Summary: I really like Odrick as a prospect if teams view him as coachable. If he adds some strength, he has a lot of potential as a 3-4 defensive end, or 5-technique. However, he will NOT fit every 4-3 scheme. His bread and butter is getting up the field using his quickness and hands. Teams like Buffalo, Minnesota, and Indianapolis might be interested. Odrick is a second-round prospect, but a darkhorse for the first round.
Player Comparison: Tony Brown. Brown is a one-gap penetrator in Tennessee; he is very quick, has great hands, but struggles when teams run at him.
Honestly 49ers need so much work, might as well turn the 2 pck into multiple. If they don't I would love to see allen from bama because the 49ers are invested in two young ends. I think switching to a 4-3 will help armstead and buckner since they are so lengthy. Pair those two up with a nose tackle who will attract attention from a guard and make armstead and buckner face one on once matchups will be helpful for them. If not allen I would love to see a trade back get jabrill peppers and have him as a tampa 2 linebacker/safety (Urlacher anyone?). have a new kind of version of the 4-4 defense where it would have 3 linebackers and 3 safeties. one for pass one to help the rush, and the other as a multi function player.
