Summary:

There were two guys that dominated the line of scrimmage at this year’s Senior Bowl. One of them is Josh Uche. Uche at 6’2 241 pounds has decent size and great speed. He has the ability to get around the edge on heavy-footed offensive lineman. Uche reminds me a lot of Noah Spence. He only has outside moves and does not have a secondary move in his arsenal. Offensive lineman were are able to get their hands on him. I can see him best at stunts and loops in blitz packages because he has the speed to run down most mobile quarterbacks. Uche also showed in the Senior Bowl practice that he has the ability to cover tight ends in coverage. Josh Uche is projected to be drafted between the 2nd and 4th round.
