He might be best known for his name, but Owamabge Odighizuwa should be recognized for his talent on the field and future in the NFL. An athletic freak out of UCLA, “Diggy” wreaked havoc against offenses this year and put himself in the conversation to be one of the top pass-rushers selected in the 2015 NFL draft.
Odighizuwa recorded six sacks and 11.5 tackles for loss in his senior season, and put on an impressive showing at the 2015 NFL Scouting Combine. He ran a 4.62-second 40-yard dash with a 1.61-second 10-yard split, an impressive time given his 6’3″ height and 267-pound frame.
Odighizuwa played both defensive end and outside linebacker in UCLA’s base 3-4 defense.
