pick -

Quote

HEIGHT: 6'4 7/8"

WEIGHT: 257

POSITIVES

—Secure tackler, which should transition well should he play 3-4 outside linebacker.

—Comfortable using multiple pass-rushing moves in their correct application, such as inside spins and inside swims.

—Knows to play the passing lanes and the quarterback’s line of sight when he can’t get home on a pass rush.

—Playing speed is above-average-to-rare for a player at his position.

—Pursuit is good, which is only intensified by his playing speed.

—Can transition speed into power, instead of relying on winning the edge with speed alone.



NEGATIVES

—Play recognition is poor for a high-end prospect, as he gets lost in backfield action rather than keying blocs by offensive linemen.

—Pad level is high early on in the down for a player who predominantly is in a three-point stance.

—Has difficulty getting off blocks in pass protection.

—Hand placement needs work on second- and third-effort attempts.

—Often gets washed down, in part because of his playing weight.



2020 STATISTICS

38 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 1 pass deflection

NOTES

—Has only played football since his junior year of high school and only played in 20 college football games (eight starts) at Penn State.

—Was named First-Team All-Big Ten despite not recording a sack as a defensive end in 2020.


OVERALL

Jayson Oweh is a ball of clay that needs to be molded, but he has tremendous upside because of his playing speed. He is relatively new to the sport, and it shows on film, but he has traits that are a premium at the position and cannot be coached. The speedy pass-rusher needs to develop a pass-rushing plan and get off of blocks better as a professional, but a team that spends the 2021 season developing him off of the bench could reap massive rewards in the second half of his rookie contract.

hope this is not Tim Williams 2.0

It sure does seem like it, though Tim Williams was productive in college, no?

It's funny though, we replace a guy who didn't get many sacks with....a guy who doesn't get many sacks.

Tim Williams had good sack production and pretty poor-meh testing numbers. He also had off the field issues and was pursuing a rap career, both things that became an issue during his time with the Ravens.

I don't think the two are really comparable. 

Antwan Barnes or Tyus Bowser are probably better players to look at in terms of past Ravens.

Sergio Kindle?

Does Marlon ever disappoint?  He's letting us all know how simple it really is.

And this is a perfect example of Oweh's rush. It's like I mentioned before, guys like Mahomes can't prance around for 8 minutes with sub 4.4 speed huffing them down. This kind of pursuit is demonic. Our blitz packages with Bowser, Campbell, Madubike, Oweh, and even our LBs like Queen are going to be ferocious. SO MUCH SPEED!!

What was Judon's athletic score coming out of college? I don't remember it being anything special 

It wasn't. Everything but his VJ and 40 were trash for his size. 

Showed up on the field too. Burst to disrupt unimpeded plays was there, but nothing else beyond it really. Couldn't consistently bend and COD was lacking.

wasn't Williams supposed to be a really athletic guy coming out also? w/e, sure hope Oweh is a hit.

And Oweh's RAS for comparison

Feel like length should be a big contributor for the “size” field for an edge. Having 34.5” arm length is pretty elite. Then the bench reps to arm length ratio would likely classify as yellow, I’d imagine... vs showing up within the red.
