After a stellar Senior Bowl week, Notre Dame football defensive end Adetokunbo Ogundeji is ready for the 2021 NFL Draft and should have plenty of suitors. Ogundeji has the size and skill you look for in an NFL edge rusher, and there are plenty of needy teams out there looking to improve their pass rush.
Here are three ideal landing spots for Ogundeji in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Notre Dame football: Ideal NFL spot for Ade Ogundeji, No. 3
Despite making it to the NFL Playoffs this past season, and the AFC title game the year before, the Tennessee Titans have a lot of issues on the defensive side of the ball. In fact, they were the worst defensive team to make the playoffs in the AFC, and head coach Mike Vrabel will certainly look to address that this offseason.
Over the past few NFL Drafts, the Titans have tried to get better up front along the defensive line, drafting a defensive tackle in each of the last two draft seasons, including Jeffrey Simmons in the first round in 2019. However, they have not drafted a defensive end since Kevin Dodd back in 2016, and that could change this year.
Guys like Jack Crawford and Jedeveon Clowney will likely be gone due to free agency, clearing a perfect spot for Ogundeji to come in and possibly start right away. He has the frame you look for, and the motor and Vrabel is in desperate need of help on the edge.
