Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Olaseni is fairly new to the game and has not had much playing experience, which limits his instincts. He struggled identifying stunts and different ways a pass rusher could attack him. In the run game, he understood where the ball carrier was and worked to position himself between the defender and the ball.There was noticeable improvement throughout the season, however. He showed an average motor and effort to stay on blocks and find work when he was out in open space.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Olaseni is a very large tackle that has not fully grown into his football playing body yet. His explosiveness was limited compared to the power potential he holds. He struggled with footwork. In the pass game his initial set was limited, but then he would get skinny with his feet on contact which would give rushers an easy pass around the outside. His run game footwork was more of the same as he had the tendency to get skinny with his feet and cross them over if the defender were to counter, leaving him off balanced and in a weak position. He would also have the tendency to have a high pad level and showed limited flexibility and bend.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Olaseni is a very raw player that will need more reps and coaching to fully maximiz his potential. His size and athleticism allows him to currently be average in the run game. His pass protection is limited and needs improvement on the footwork. He has an average punch and hand placement. Fixing the footwork will improve his second level ability so he does not get skinny or crossed up when encountering LB's. His pulling abilities are limited. He does not gain much, if at all, on his initial step. He has an average anchor when he is able to keep his feet under him because he does a good job of punching through the chest and using his size and strength to control defenders.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Initially from England, this was Olaseni's first season as a starter. He was Second Team All-Pac12. He is a large tackle that has not played much football and there will be room for improvement. His 2021 tape showed noticeable improvement from his first start to his last. He initially projects as a backup tackle that will probably have to earn a spot at camp.
