On film, Mario looks absolutely devastating to offensive lines. For what it's worth, he also looks rail-thin, like a Davion Rogers who has eaten a hamburger in his life. Although he will inevitably sacrifice some speed for an additional 20-30 pounds of mass at the next level, he is explosive enough to remain productive and overcome some of the limitations of his smaller frame.
Despite questions about his size and eventual position, there is one nearly-universal truth supporting Ojemudia: recruits taken nine months before national signing day are hand-selected from coaches' early wish lists. If there is one thing Brady Hoke and Greg Mattison have learned from more than three collective decades coaching the defensive line, it's how to evaluate a defensive end.
Make no mistake, Super Mario 2 is no dream.
