Pos: 
Undersized college pass rusher who comes off a disappointing season. Quick with his hands, explosive at the point and breaks down well. Fast up the field, shows a closing burst of speed and can bend off the edge. Consistently plays with proper pad level, remains disciplined with assignments and shows good agility and balance.
Neg: 
Occasionally used off the line of scrimmage but does not look comfortable in space. Has size limitations. Takes a lot of wide angles around blockers and needs a free shot at the quarterback.
Analysis: 
Iheoma was graded by scouts as a potential late-round pick before the season but failed to meet expectations. He's a situational pass rusher who must play well on special teams to make a roster at the next level.
