Below is the PFF draft profile for Texas A&M's Germain Ifedi, which incorporates PFF’s college grades and scouting intel from our team of analysts. To see all of PFF’s 2016 scouting reports, click here.

Position fit:
Offensive tackle or guard. Played right tackle at Texas A&M

Stat to know:
96.2 pass-blocking efficiency was 76th in the FBS

Combine stats:
Height: 6-6
Weight: 324
Arm length: 36 inches
Hand size: 10 ¾ inches
40-yard dash: 5.27
Broad jump: 9-1
Bench: 24
20-yard shuttle: 4.75

What he does best:
• Body of an NFL tackle. Insanely long arms that can stone defenders in their tracks when he times his punch well. Graded out much higher in pass protection as a sophomore
• Naturally powerful man. Tossed around linebackers when he squared them up
• Will ride defenders all the way to the ground on double teams. Buried more than a few defensive tackles on the backside of inside zone

Biggest concern:
• His long arms are doing him no favors at the moment. Lacks any ability to latch on and maintain a block. Hand placement is a mess
• Change of direction is so poor. Was exposed in pass protection this past season where he graded negatively. Had no chance against any sort of quickness
• Plays so hunched over. Leads to his hands flying out too wide and poor balance. Was left waving at linebackers at the second level far too often

Player comparison:
Donovan Smith, Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Ifedi will have many of the same pass pro issues as Smith did his rookie season and both could end up at guard

Bottom line:
People will fall in love with his NFL frame, but his technique isn’t close to an NFL level yet. It will take him a handful of years to get to there if he ever does.
