Prince Tega-Wanogho is a name NFL fans and especially Cincinnati Bengals fans should get to know. The Auburn Tigers from Delta State, Nigeria is a player who has been climbing up mock draft boards since September and will be in Mobile, AL for the 2020 Senior Bowl.

Wanogho is a big man. At 6-foot-7 and 301 lbs, and a projected 40-yard dash time of 5.0, the Auburn product looks to be a player who could be a steal if he slips into the later rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft. Current projections have him as high as the first round, but a greater likelihood is the later second or third. For the Bengals, a team looking for and needing help on the offensive line, Wanogho could be a nice fit.

This is a player who only slips due to some raw elements in his game. Having initially came to the United States to play basketball, football became the game of choice. As such, he’s got tremendous athleticism for a big man and demonstrated solid skills as a pass blocker while also being able to get out on the perimeter.

Technically, he will need work. But the upside shouldn’t be missed. For a Bengals team who needs a lot of help in the trenches, he might be too good to pass up.
