In my galaxy they have a saying, “Ifo Elpre-Olomu” which means You are covered in a blanket. Wow this cornerback can play! The Ducks are not known for there defense but they have some very solid defensive prospects in this draft starting with Ifo.
The first time I saw Ifo play was in 2013 against Brandin Cooks, a WR who would be drafted by the Saints. Cooks ate the opposition alive for most of 2013…until Ifo happened. When Ifo happens, Ifo hurts. Like Cooks, Ifo is a little guy standing 5’9 and weighing 195 lbs. Don’t let that fool you, he will come up and make the big hit on the ball carrier.
Do the Dolphins need a CB? Is he a good fit? Well who knows what happens on the other side of Grimes in 2015. Oregon plays a lot of off zone coverage, so on its face, it seems like Ifo might be a good fit.
Ifo is quite the ball hawk/duck. He had 9 career interceptions at Oregon. Although undersized he has shown the ability to win the ball at the point of attack. His speed and his instincts are probably his strength. He can be an elite CB in the NFL, although some experts think he is best suited to play nickel – but I will submit to you that they always say that about little guys, so take it with a grain of Venus Worm Powder.
One negative thing to be aware of is that Ifo tore his ACL in 2014 which caused him to miss the end of the season and the post season. Then again Brent Grimes tore his Achilles Tendon in 2012 and managed to play at a pro bowl level for the Dolphins. The injury might cause Ifo to fall to the 2nd round, maybe even later – he might end up being a steal to somebody.
If I was going to compare Ifo to an Alien Weapon of Destruction I would compare him to the Sticky Slime of the Zuryian Moon. You can try to get it off you – but Ifo is stuck on you.
