The Chicago Bears could benefit from claiming Prince Tega Wanogho, OT – Chiefs

There is a connection to this player here with Ryan Poles. Poles was part of the Chiefs organization last year, and although Prince Tega Wanogho was actually drafted by the Eagles out of the sixth round in 2020, the Chiefs brought him in to help try and rebuild their offensive line in 2021. Poles has obviously done his homework on Wanogho.

Wanogho is an offensive tackle who fits the build that Poles likes in an offensive lineman too. He is tall at 6’5″ and weighs in at a lean 308 pounds. I had Shon Coleman making the final roster as a guy I thought they might hold onto but look to cut later as guys became available. When I look at the type of moves Poles has made this offseason, claiming Wanogho to take over for a 30-year-old Coleman makes too much sense.

Wanogho might not see the field, but I just have a feeling that Poles would prefer a younger, agile lineman who he helped scout prior to signing him. When we go back to his college tape at Auburn, you can clearly see how athletic Wanogho is as an offensive lineman. He has a natural bend in the passing game and is able to keep his pad levels low. He has looked solid in the preseason but Wanogho is on the bubble and could be an odd man out of Kansas City.
