    Default Ben Ijalana Scouting Report OT



    Height: 64
    Weight: 320
    College: Villanova
    40 Time: 5.35
    Class: Senior
    Stock: Up
    Projected: 2nd Round
    Overview:
    Ben Ijalana might be this years best small school player. He has absolutely dominated at Villanova and has a lot of potential. He has great footwork and can mirror pass-rushers on the edge. Hes got a good, natural knee bend as well. He gets a great push in the run game because hes strong and drives his feet. He still needs to work on his overall technique and there are some questions about where he will play in the NFL. He has the potential to play LT, so that alone puts him pretty high on teams draft boards.

    Maybe worth trading up in the 2nd round to get him, not sure he's worth the 1st.

    Again, depends on what position they draft at #31, although not first round talent BI is second and certainly third.

    Steelers don't often draft back to back identical position players, so if they go CB or DL, Ijalana
    should be there for them in the second.
