PHILADELPHIA, PA – Former Morris Knolls High School offensive lineman Jermaine Eluemunor’s unique approach to learning American football is about to pay off in a big way.

The senior offensive guard who played college football at Texas A&M is projected to be a third or fourth round pick in this week’s NFL Draft, according to NFL.com.

Eluemunor grew up in England playing rugby, according to NFL.com, but took up wrestling and football when he moved to New Jersey at the age of 14. The Denville native stands at 6’4”, 332 pounds. Eluemunor played in 25 games over two seasons for the Aggies, including 12 games in 2016. He transferred to College Station from Lackawanna College (Scranton, P.A.) in 2013.

“I didn't think too much about him before we played, but we were impressed with him,” a SEC defensive coach told NFL.com. “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.”

CBS Sports has Eluemunor as the 11th best offensive guard in the draft, but has a slightly lower draft projection than NFL.com (fourth or fifth round).
