Conference: Western Athletic
40 Time: 4.75
Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 42/6/4, after 64/18.5/7 as a junior. Spent his senior season primarily at defensive tackle.
Positives: Hard-charging college defensive lineman with limited size. Quick off the snap, plays with knee bend, and displays speed in every direction of the field. Immediately alters his angle of attack, fast off the edge or in pursuit from the back side. Gets out to the flanks to make plays, relatively effective in space, and chases around the field, working to get involved in the action.
Negatives: Easily handled at the point of attack by a single blocker. Mostly a first move lineman who must beat opponents off the snap.
Analysis: Ihenacho has been a solid college defender who plays with a great amount of intensity. He possesses enough ability to be tried at outside linebacker and definitely has special teams mentality.
