2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Ugo Chinasa, DE, Oklahoma State
In 2009 Chinasa emerged as a better pass rusher and tallied 6.5 sacks. He also increased his tackle total to 30 and his tackles-for-loss to 9.0. Chinasa also tallied eight quarterback hurries, up from two the previous season. Through ten games in 2010, Chinasa is again putting up solid tackle numbers for a defensive end. He will not likely increase his sack and tackle-for-loss numbers this year, but he does have 3.0 sacks and 5.0 tackles-for-loss and is doing a relatively good job of creating pressure in the backfield.
Chinasa is a versatile end who is quick enough to drop back into coverage and big enough to cause some havoc to the opposing running back and quarterback. However, he does not have enough strength to be a dominating end at the next level. At 6-5, Chinasa has the frame to add some more weight and strength, but he needs to do it without losing his quickness.
2/10 Update: Chinasa ended up on the All-Big 12 Second-Team for the 2010 campaign and, considering all of the talented defensive ends in the conference, that is quite an accomplishment. Yet, the same issues remain when projecting Chinasa to the next level. It is unlikely his strength will increase greatly over the next couple of months and that will likely keep Chinasa waiting until the later rounds before he hears his name called on draft day.
