Can be engulfed easily at times by longer-armed blockers who can get into his frame initially and he will struggle to shed and quickly find the football. Is a limited athlete who lacks range in pursuit and isn't real graceful when asked to slip blocks and make plays away from his frame. Has only one gear and isn't going to find the football much sideline-to-sideline.
Is a limited athlete in coverage, as well, is tight in the hips, lacks range in his drop and doesn't exhibit the ability to close on the football in zone. Really struggles to come out of his breaks and lacks the kind of speed to be able to turn and run with NFL-caliber tight ends down the seam. Possesses only average instincts and has his fair share of hits/misses when asked to quickly locate the football in both the run and pass game.
Impression: Might have a chance as a jack linebacker in a 3-4 scheme but isn't overly physical on contact and his lack of athleticism/range are really going to limit his chances of making an NFL roster."
Positive: One-time highly rated run defending linebacker whose game has regressed the past two seasons. Breaks down well, strong at the point, and stacks well against the run. Displays good movement skills and athleticism and gets depth on pass drops. Explosive at the point, pursues the action with speed, and flashes on the scene. Displays skill in zone coverage and the ability to turn his hips and run with opponents down the field.
Negative: Does not look like he plays with a lot of intensity. Rarely uses his hands to protect himself. Marginally instinctive and often gets caught out of position.
Analysis: After his first two years at Michigan, Ezeh looked like a big-time linebacker prospect. He's run hot and cold the past two years and at times looks like he'd rather be elsewhere than on the football field. Ezeh has the size and skill to be a solid middle or inside the linebacker at the next level if he ever gets his game back on track."
He's more quick than fast and while that works between the tackles, he struggles with pass coverage. Lacks natural hip fluidity and will struggle in open space. A great wrap up tackler who hits with ferocity. Plays with fast instincts. Ezeh has adequate size for the position, but needs to run with more arm violence (churning of the arms) in order to generate more speed. Understands both the 3-4 and 4-3 principles of the inside linebacker position as he has played in both schemes while at Michigan. Very consistent performer while at Michigan and was a Butkus Award semifinalist in 2009.
Ezeh projects as a 3rd round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft."
