“Emesibe has a nice blend of size and strength. He possesses good height and bulk and a frame that can support more good size with time in a college weight program .. A player who’s not too tough to like as he is an explosive and high-effort prospect who can productively contribute to a defensive line … He looks to play with a good motor and will throw his body around.”
