Pick Analysis: Iseoluwapo Jedege (pronounced Is-ee-OH-loo-WAH-po Juh-GHED-ee) moved from Nigeria to the United States in 2013 to play basketball, first at a prep school and then at the College of Central Florida. After he completed his time there, he found his way to Valdosta State to play football despite a total lack of experience. He learned the game in 2016 (three tackles, one for loss in seven games) and 2017 (12 tackles, blocked kick in eight games). In 14 games as a senior, he posted 32 tackles, seven for loss, 5.5 sacks, and two blocked kicks to earn first-team All-Gulf South Conference honors as a special teams performer and second-team all-conference accolades on defense. Jegede was also an Academic All-District honoree for the Division II national champions in 2018.
