In recent years, it’s not common to see players from the Ivy League announce their intention to enter the NFL Draft as the college season winds down. However, Yale tackle Kiran Amegadjie is one of the exceptions. On Monday, he announced that he will be entering the 2024 draft.
Amegadjie played right guard as a freshman and moved to left tackle in 2022. He was an All-Ivy first-team selection in 2021 and again in 2023. However, his 2023 season was cut short by a quad injury that required surgery. In October, Senior Bowl executive director Jim Nagy said that his staff ranked Amegadjie as the only player below the top division of college football with a chance to be selected on the second day of the draft.
The inability to do on-field work leading up to the draft could impact his ultimate spot, but Amegadjie seems likely to hear his name called at some point. It’s worth monitoring his progress and seeing where he ultimately ends up in the draft.
