Pos: 
Hard-working college pass rusher with poor size and speed numbers. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and keeps his feet moving. Fluid when asked to twist and stunt, easily changes direction and shows ability standing over tackle. Strong for his size, moves well in every direction of the field and wraps up tackling. Shows ability to rush the passer and can bend off the edge. Fights with his hands and rarely off his feet.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and was controlled by a single blocker at the small-school level. Possesses minimal speed and won’t be effective in pursuit or outside the box.
Analysis: 
Onuoha is a hard-working small-school prospect who gets the most from his ability, but he lacks the computer numbers for the next level. He comes with a special-teams mentality, and if he plays well on coverage units, he could be kept on a roster as an eighth defensive lineman.
