Akwasi Owusu-Ansah

School: Indiana-Pa.
Position: CB
Bio: Two year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two seasons as both a cornerback and return specialist. Named to several All-American teams as a senior. Totals last year included 27/2/4 on defense when he also averaged 29.7 yards on 16 kick returns, bringing two back for scores, and 12.5 yards on 22 punt returns with three touchdowns. Struggled through his senior season with a labrum injury which required surgery in March to repair. Junior totals included 14/8/10 on defense.
Positive: Nice sized defensive back with possibilities at cornerback or safety. Effectively diagnoses the action, helps out teammates and easily makes plays facing the action. Strong at the point, defeats blocks and brings ball carriers down on initial contact. Displays a burst of closing speed, gets vertical over receivers and possesses good hands for the interception. Physical in press coverage jamming opponents at the line of scrimmage then bumping them throughout the route. Aggressive defending the run.
Negative: Does not show much in the way of suddenness in his game. Lacks the quick and fluid backpedal, preferring to side shuffle down the field. Does not show the ability to quickly break to the throw. Gives up a lot of receptions in underneath coverage.
Analysis: Owusu-Ansah is a physically gifted prospect that's been very opportunistic on the field breaking up a lot of passes as well as impacting games as a return specialist. He's better suited in a zone defense and is likely to be used at safety yet his primary duties at the next level will be returning punts or kicks. He offers a good amount of upside potential yet needs to really improve the consistency of his fundamentals.
