Giants take UCLA defensive end Odighizuwa in 3rd round

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) The New York Giants went to work on their defense for the second straight round, talking UCLA edge rusher Owamagbe Odighizuwa in the third round of the NFL Draft on Friday night. Odighizuwa is a very athletic defensive end, the type of player that general manager Jerry Reese loves to draft. New York did not have a need at the end spot, but Odighizuwa had...

Potential NFL Draft steal Owamagbe Odighizuwa

His name may be hard to pronounce, but, for offensive linemen trying to contain Owamagbe Odighizuwa (owa MAH bay O DIGGY zoo wah) throughout his career would tell you the former UCLA star end/linebacker is infinitely more tougher. The well spoken Owa (for short) has all of the intangibles to be a great one, with a decorated NFL coordinator giving his version of the 6’3″ 267 pound...

Steel City Blitz Steelers Mock 3.0

1. Owamagbe Odighizuwa, OLB, UCLA I’m assuming that there’s an early run on linebackers and that Beasley, Ray, Fowler, Williams, and Dupree are off the board.
