Omenihu is an impressive looking human. He actually looks a little like Danielle Hunter out on the field with his big body and long gangly limbs. His official measurements from the Combine had him being 6-foot-5 and 280 pounds. He also had 36-inch arms and hands that were measured at 9 and 3/8 inches. That’s a large man right there.

Dre’Mont Jones is also a big old dude. At the Combine, he measured in at 6-foot-3 and 281 pounds. He had 33 and 3/4 inch arms and his hands were a bit bigger than Omenihu’s at 9 and 5/8 inches. The tape doesn’t lie, Omenhiu is a much bigger fella.

Advantage: Omenihu


For a couple of big guys, these defensive tackles move quite well. Both are quick off the snap and can close in on a quarterback in a hurry. They show relentless pursuit and can move well laterally. The deciding factor here will be the athletic tests at the Combine.

Omenihu ran a 4.92 40-yard dash, with a 36.5-inch vertical jump, a 115-inch broad jump, 7.48 seconds in the 3-cone drill, and he ran the 20-yard shuttle in 4.36 seconds. Those are impressive numbers for a man who is sasquatch-sized.

Dre’Mont Jones’ athletic numbers looked like this, 5.12 seconds in the 40-yard dash, 31.5-inch vertical jump, 110-inch broad jump, 7.71 seconds in the 3-Cone Drill, and a 4.53-second 20-yard shuttle. While Jones’ numbers are very good, Omenihu’s athletic ability is on another level.

Advantage: Omenihu


This won’t take long. Neither one of these guys opted to bench at the Combine, so we have nothing concrete to compare their power to. That being said, both of these guys demonstrate good power on tape, fighting off blocks, and plowing over their man or pushing him into the backfield. But without that determining test, we can’t pick a winner here.

Advantage: Push
