At the NFL level, Anudike-Uzomah is a versatile scheme player. He can play with a hand down or standing up, and because he is a technician, defensive coaches could deploy him both ways as needed. He does have question marks as a run defender, he can be undisciplined, and at times blockers can latch on and move him away from his intended gap. Overall, he has first-round NFL Draft potential.
