Read NFL.com's scouting report of UNC offensive lineman Joshua Ezeudu, who was drafted with the 67th pick:

SUMMARY

Ezeudu (pronounced eh-ZOO-do) played in one game as a reserve his first year on campus but remained off the field the rest of the year to retain eligibility. He then started seven of 13 appearances as a redshirt freshman the next season (two at left tackle, five at left guard). Ezeudu missed the first two games of 2020 with a lower-body injury but still played well enough in his 10 starts (three at right tackle, seven at left guard) to receive third-team All-ACC accolades from league coaches. He was an honorable mention all-conference pick in 2021, starting nine games at left guard and two at left tackle.

STRENGTHS

  • Big, broad frame with plus athleticism.
  • Projects as guard but can play tackle in a pinch.
  • Rapid-fire foot chop into and through the block.
  • Size creates momentum to displace down block.
  • Keeps eyes on second-level target during combo blocks.
  • Breezy skip pulls with athleticism to connect in space.
  • Feints a punch to draw defender's hands early.
  • Pass protection should benefit from background as a tackle.
  • Well-prepared to identify and eliminate twists.
  • Loose hips bolster recovery when beaten by rush.
