06/20/14 - Oregon's top NFL Draft-eligible prospects to watch in 2014: 3. CB Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, Senior...With opponents forced to try and keep up with the Ducks' high-octane offense, Oregon's defenders are often in position to make big plays - something that Ekpre-Olomu has proven quite adept at doing in earning consecutive First-Team All-Pac-12 honors the past two seasons. Athletic, physical and instinctive, Ekpre-Olomu (full name is pronounced ee-fo eck-pray-olo-moo) is a turnover machine, registering 15 takeaways (seven interceptions, seven forced fumbles and one fumble recovery) during this time.
While competitive and alert, Ekpre-Olomu isn't necessarily the shoo-in first round prospect that his hype may lead one to believe. He lacks prototype size and relies on vision, timing and hand-eye coordination rather than extraordinary speed or fluidity to shut down opponents. He possesses broad shoulders and a well-built frame, overall and is sound in run-support, traits that could make him one of the country's best all-around cornerbacks but one perhaps best suited to playing the nickel in the NFL. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com

Ifo Ekpre-Olomu, CB, 5-10, 185, Sr., Oregon: Instinctive, athletic and tough in run support, Ekpre-Olomu has stood out in the pass-heavy Pac-12 throughout his career. He doesn't have the frame scouts would prefer, but the tape doesn't lie. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
