Jayson Oweh Draft Profile
Jayson Oweh has elite speed and get-off from the edge rusher position. He can be a nightmare in the option game, as he as the speed and athleticism to make the play as the option man, or even chase down ball carriers in the open field. Despite thriving as a speed rusher, he has the strength and discipline to stop the run as well.
While he has all of the physical skills, Oweh is still a bit raw as a pass rusher. He doesn’t have the moves to be the top sack leader, yet. Oweh also isn’t super agile, and he isn’t as violent at the point of attack as a defensive coordinator would like.
