Bio: 
Two-year starter who earned Second Team All-MAC honors and led Toledo with 20 tackles for loss, 8.5 sacks and three forced fumbles as a senior while making 66 tackles. Made 49 tackles (eight for loss) with four sacks in 2016.
Pos: 
Explosive pass rusher with potential as a one-gap defensive end or stand-up linebacker. Intense, quick and disciplined. Effectively reads and diagnoses the action, plays within himself and does more than just pin his ears back and rush the quarterback. Competitive, fires off the snap and gets a lot of momentum going up the field. Displays good change of direction, quickly gets into space to make plays and wraps up tackling. Constantly around the action and shows a good head for the ball. Breaks down well and effectively uses his hands to protect himself.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk. Easily disrupted from his angle of attack. Struggles getting off blocks once engaged at the point. One-speed defender with marginal burst.
Analysis: 
Adeniyi was very productive as a pass rusher the past two seasons and is a hard-charging defender who plays intense football. He has limitations due to his size but should be very productive as a situational pass rusher in a variety of schemes.
