04/24/13 - 2013 NFL DRAFT RANG'S GANG: OT: Oday Aboushi, Virginia, 6-6, 308, 5.45...A standout left tackle at Virginia, Aboushi's lack of elite foot quickness and balance was exposed a bit at the Senior Bowl and confirmed with less than stellar numbers at the combine. He plays with the aggression and power I'm looking for at right tackle, however. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
03/28/13 - 2013 Virginia Pro Day: Oday Aboushi might have to move from tackle to guard in NFL...Representatives from 24 NFL teams gathered at Virginia’s pro day on March 13, where 12 players went through a workout indoors on FieldTurf at a brand-new facility on the school’s campus. Oday Aboushi, OT (6-foot-5 3/8, 310 pounds) - Aboushi - who was at the NFL Scouting Combine - ran the 40-yard dash in 5.41 and 5.42 seconds. He performed 21 lifts of 225 pounds on the bench press. He’s strong, but probably will need to be moved inside to play guard in the NFL. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
02/27/13 - 02/27/13 NFL DRAFT SCOUT FALLER: 2. Oday Aboushi, OT, Virginia...Considered one of the top senior offensive tackles in the draft by some, Aboushi has a strong resume as a three-year starter at left tackle for the Cavaliers. However, his tape is average with some holes that could limit his NFL ceiling. It also didn't help his case that Aboushi struggled at the combine during agility and positional drills. He finished near the bottom of every category for offensive linemen, including the bench press (17 reps,t-42nd among offensive linemen), 40-yard dash (5.45, 41st), vertical leap (23 1/2 inches, t-34th), broad jump (8'4", t-26th), 20-yard shuttle (4.84, 30th) and 3-cone drill (7.92, 32nd). Although he still has a place at the next level, Aboushi's lackluster combine workout will knock him a few notches down the board. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/23/13 - Aboushi's best traits -- his physicality and aggression -- make him a better fit on the right side. Here, he consistently controlled BYU defensive end Ezekiel "Ziggy" Ansah, NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated defensive player playing in the Senior Bowl. And this was against the pass. When run blocking, Aboushi's powerful hands and relentlessness consistently knocked defenders off the ball. He also showed better-than-expected quickness in releasing off of double teams and getting to the second level.
"One of the reasons why I play this game is because you get to beat up on people without getting into trouble," Aboushi told NFLDraftScout.com. "I love finishing plays, I love dominating opponents, I love making opponents give up and surrender to your will."
Considering that power football is the recipe that helped Alabama win the national championship and has pushed the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens into the Super Bowl, every team in the league is looking for physically combative blockers with this type of mind-set. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
