The Chicago Bears drafted Yale tackle Kiran Amegadjie with their third-round pick, 75th overall in the 2024 NFL draft. He was a notable player in the draft community, but coming from the Ivy League it is clear that many Bears fans do not know much about him. 

What are the main stats to know about the newest addition to the team?

3. Kiran Amegadjie was a three-year starter at Yale 

A player coming from Yale is going to have to make an adjustment to the NFL. For Kiran Amegadjie, you can argue that his experience is both a plus and a weakness when making this jump. 

Kiran Amegadjie is a three-year starter at Yale. That experience is great. However, he also has 1,595 snaps over three years, including 860 pass-blocking snaps, and 735 run blocking snaps. 

That is a good bit. However, the reason he went to Yale is because he did not play football at all until his junior year of high school. He came to Yale with limited experience playing the game, and he was raw. What also hurts is that he suffered a quad injury during his Senior season and only four games. 

Lastly, Amegadjie started his career as a guard, so he has just 919 snaps at left tackle for his career. That is a small sample for a raw player coming from a small school. That is why he fell to round three, and that is why Braxton Jones should not be worried, yet. However, he has to know that his long-term status on the team was impacted by this move.
