    Kelechi Osemele

    Mel Kiper has him as the 4th best offensive tackle in next years draft.

    2012 NFL draft: Early look at Andrew Luck, Dan "Boom" Herron, Michael Floyd and those returning to school in 2011 - ESPN

    CBS sports has him as the #1 offensive guard in the 2012 draft.

    NFL Draft - 2012_OG Draft Prospects - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com

    If he has an outstanding season this year, he has a chance to be ISU's first, first round pick in ISU history. He also has a chance to be either the second or third, second round pick in ISU's history. If he manages to be a first round pick, it would have a major effect on recruiting. Let's all hope and pray for a healthy, dominating season from KO.

    Re: Kelechi Osemele

    He's had his inconsistencies, but if you watch him play he frequently makes some poor defender his ***** play after play after play.

    Big fan of KO.

    Re: Kelechi Osemele

    I think he's a guard, perhaps a RT. I would love to see him among those players who are talked about in the Top 10.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Kelechi Osemele

    Watched him a lot in the spring game, he had three plays ending in Horne's end around for a touchdown where he pancaked two guys and on the third was out on the edge where he picked up Leonard Johnson and drove him all the way out of bounds.

    I had no idea he rolled at 6'6", 354 though. For his size he moves it pretty well, which is probably why he's so highly thought of.

    This. He was over at a guy I know's house last year a few times and every time he came through the door, he had to duck and lead with one shoulder to fit through the door.

    I'd have to look, but maybe an old timer can confirm. Wasn't George Amundson a 1st round pick?

    Re: Kelechi Osemele

    He's a mauler, but he really needs to quit holding dudes in the red zone. I bet he committed drive killing penalties that kept points off the board 10-12 times last year.

    Don't get me wrong, I love KO but that's one aspect of his game that needs to improve for a lot of reasons.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    KO's biggest strength is being able to handle elite DEs. His biggest weakness is consistency when his competition isn't elite. IMO.

    The only killing he needs to do is killing some poor suckers on the other team. He is an absolute monster.

    It was hilarious when he dominated Leonard and they hugged afterwards.
