2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke

It is not every day that the Duke Blue Devils have a legitimate first day draft pick on their hands, at least in football. Vince Oghobaase probably could have declared for the NFL draft last year and been a first or second round selection. As a freshman in 2006, Oghobaase started all 12 games for Duke and earned a variety of All-Freshman accolades. Heading into the 2009 campaign, he has not missed a start since. However, a foot injury did keep him out of the lineup for a couple of early games in the 2009 campaign and have made his numbers five games into the 2009 season slightly disappointing. Oghobaase does have a surprising amount of agility, plenty of smarts and skills that cannot be matched by most defensive tackles. It is not like he lacks in strength, but his strength will need to improve before he can dominate the NFL; that is something he has been working on. Duke is doing a decent job this season after losing to Richmond in the first week of the season. They even won their first conference road game since 2003 and with Oghobaase back at full strength, the Blue Devils could be one of the few positive stories in the Atlantic Coast Conference. Oghobaase will get plenty of the credit. 1/17 Update: Duke had some success in the middle of the 2009 campaign, but lost their last four games with bowl eligibility on the line. Part of the problem was Oghobaase's inconsistency following his injury. At times he was dominating and did tally 7.5 tackles-for-loss and 2.5 sacks on the year in just eight games, but his overall lack of production has dropped his draft stock. Oghobaase is still at least a second round talent, but he needs to prove that he can stay consistent during Senior Week.
