Olu Fashanu Scouting Report


Olu Fashanu is one of the best athletes in this talented offensive tackle draft class. He has all of the tools to be a long-time starter at tackle in the NFL, but he needs to utilize this full toolbelt more consistently. Fashanu showcases great foot speed and balance, and he is more than capable of anchoring, despite what some critics say. From all measurables and testing, Fashanu is the prototype.


You can tell Olumuyiwa Fashanu is out there thinking about his job and what he needs to do instead of playing instinctive. With more experience, these instincts should develop. He also needs to finish the damn play. And as stated before, there isn’t anything Fashanu is unable to do. However, his consistency and technique are the red flags, as of now. There is zero doubt that he will struggle early in his career, but his ceiling is as high as anyone’s, with the right coaching.

What to Expect From Olu Fashanu in 2024

Olu Fashanu is going to come with some early struggles. The Jets get a player with sky-high upside, but as stated previously, he needs to string together good plays more often. We also need to light a fire under him and hold him accountable when he doesn’t finish plays because if that trend continues, he is going to be on a lot of other players’ highlights.

Fashanu gets put in a position where he doesn’t need to start right away. Instead, he can learn from two good vets and enter the game when there’s injuries.
