  • Duke Ejiofor adds to a stacked ACC edge class for 2018 as a current projected Day 2 pick on the PFF Big Board. His 82.1 overall grade last season derived almost equally from both the run and pass aspects of the game.
  • Ejiofor has the ability to win on the inside from the edge using the arm-over technique. He ranked 15th in snaps per inside pressure (24.3).
  • While his pass-rushing has always been a strength, Ejiofor’s improved his run defense each of the last three years – 45.1, 68.1, 78.9 in 2014, 2015 and 2016, respectively.
  • Ejiofor converted 11 of his 36 total pressures into sacks last year, an impressive rate of 30.6 percent.
