He is viewed as an excellent end prospect for the 3-4 defense because of his size, strength and experience in the system (Stanford ran a 3-4 defense until 2007).
Egboh is a gifted athlete with a high ceiling. He posted 49 total tackles, 13.5 tackles for loss and six sacks as a junior in 2007. He was injured in 2008, when he posted just 31 tackles and 1.5 sacks, but is healthy now and ready to make an impact.
He talked with SDBoltReport.com's Erin Murphy in Indianapolis about the possibility of that impact coming in San Diego.

PE: It's going well. It's kind of weird because it's a lot more mental than it is physical. All the physicals and the waking up early and the interviews and stuff. You just have to find a way to relax.
EM: What do you hope to accomplish?
PE: I hope to prove to NFL scouts that I'm healthy and I'm good to go, 100 percent.
EM: It sounds like you're revved up and eager to hit the field. How excited are you to work out for NFL teams?
PE: I need [the workouts]. I had a great junior year in college and was excited to build on top of it with a strong senior year. I had a great camp, great spring ball, got injured during the season and my play kind of fell off. These workouts are important to me to show NFL scouts and GMs that I'm healthy and ready to go.
EM: Speaking of NFL teams, have you met with anyone from San Diego? If so, what did that meeting entail?
PE: Yes, I spoke to the Chargers. It was an informal meeting. I couldn't tell you who I talked to.
EM: If the Chargers call your name on draft day, what would you bring to the team?
PE: I'm very coachable, very reliable, very hard working and a guy who can help a team in the run game and contribute on special teams. Ultimately, my goal is to make a 53-man roster.
EM: What are you doing between now and the draft to stay ready?
PE: I'm training in Davy, Fla., at Perfect Competition.
