Draft Rewind 2012 – Duke Ihenacho – Denver Broncos

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about DUKE IHENACHO: San Jose State, 6001 213 4.62. Four-year starter. Broke foot in 2010 after 2 games and was granted a red-shirt year. Passes the look test for a strong safety. Rangy with long arms and a physical build. Active in run support. Plays smart and is athletic. Has some hip tightness when he turns to break on a ball. Good ability to quick key and diagnose the play. Will finish long pursuit. Plays with confidence and toughness. Aggressive and competitive. Will go for the strip on a wide receiver or ball carrier. Played linebacker as a sophomore before moving to safety. Good zone discipline and awareness. Plays short and outside well. Will struggle versus a speed receiver in the slot. Should be a special teams’ coverage dynamo. Brother Carl plays linebacker for the Oakland Raiders. Duke was a three-time All-Western Athletic Conference honoree, first in school history. 2011 stats: 73 tackles, 6 PBU, 1 INT, 2 FF, 2 FR. BTR:left 4.88, right 5.06. OSR:8/20. Fifth/sixth round. (A-32 3/4, H-9, VJ-35, SS-4.22).
