I'm still kind of on the fence with this kid... all the reports I hear are good, but I can't find an ounce of video where this kid isn't chasing someone from behind or just out of the play completely... actually I can't find any video where he actually makes a play at all!
But hey... this Front Office has done pretty darn well so far with the draft... so I'll take a wait and see approach on this pick.
From CBS Sportslines:
In 2009, he made 43 plays vs. the opponents' ground games, holding those ball carriers to minus-24 yards, as he made eleven stops for loss, took down eight runners at the line of scrimmage for no gain and produced eight third-down tackles to kill scoring drives. He allowed just four carries for first downs vs. the running game.
The unquestioned leader of the Penn State defense, he led a unit that allowed opponents to gain over 100 yards just seven times in his last 26 contests. Against the pass, three of his four quarterback pressures came on third-down snaps, with two causing interceptions. He also captured quarterbacks in the backfield seven times.
As a senior, Odrick recorded 70 tackles, with 10 stops for losses, five sacks and three blocked kicks. He registered 80 tackles, including 18 behind the line of scrimmage, eight sacks and 60 "pancake blocks" as a two-way tackle during his junior season.
