BJ Ojulari - Edge LSU

BJ 16x9


BJ Ojulari is the brother of Azeez Ojulari, who starred as a pass rusher for Georgia before landing with the New York Giants as a second-round pick in 2021. BJ made his own name as a top national recruit out of Georgia's Marietta High School. He enrolled at LSU a semester early so he could play as a true freshman; he started once in 10 appearances in 2020 (16 tackles, five for loss with four sacks). Olujari led the Tigers with seven sacks among his 55 total stops, 11.5 for loss, in 13 games with 12 starts as a sophomore. He ascended to first-team All-SEC status in 2022, starting 11 games (58 tackles, 8.5 for loss with 5.5 sacks) and missing two early-season games with a knee injury. He opted out of the team's bowl game.

Scouting Report

Stand-up rush linebacker with upside as a pass rusher but inconsistent effort stopping the run. Ojulari is bendy as an edge rusher and will wreak substantially more pocket havoc once he builds a more complete rush plan. He plays contain as a run defender and has the pursuit speed to spill the run wide or make tackles in space, but needs to play with consistent effort on all run snaps. B.J. Ojulari possesses all the tools necessary to start for an NFL team once he adds a bit more polish to his game.
