Bio: 
Three-year starter named Honorable Mention All-Pac-12 as senior with a team-high 115 tackles (six for loss), 2.5 sacks and two interceptions. Made 64 tackles (2.5 for loss) in 2015, missing two games with an acute compartment syndrome injury to his right shin that required an overnight hospital stay. Recorded 70 tackles (one for loss) as a sophomore.
Pos: 
Smallish pursuit linebacker best defending the run. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to get off blocks and moves well laterally. Fluid, displays good change of direction and possesses a closing burst. Effective in pursuit, sells out on the blitz and wraps up tackling.
Neg: 
Easily taken from the action by blocks. Struggles in coverage and cannot stay with running backs downfield.
Analysis: 
Olugbode was a productive college linebacker who also helped out on special teams for Colorado. He has size limitations but could line up in nickel packages on Sunday if he plays well on coverage units.
