Prince Tega Wanogho, Auburn 6’5″, 308 pounds

Prince Tega Wanogho is a fascinating story as he is a native of Nigeria who did not play football growing up. However, he moved to Alabama and got recruited to play at Auburn. He went from a raw tackle with size to a starter in the final two and a half years of his college career. He has taken huge steps, can he keep going?

He is still very raw coming into the NFL draft. He held his own thanks to his size and athleticism but has a lot to work on. However, he has played both right and left tackle and could be a player the Bears develop and groom to be a long term starter who they will not rely on early.

Tega Wanogho will have to test well this weekend to get teams to buy into the upside that comes with the time it takes to develop him. A good weekend would have to put him in the Bears target range, so fans will have to pay attention to just how much juice could be squeezed.
