9. Adetomiwa Adebawore, DL, Northwestern

The hype around Adetomiwa Adebawore was starting to get out of control. However, now that the first round came and went it looks like everything is back to normal and the early mock drafts on Adetomiwa Adebawore were more accurate than recent thoughts.

Adetomiwa Adebawore rose up because of his performance at the Senior Bowl and NFL Combine. However, the tape is still too raw for him to be considered a first-round pick. He still may go top 50, and because his hype is still high we have him lower on this list.

Still, it is clear that Adetomiwa Adebawore was more hyped by the media than the NFL. It is fair to some degree. He did not light the world on fire at Northwestern, and his tape brings questions. Still, most of the questions are about him playing on the edge in college, while most in the NFL would view him as a three-technique. So, did fans overreact to the Senior Bowl, or was his limited glimpse as a three-technique show that he needs to be an option for the Chicago Bears? The question now is whether he is going to fall.
