Last name is pronounced “niz-EGG-woo.” Was an all-state running back and lettered all four years in track as a Wisconsin prep. Redshirted in 2007. Saw action in 11 games as a reserve defensive lineman and special teams player in ’08, recording six tackles. In 10 games in ’09, registered 10 tackles, three tackles for loss and 3 1/2 sacks with one batted pass. Suffered a right shoulder (minor tear of labrum) injury during camp and missed the first three games. Started all 27 games at DE over his last two seasons — 46-7 1/2-3 with three batted passes and one forced fumble in 13 games ’10 and 38-7-4 1/2 with two pass breakups and one forced fumble in 14 contest in ’11. Led the Badgers in sacks in ’11 and also returned a fumble 33 yards for a touchdown against Oregon in the Rose Bowl.Summary:
High school running back and college defensive end who projects best to a stand-up pass rushing position in the pros, given his length, speed and athletic ability — recorded a 41½-inch vertical, 10-foot, 8-inch broad jump and a 6.84-second 3-cone drill. Closes deceptively well on the ball. Limited instincts — can be slow to trigger and does not always feel pressure. Plays narrow-based against the run and needs to improve his hand use. Could stand to get stronger and learn to play with power. The UW staff hoped for a O’Brien Schofield-like breakout senior season, and while it didn’t materialize, Nzegwu has physical tools to coach up.
