Bio: Junior college transfer who became a full-time starter last season, winning All-Conference honors. Senior totals included 31/1/7.

Pos: Outstanding athlete with classic size/speed numbers. Quick-footed in reverse, easily runs downfield with opponents and possesses a burst of speed. Physical, quick supporting the run and wraps up tackling. Best in zone facing the quarterback.

Neg: Stiff turning his hips in transition. Slow reacting to receivers' moves and loses assignments. Lacks a sense of timing and is a half-step late arriving on the scene.

Analysis: Raw and unpolished, Onyenegecha has displayed definite signs of improvement the past two years. Needs a lot of work but is a nickel back with terrific upside.
