Kiran Amegadjie - Yale

Amegadjie began his Yale career at right guard and played 669 snaps there in 2021. He also played 24 snaps at left tackle in the same season! But he played exclusively as a tackle for the following two seasons, playing all of his 895 snaps there!

He was one of the smaller tackles in this year's class at 6 foot 5 inches tall and 323 lbs. But his 36 and 1/8-inch arms put him in the 92nd percentile of the class. He was named to the All-Ivy League team on three occasions!

Amegadjie told The Athletic he is “the most interesting prospect” in this class. That's partly because he hasn’t played much football. He says a bad experience put him off football when he was younger, and then in 2023, he suffered a partially torn quadricep.

So he only played four games, but only four tackles allowed a lower pressure percentage throughout their careers. Those four are Amarius Mims, Joe Alt, Patrick Paul, Olu Fashanu, and Christian Jones, three of whom were picked in the first round.
