BIO: First team all-conference selection last season after totaling 40/9.5/8 which came off the heels of a breakout campaign as a junior when he posted 42/4/10.
POSITIVES: Athletic defensive end that makes a lot of plays up the field. Agile, quickly alters his angle of attack and immediately redirects the ball handler. Breaks down well and rarely off his feet. Top athlete with terrific range and the ability to make plays in all directions. Flashes explosion, forceful and wedges between blocks. Can drop off the line and effectively play in space.
NEGATIVES: Has a thin build and handled at the point or knocked off the ball by opposing fullbacks. Lacked a sense of urgency last season and unwilling to make plays if the ball was not in his immediate vicinity.
ANALYSIS: An outstanding pass rusher that can be tough to handle, Odom possesses the physical abilities that warrant a first-round selection. Yet with that he is not a prospect that goes hard on every snap. Should have stayed in school one more season and needs to quickly pick up the tempo in almost every aspect.
