Eluemunor (eh-LOO-muh-nor) grew up in North London, coming over to the United States at the age of 14. He played rugby in England but moved to wrestling and football in his high school days in New Jersey. He went to Lackawanna College in 2012 and 2013, earning second-team all-conference honors in his second season. Eluemunor redshirted in 2014 and was a back-up at right guard and he continued to learn the game in 2015. He finally got on the field in his final year, showing great promise while starting 12 of 13 games, three at right guard and nine at right tackle.
Girthy, wide body with big bubble and exceptional weight room strength. Functional lateral quickness makes him scheme diverse. Has feet to mirror in pass pro. Has the active feet and movement ability in space to handle combo blocks. Well conditioned. Able to withstand Texas heat and Texas A&M's offensive pace. Has limited football experience and should continue to grow in knowledge and technique. Shows potential to improve with unlocking hips. Hand strength allows him to punch and snatch inside the frame and lock into opponents. Powerful upper body and good core strength provide ammo for sustaining blocks. Experience at right tackle creates roster flexibility.
Came from overseas and still inexperienced relative to most at his position. Football instincts and intelligence are a work in progress. Has relatively short arms and small hands. Too much wasted motion with feet. Hops and bounces as drive blocker rather than sitting down and driving with powerful, choppy steps. Darting three techniques could be an early issue. Has some forward lean into pass sets. Carries hands very low before punching. Will need to play with compact, quick punch as a guard. Inside hand flies too far outside the frame. Lack of experience creates confusion against twists.

"I didn't think too much about him before we played, but we were impressed with him. He's a really powerful guy and he moves way better than I expected. I thought he was going to be stiff but he's not." -- SEC defensive coach
Got a late start in the sport and his football intelligence can suffer at times because of it. Eluemunor's girthy frame and core strength are two big check marks for his move inside to guard. Despite his weight, he is light on his feet and can handle zone blocking responsibilities or can pull for teams looking to utilize him in power. Eluemunor is still considered a developmental prospect, but his size and strength could make him an eventual starter in time.
