Scouting Report: Marcus Ogden

Scouting Report: Marcus Ogden

One of our favorite prospects, just like his brother was back in '95, Marcus Ogden is a player we've closely watched the past three years. Like his older brother Jonathan, the little Ogden is a sensational athlete that dominates opponents at the point of attack for the Howard Bison and has a lot of potential for the next level if he applies himself.

Scouting Report:

The Good:  Top-flight athlete that can play left or right tackle as well as center.  Fundamentally sound; bends his knees, sets with a wide base and gets great leverage on opponents.  Strong and jolts opponents at the point, turning them out of the play blocking for the run, also anchoring in pass protection.  Patient, plays with balance and does not overextend into his blocks.  Quick and fluid getting out to the second level.  

The Bad: Late with his hands, must learn to use his blocking angles better and compete for sixty minutes.  Leans on defenders at times and lacks the killer instinct.  More complacent and plays with less urgency then his All Pro sibling Jonathan Ogden.  

The Skinny:
