Prince Tega Wanogho (Auburn)
- Height: 6-foot-5 | Weight: 308 pounds
Although he is still very raw, Prince Tega Wanogho has a tremendous amount of upside and could be a good value selection for the Minnesota Vikings.
The imposing figure needs some refinement to his game in order to maximize his potential. But his athleticism is incredibly impressive and he stood out considerably during the evaluation process.
Wanogho has a dominant length and the mobility to match. This makes him a nightmare to overcome on passing downs that could see the player become a starting left tackle at the NFL level in the not-too-distant future.
His technique has also shown improvement. But there is much work still to be done in this particular area of his game. That being said, Wanogho’s skill-set is going to ensure he is taken in the first three rounds later this month.
The tackle needs to up his work in the weight room to build the additional strength needed to cope with the rigors of the NFL. There is a lot to like about his long-term fortunes. But the Vikings need help right now if they are to achieve their objective of making a Super Bowl with their current roster.
Drafting someone like Wanogho may be more feasible if they manage to acquire Trent Williams. Opting to take an interior lineman and keep Riley Reiff at left tackle for one more season would also give the Auburn product a chance to adjust to the next level at his own pace.
