Overview

Prince Tega Wanogho is a very gifted athlete at tackle that has good size and traits that can be molded. The issue is, he is very raw with his technique and footwork that is going to see him take a lot of time to develop. Some teams are going to be driven away with his arm length as it is below the NFL's preferred threshold of 34 inches. 

Whatever team ends up drafting him would need to have tackles already in place to where they can sit PTW as depth and let him develop, or that team will need to be willing to deal with some really rough play as he grows and adjusts. Medicals are also a concern here.

Fit with Broncos

The fit with the Broncos would really depend on where PTW falls and how the medicals checked out. Denver is ready to roll with Garett Bolles and Ja’Wuan James as their starting tackles, but they need someone to develop to be part of the future at the position. 

While PTW is raw, Mike Munchak is one of the best O-line coaches in the NFL and if any coach can develop this prospect, it is him. PTW is a fit that cold make a lot of sense for Denver, but it will depend on a couple of factors for it to happen.

Grade: No. 53 overall prospect

Where he Goes: Round 2
