Oday Aboushi: Video Highlights for Former Virginia OT
Oday Aboushi is a 6'5'', 308-pound offensive tackle who was a three-year starter at Virginia.
The last two seasons, he was the full-time left tackle for the Cavaliers. In 2011, his play earned second-team All-ACC honors, and he was a first-team All-ACC selection in 2012.
Here are some of the top plays from Oday Aboushi's collegiate career.
Screen Block vs. North Carolina in 2012
On this play, Aboushi dropped back as a pass-blocker and got underneath the North Carolina defender. As the pass went to the left flat, Aboushi did a nice job pivoting his block back to the inside, which allowed Perry Jones to pick up the first down.
Block on Inside Blitz vs. Georgia Tech
At the snap, there was no defender for Aboushi to block. He showed his awareness by looking to the inside of the offensive line. At the perfect time, Aboushi picked up a linebacker blitzing up the middle.
Two-Level Block vs. North Carolina in 2012
Aboushi executed an NFL-caliber block on this play. Upon the snap, he down blocked on the North Carolina defensive lineman and instantly got to the second level to take care of the inside linebacker.
The play didn't net a huge gain, but the blocking by Aboushi was superb.
Pass-Block vs. Georgia Tech in 2012
On this play, Aboushi implemented a traditional, pass-blocking kick slide and engaged with the Georgia Tech defensive end. He did a fine job mirroring as the Yellow Jackets edge-rusher tried to work back to the inside.
Pass-Block on Brandon Jenkins vs. Florida State in 2011
Brandon Jenkins has a future in the NFL as a pass-rusher, and Aboushi handled him well on this play despite being initially knocked back.
The Virginia lineman was stunned, but he regained his composure and locked on to Jenkins before he could put legitimate pressure on the quarterback.
It was a great demonstration of Aboushi's ability to recover.
