Ravens signed Stony Brook OLB Victor Ochi.

Ochi (6'1/246) earned 2015 co-Defensive Player of the Year in the Colonial Athletic Conference, leading the CAA in both tackles for loss (16.5) and sacks (13). An okay-not-great athlete, Ochi ran 4.86 with a 32-inch vertical and 9-foot-11 broad jump at the Combine. Ochi is a short, old-school-Steelers-style outside rusher who beat up on low-level college blockers with power and effort. Ochi shined at the East-West Shrine Game and offers some developmental pass-rush skills.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi "would be a perfect fit at linebacker for the Baltimore Ravens, New York Jets or Arizona Cardinals."

Indeed, Pauline also reported that not only would the Cardinals be a nice fit, they have a visit scheduled with Ochi marked on the schedule. During his Pro Day on Monday, the 6-foot-1, 246-pounder took part in both defensive line and linebacking drills. According to Pauline, he "looked athletic and moved well, but admittedly is a work in progress at linebacker." Back in January, CBS Sports' Rob Rang observed that Ochi "showed terrific effort in pursuit" during the East-West Shrine Game, though we think his game tape for the season actually showed better on him as a player than that Shrine Game week.

Draft insider Tony Pauline reports Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi will visit the Cardinals.

Ochi is a pure power rusher on the outside and will likely draw attention from teams who use a stand up edge rusher on the outside. The Cardinals certainly like those types, see Markus Golden last year, and that type of style and prospect is likely Ochi's ceiling. Athletically, Ochi is below average for his position. He produced a solid, yet unspectacular, Shrine week when compared to his tape.

Per CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang, Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi was "surprisingly stout at the point of attack and he showed terrific effort in pursuit, as well" during Saturday's East-West Shrine Game.

Rang was particularly enamored with Ochi's "disproportionately long arms," which might have too many syllables to catch on in the wider draft vocabulary. Said arms measure 33 1/2". The analyst is also keen on the 6-foot, 245-pounder's "compact frame," which helps him to buckle down against opposing offensive linemen. Rang highlighted one of Ochi's missteps (a fourth-quarter off-sides call), but "even on this mistake, he showed intriguing traits -- generating the same burst as a stand-up rusher as he'd shown previously with his hand in the dirt."

An AFC executive says Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi "has something to him."

"I spoke with our regional scout who said that he was the dude in the locker room and that everyone was afraid of him -- not afraid but listened to what he had to say," the exec said. "I wish he was taller but he's got length, so I'm not worried about that." The edge rusher measures in at 6-foot, 245 pounds. Coming into the event, Rotoworld's Josh Norris wrote that Ochi was the cream of the crop among Shrine Game edge rushers. "Ochi wins with powerful hands, pressing and shedding his opponent to create space," he wrote. "Jason Taylor once told me that pass rushing on the outside isn’t a wrestling match. 'Get on your block and get off of it.' Ochi follows this mantra. His workout later in the process will be worth watching." NFL.com's Lance Zierlein added: "Ochi has been one of the most intriguing guys I've studied on film due to his outstanding strength and aggressiveness at the point of attack."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler hopes Shrine coaches will give Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi reps at linebacker.

The edge rusher checks in at a diminutive 6-foot, 245 pounds, which "showed during practice when he lined up with his hand in the ground as a defensive end," per Brugler. But evaluators want to find a role for Ochi, because everything checks out but his size. "[H]is burst off the ball, aggressive hands and quickness to close also was on display [at Shrine practices], turning a few heads with his movement skills," Brugler wrote. "Ochi needs space to be effective, making him a possible fit in a 3-4 scheme on his feet." Ochi was named Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the CAA last season after posting 13 sacks and 16.5 TFL.

Stony Brook edge rusher Victor Ochi "stands above the rest" among Shrine Game edge rushers, writes Rotoworld's Josh Norris.

"It is common for collegiate pass rushers to attempt to win around blockers. Over and over, even if it fails," Norris wrote. "Ochi wins with powerful hands, pressing and shedding his opponent to create space. Jason Taylor once told me that pass rushing on the outside isn’t a wrestling match. 'Get on your block and get off of it.' Ochi follows this mantra. His workout later in the process will be worth watching." The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder was named Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the CAA last season after logging 13 sacks and 16.5 TFL during the regular season. "Well-built throughout his core with a strong upper body to abuse blockers with his hands," agreed CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. TFY Draft Insider's tweeted the following from the practice field Monday: "[Ochi] 'ooking incredible in d-line drills."

Stony Brook senior edge rusher Victor Ochi accepted an invitation to play in the East-West Shrine Game.

FCS linemen were no match for Ochi. The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder was named Co-Defensive Player of the Year in the CAA last year after posting 13 sacks and 16.5 TFL during the regular season. "Well-built throughout his core with a strong upper body to abuse blockers with his hands," wrote CBS Sports' Dane Brugler. "He launches himself out of his stance and doesn't lose momentum in his rush, dipping and ripping to fend off edge blockers and shave the corner."
Jan 12 - 6:46 PM

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Stony Brook senior edge rusher Victor Ochi "should receive an invitation to the Senior Bowl or another pre-draft all-star game."

"Ochi tracks the ball well to mirror vs. the run and plays with the play speed and motor that makes him tough to contain, especially against FCS competition. His movements lack twitch and he needs to improve his snap anticipation, but Ochi has attracted attention from NFL scouts," Brugler wrote. The small school prospect has recorded five sacks and 12.5 TFL so far this season. Last season, Ochi set career-highs in tackles (57), tackles for loss (16.5), sacks (11.0) and forced fumbles (2), earning first team All-CAA Football honors.

Stony Brook senior edge rusher Victor Ochi "is quick off the snap, fast up the field and plays with a vicious style," notes TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline.

"Entering the year scouts stamped Ochi a day three pick as teams love his pass rushing skill and ability to disrupt the action," Pauline wrote. "He’s relentless in pursuit and attacks opposing ball handlers." The 6-foot-2, 255-pounder has posted five sacks and 12.5 TFL this year. "Ochi now must continue to produce during the second half of the year and I would expect him to receive an invitation to the Shrine Game then the combine," Pauline wrote.

Former Syracuse senior DT Ryan Sloan will play for Stony Brook in 2015.

Sloan cited "a couple of incidents" that led him to decide against returning to Syracuse. Sloan played in 10 games in 2014 but also missed the 2012 season due to a lower body injury. He will be eligible to play immediately.

Stony Brook WR Adrian Coxson visited the Kansas City Chiefs and worked out for the New York Giants and the New York Jets last week.

"I met all of the Jets' coaches," Coxson said. "During the workout, their receivers coach said I got out of the breaks fast, caught the ball well and had a good day. The scouts talked to me and they said they watched my film and noticed a chance in how I got out of the breaks and was moving." In addition, Coxson will attend the Ravens' local prospect day on April 21. Coxson has some Day 3 buzz after posting 40-yard dashes of 4.28 and 4.33 seconds at his Pro Day workout last week. The former blue-chip recruit (signed with Florida, transferred to Maryland and then SBU) caught 43 passes for 664 yards and six touchdowns and was named third-team All-Colonial Athletic Association last season. "I definitely feel like the arrow is pointing up," Coxson said. "People are actually starting to notice my skill set. That's a great feeling."

At least 22 teams were represented at former Stony Brook T Michael Bamiro's workout on Thursday, according to Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

Bamiro was recently ruled ineligible for the 2013 college football season and bypassed both the NFL Draft in April and today's Supplemental Draft. There has been some buzz about the large tackle carrying a third day grade by some evaluators, so expect to see Bamiro get a camp look and potentially make a roster.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt considered former Stony Brook T Michael Bamiro a fourth-round talent.

Bamiro was recently deemed ineligible for the 2013 season and therefore bypassed April's NFL Draft and this Thursday's Supplemental Draft. The offensive lineman has a basketball frame and is still raw in his technique and anchor on first contact, but teams will like his perceived upside. He could be valued higher than the six eligible Supplemental Draft hopefuls.

Stony Brook senior T Michael Bamiro was not allowed to enter the Supplemental Draft after being ruled ineligible for his final collegiate season.

This makes Bamiro a free agent and able to sign with any team. He will reportedly hold a workout for NFL evaluators on July 11. Bamiro's eligibility started at Pittsburgh despite not playing football. He then redshirted his first year at Stony Brook after choosing to pick up the sport. Bamiro did petition for an extra year, but that was obviously denied. He was a three year starter at right tackle and could have a better career than the six prospects eligible for the Supplemental Draft.
