Oli Udoh – OT (Elon)
Before seeing him play a snap, Udoh is a big prospect that stands out from the rest. His measurables at the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine placed him in the upper echelon among offensive linemen. At 6-foot-5, 323 pounds, he has the prototypical size that an NFL team covets in a potential tackle.
Despite looking like an NFL tackle, Udoh has to learn how to play like one. Too many times, Udoh didn’t use the aggression necessary to dispose of his counterparts and his poor footwork and hand usage means he’ll be a major project during the early years of his career.
Although there are plenty of negatives surrounding Udoh’s current game, he does have the intangibles that could make for a long-term left tackle for the Vikings if his development goes smoothly.
He will almost definitely be redshirted either as a reserve or on Minnesota’s practice squad in 2019. But if his play grows into his frame, the Vikings may have gotten a major steal in the sixth round.
