Reading Time: 2 minutes.
- Height: 6’4”
- Weight 255 lbs
- College: Kansas State
- Year: Junior
- Position: Edge
- Has really good size and a really thick frame
- Has extremely long arms which makes him a really strong tackler
- Combines strength and speed to be able to win in many different ways
- Is explosive out of his stance
- He is that strong he can win with pure power
- Has good pass-rush moves. Can display swim moves and can spin out of trouble but needs to use them more frequently
- Great motor. Never stops working and does a lot of the dirty work
- Is extremely disruptive. Even when his pass rush doesn’t get home he is able to influence the play and keep tackles thinking
- A player who thrives on aggressive, merciless contact.
- Needs to work on his hand placement. Needs to attack shoulders and in half rather than trying to bowl the opponent over by attacking their chest with power
- Needs to have better anticipation. Isn’t very reactive off the snap and it means that tackles can often get a step on him
- He can get locked up at times. He needs to be able to let go and use his strength leverage to compete.
- Lacks a lot of countermoves
- Isn’t a bendy or flexible edge defender and that is reflected in his play style.
Felix Anudike-Uzomah is coming off a brilliant year with Kansas State which saw them become Big-12 champions. Andudike-Uzomah is a draft prospect who, if he lands on the right team, could be really successful. But, he will need to be utilised in the right way. His profile is one that is based on strength and power and a system where he can be used as a true DE would be beneficial for him. If he can be coached to be better at recognition, staying more alert and being more precise, he has a high ceiling to work with.
