OVERVIEW

Adeboware is an intriguing option as a JFM clone in Robert Saleh's defense. He has rare athleticism and would fit in well with the Jets attacking scheme. If he's hanging around on day 2, I think the Jets could be quite interested.

SUMMARY

Adetomiwa Adebawore is a tweener with incredibly rare explosiveness. Adebawore had moderate production in 2022 with 5 sacks and 9 tackles for loss. He also had a moderate 14% pass rush win rate. He played at EDGE mostly but kicked inside in pass rush fronts.

Adebawore has a strong stout build. At the combine he measured in at 6'2" 282 lbs. He's an extremely rare athlete. He registered a 4.49-second forty, a 37.5 inch vertical, 10'5" broad jump, and 27 bench reps. Adebawore's forty time was the fastest by anyone over 270 pounds. He might be somewhat light for a IDL but he's grown man strong and his usage at Northwestern could work in certain NFL schemes (like the Jets).

Adebawore has violent hands and he uses his length well. He's able to control blockers and disengage quickly in run defense. At defensive end, he's able to set a strong edge and is difficult to reach on.

Adebawore has room to grow as a pass rusher. He can win with power and effort but needs to develop a better pass rush plan. What he lacks in technique as a rusher, though, he makes up for with explosiveness and physicality. His length and strength are enough to make him a threat 1-on-1 both inside and outside.

Adebawore has the physical makeup to contribute right away in an attacking front as a 3 or 5-technique. He'll need some time to truly reach his ceiling as a pass rusher but he has all the physical tools he needs to do so.
