Ebenezer Ekuban
Jed Jacobsohn/Allsport
He is a very interesting guy with a high upside. He has a limited football background, grew up in Ghana and is just starting to come into his own. He is a former TE that has only two years of experience at DE. He has great athletic ability and overall quickness and has a natural explosive first step as a pass rusher. He can really flash at times coming off the edge and he has great backside chase speed. He plays hard and will try to finish every play and he does a decent job versus the run despite his size. He has a chance to develop into a solid pass rusher on the NFL level, but the jury is still out about his ability to play the run and even though he plays hard, he is not a real natural player and doesn't always see things as quickly as he should. He is a developmental prospect that may take a little time.
