I think now may be a good time to start this, we'll need a place for this leading up to the NFL draft.

4. Larry Ogunjobi, DI, Charlotte


Charlotte’s Ogunjobi might be the most underrated player in the entire nation. Despite playing most of his snaps as a nose tackle or 1-tech, Ogunjobi was able to record 19 total pressures, including four sacks, on 252 pass rushing snaps and has a pass-rushing grade of 80.6. However, what really differentiates the 49er’s game from the others is his work against the run. Ogunjobi leads all interior defenders with a run stop percentage of 17.1 percent and 32 defensive stops. Also, he is tied with Houston’s Ed Oliver for the highest run defense grade with 90.2.

Before this season, I saw Larry ranked anywhere from 10 to 15 for best DT draft prospects. I imagine that has only improved with his play this year, could see him going somewhere in rounds 3-4.

He's the kind of player that the combine can really help. Kinda underrated, kinda unknown. Huge upside.  If he goes there and makes an impression, there is no question that his off the field smarts and team leadership experiences might make him jump way up the board of a lot of teams.

NFL Draft Scout has him ranked 8th for DTs.


CBS has him like 120th overall.


If he keeps playing like he has the last few weeks, he will go in the first three rounds.

If DG is too cheap to pay Star & Short, then I hope he burns a pick on Larry.
