He is one of the more instinctual DB's in this draft and would make a seamless transition to FS similar to Jarius Byrd. Measures up about the same as Earl Thomas 5-10 196.

The injury is going to drop him because he is likely to start the season on the PUP list. He is a guy that could be a available in the 3-4 rd area and become an impact defender rather early as a centerfielder. Thoughts?

Potentally a pup list guy, but we have some guys that could hold it down for a a season possibly. I think he still worth it. The overall goal should be building torwards the future anyway. Getting. him in the 3-4 range is great value. Be competitive in 2015, but look to being a contender in 2016 and beyond

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu's Injury Worse Than Advertised

Updated April 22, 2015
By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell

A few months ago, Oregon cornerback Ifo Ekpre-Olomu was in the running to be the top-ranked corner, but then he suffered a knee injury during bowl practice before Oregon's game against Florida State. It was said to be a torn ACL, but team sources I've spoken to say the knee injury was much worse and was along the lines of Marcus Lattimore or Willis McGahee's rather than a simple ACL tear like the one suffered by Georgia running back Todd Gurley or Texas A&M offensive tackle Cedric Ogbuehi.

Sources say that Ekpre-Olomu tore more than an ACL and there was a variety of damage done to his knee. At one point, there were some teams' medical staffs that were wondering if lingering effects of the injury would force Ekpre-Olomu to retire before every playing again, like Lattimore. However, recent checks have been more positive and teams feel that Ekpre-Olomu has a shot at playing again.

The injury is significant enough, however, that some teams are putting Ekpre-Olomu in their undrafted prospect group. A contact from one team thinks that Ekpre-Olomu could have a shot at going on day three of the draft like Lattimore did, but their team doesn't have a round grade on Ekpre-Olomu because of the medical report. They have Ekpre-Olomu as an undrafted free agent as well.
