    The last pick in 2011 draft for the Houston Texans and for the entire 2011 NFL draft. I am carrying out the wish of rmartin65 who couldn't make the very last question thread so here it is.

    DO NOT LIKE.

    I wonder if he is supposed to be a 5 tech or an OLB.

    Either way he won't make it out of camp.

    I like it... we need depth at OLB and Ozougwu was a projected 5th rounder. I don`t know him, but based on his position and projection I like the pick!

    Positives: Quick off the snap. Active with his hands, able to shed blockers when he maintains distance. Effective bull rusher, penetrates the line of scrimmage using strength when inside. Uses lower pad level to keep leverage on the outside. Very strong wrap up and arm tackler due to his upper-body strength. Moves quickly down the line when the play is away from him. Plays with high intensity and will fight hard until the whistle blows. Keeps his head up while fighting off blocks and has good awareness of backfield action. Good awareness when dropping into coverage. Nominated for AFCA All-Good Works Team in 2010.

    Negatives: Only marginal athleticism for his position. Stands straight up after the snap. Does not change directions well, struggles to recover once his momentum takes him in the wrong direction. Lack of size keeps him from playing with a strong base, allowing linemen to knock him off balance and carry him away from the play. Limited repertoire of pass-rush moves; spin move is ineffective and fails to test inside lane. Can be fooled and is slow to react to misdirection. Does not own closing speed to chase down plays from behind.

    Screams PR pick to me. I dont like this one bit. Why take a local player here? Take a player you dont think will sign with you as an UDFA. Bad pick in my opinion. He is a far way away from being an NFL player- small for an OLB, not sudden or explosive, no stats (only 6 TFL and 3 sacks?!). I just dont get it.

    The picks makes sense. He'll be Barwin's back up, while Mark Anderson will be Reed's back up.

    Funny thing is...I didn't laugh. It's totally realistic that it went down like that.

    I have no reaction because he is a 7th rounder and if he even makes the team then that probably makes it a decent pick.
