Round 2 Pick 45: Kiran Amagedjie- Offensive Tackle, Yale

In the second round, the Saints go with Kiran Amagedjie, filling a need at offensive tackle. Personally, Amegadjie is one of my favorite prospects in this year's draft. He has an elite frame for a tackle, standing at 6-foot-5, 326 pounds. He is also super athletic and shows traits of being an elite tackle at the next level.

Kiran Amagedjie provides versatility as he has played guard in college. He would likely still be a tackle but if the Saints did wish to convert him then they could. In pass protection, Amagedjie hasn’t allowed a sack in his previous two years at Yale. Amagedjie contains a nasty streak in the run game and will plow over players at the second level. He has experience in a zone running scheme which would make his transition easier.

There are a few concerns about Amagedjie, mainly his level of competition. At Yale, he towers over his competition. Due to a quad tear, he wasn’t able to compete at the Senior Bowl. If he had, it would be a lot easier to project how he would be at the next level. Regardless of these concerns, Kiran Amagedjie is someone that the Saints should put serious thought into drafting in the second round.
