 Draft Scout Jeremiah Attaochu News
04/21/14 - Five players who should be on Philadelphia's draft radar: OLB Jeremiah Attaochu, Georgia Tech: One could argue that the Eagles biggest need on draft weekend is an impact pass rusher and Attaochu fits the bill. He has experience in both a 3-4 and 4-3, rushing from a two and three point stance in college, and holds the Georgia Tech record for career sacks (31.5). Attaochu is very active and disruptive, using his athleticism, motor and instincts to win off the edge, collapsing inside or whatever way possible. He's still unrefined in several areas, but has some untapped potential, just turning 21 years old and not playing the sport until high school. If Attaochu is still around in the second round, the Eagles shouldn't pass on him. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
04/15/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Linebackers: Jeremiah Attaochu, Georgia Tech, 6-3, 252, 4.68, 2...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, The Sports Xchange
04/03/14 - 2014 NFL Draft: Week 4 Pro Days takeaways...4. Healthy and movin' up. Due to a partially torn hamstring, Georgia Tech pass rusher Jeremiah Attaochu didn't work out at the NFL combine last month, but was good-to-go on Friday for Georgia Tech's pro day. And, as expected, he was impressive. Attaochu ran his 40-yard dash times in the late 4.5, early 4.6 range with a 37.5-inch vertical jump, 4.64 short shuttle and 7.28 three cone drill. His 1.55 10-yard split would have ranked him tops among all linebackers at the combine.

Attaochu, who was born in Nigeria before moving to the Washington, D.C., area, set the Georgia Tech all-time record for career sacks (31.5) and continues to be one of the more underrated prospects in this class. He's extremely active, using his athleticism, motor and heady instincts to win off the edge, collapse inside or find the quarterback whichever way possible. Attaochu is still unrefined in some areas, something he also showed during his pro day performance, but there is definitely some untapped potential there as a 21-yeard old who didn't start playing football until high school. In the late first or early second round, Attaochu is going to make a team that implements a 3-4 defense very happy. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com

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
