Draft Scout Jeremiah Attaochu News
08/26/14 - OLB Jerry Attaochu was a bit of a project when he was drafted in the second round out of Georgia Tech. With the season opener closing in, he remains a project.
05/12/14 - For the second straight draft, general manager Tom Telesco peddled a fourth-round pick to improve his standing in the second round. And once again it was for a linebacker. Last year it was for an inside linebacker in Manti Te'o and this year it was for an outside one in Jerry Attaochu. "He's a player we had targeted for a long time and actually targeted much higher," Telesco said of the Georgia Tech star. "We just felt we had to go get him. He brings a lot of energy to our defense." Attaochu also brings a strong knowledge of the scheme the Chargers employ. He played in a 3-4 alignment, like the Chargers use, for the Yellow Jackets. - The Sports Xchange
05/12/14 - A closer look at the Chargers' picks: Round 1/50 -- Jerry Attaochu, OLB, 6-3, 252, Georgia Tech...The Chargers surrendered a fourth-round pick to move up seven slots to secure Attaochu. He exited Georgia Tech as its all-time leader with 31.5 sacks and will be asked to find the quarterback for the Chargers. - The Sports Xchange
05/08/14 - 2014 DRAFT SCOUT FINAL TOP 100: 69/6. Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech, 6-3, 252, 4.60, 2-3...A native of Nigeria, Attaochu saw time at inside linebacker, outside linebacker and showed great versatility. At the Senior Bowl, he looked decent rushing from a three-point stance, but seemed lost in space when he played off the line in 4-3 setup. Plays with intensity that sometimes leads him to abandon discipline. Collected 12.5 sacks in 2013 and his career total of 31.5 is a school record. Frankly: Can base his career on pass-rush ability alone as defensive end or OLB in the right scheme. If he manages to become more comfortable and consistent doing other things that will be a plus. - Frank Cooney, NFLDraftScout.com
05/06/14 - Dane Brugler's 2014 NFL Draft Final Top-50: 38. Jeremiah Attaochu OLB, Georgia Tech (6-3, 252, 4.68, SR)...A productive collegiate player, Attaochu has seen time at defensive end and linebacker at Georgia Tech, but projects best as a stand-up rusher in a 3-4 defense. He has the athleticism and determination to make an instant impact. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
