Will Ifo Ekpre-Olomu be invited to Radio City Music Hall next year?

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu has been targeted by many draft analysts as a first-round pick in next year’s 2014 NFL Draft.  Ifo broke out on the scene last season with a tally of 4 interceptions and 63 tackles.  His coming out party was in the win against Washington where he forced two fumbles, had one pass breakup and made seven tackles (six solo).

The talented cornerback does lack some size at 5-10, but makes up for it with his big hits and his ability to jump routes.  With Ifo being only 19 years old, he has a lot of room to grow and become even more of threat to quarterbacks.  After his breakout year last year look for him to build off it and become one of the top corners in the conference.  If he does make that leap, he’ll easily land in the first round of next year’s draft and could even find himself in the top 10.
