Bright Ugwoegbu

#1 Oregon State University, Outside Linebacker (Redshirt Junior)
Height: 6'0        Weight: 205
Grade: 3.80        Round: UDFA

Bright Ugwoegbu was a 3 star safety coming to Oregon State. He sat out his true freshman season and transitioned to linebacker for his redshirt freshman season. He flashed as an NFL prospect as a sophomore, posting 11 TFL with 5.5 sacks. He had one more tackle as a junior but only finished with 4.5 TFL and 1.5 sacks. Ugwoegbu is an in betweener in the NFL; with an NFL weight room he can obtain manageable size for an outside linebacker, although he's simply too slow to play on the second level in the NFL. He was timed at 4.95-4.97 at his pro day, which won't do him any favours come the supplemental draft.
