2015 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu


Height: 5’9”

Weight: 192

Position: Cornerback

Career Stats: 244 tackles, nine interceptions, 43 pass deflections and eight forced fumbles.

Strengths: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu has some of the best instincts you’re going to find in a cornerback, as he reads things very well and usually guesses right when breaking on the ball. Speaking of that, Ekpre-Olomu has great ball skills, which goes to show why he had 43 pass break ups in four years. Ekpre-Olomu has quick feet and is a fluid athlete that allows him to adjust on the fly. Ekpre-Olomu has the ability to cover on the outside or in the slot. Despite his small frame, Ekpre-Olomu isn’t afraid to get his hands dirty in run support or tackling overall. Ifo Ekpre-Olomu is a hard worker, a leader on and off the field and doesn’t come with any baggage.

Weaknesses: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu will have to learn to be more patient at the next level, as he spends a lot of time trying to jump routes, which sometimes allows him to get beat in coverage. Ekpre-Olomu can also be sloppy when it comes to tackling. Ekpre-Olomu doesn’t have the prototypical cornerback size you’d like to see. The main concern with Ekpre-Olomu is his health, as he’s coming off a torn ACL and didn’t participate in any of the NFL combine drills.  

Projection: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu isn’t going to go where he should because of his size and his knee injury. However, Ekpre-Olomu is a solid prospect when healthy and could carve out a solid career as a dude who takes away team’s slot receivers. Ekpre-Olomu has great ball skills and the confidence to match. I’d consider taking Ekpre-Olomu as early as late round three, early round four.
