Draft Scout Jeremiah Attaochu News
01/22/14 - 2014 Senior Bowl Wednesday: OLBs Attaochu, Van Noy step up to pressure...A handful of under-the-radar defenders helped their cause during this morning's practice. It was a pair of well-known linebackers -- Georgia Tech's Jeremiah Attaochu and BYU's Kyle Van Noy -- who stood out this afternoon. Attaochu starred as a pass rusher with the Yellow Jackets, lining up as a stand-up outside linebacker and occasionally attacking the edge as a defensive end. In Mobile, however, the Jaguars' coaches have asked him to play virtually all over the field, including at inside linebacker, outside linebacker and rush from a three-point stance. Not surprisingly, Attaochu showed his greatest comfort when rushing the quarterback, demonstrating burst, agility and a powerful slap-and-sidestep to get past would-be blockers.
Asked to play off the line of scrimmage as a traditional strongside linebacker in the Jaguars' 4-3 alignment, however, Attaochu also has shown improved recognition and gap integrity against the run, as well as patience when dropping back into coverage. On Monday, Attaochu looked like a fish out of water dropping back. Today, when running backs came into his zone, Attaochu ran with them, closing as the ball arrived and showing quick hands to rip at the ball as it arrived. Scouts knew the 6-foot-3, 253-pound Attoachu was athletic; this week he's also shown football intelligence and work ethic. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
12/30/13 - PLAYERS TO WATCH: Georgia Tech DE Jeremiah Attaouchu has been a terror for opposing offenses this season. He was on the Bronco Nagurski Trophy preseason watch list and has been almost impossible to block on the edge, ending the regular season with 12 sacks and recording 15.5 tackles for losses. Ole Miss' offensive line is decent, but it's had its problems at times keeping defenders out of the backfield. The Rebels have allowed 25 sacks, tied for the fourth-most in the SEC, and Attaouchu will have his chances to disrupt Wallace and the Rebels' passing game. - The Sports Xchange
