CBS Sports' Dane Brugler believes Texas A&M redshirt junior T Germain Ifedi has the "potential to extend the Aggies' streak of first round offensive linemen to four straight years."
"Ifedi is thickly built and is tough to move from his spot, using stout angles to wall off run lanes and beat up defenders. He has vines for arms and uses his reach to create separation between him and rushers, but he does tend to get grabby with his wild, heavy hands," Brugler writes. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Ifedi chose to come back for his junior season after receiving a 2nd round grade from the advisory committee. Ifedi already has 24 career starts on his resume entering this season, and is the Aggies’ most experienced player on the offensive unit. Sep 2 - 2:06 PM

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline believes Texas A&M redshirt junior T Germain Ifedi is being "vastly underrated."

"This time last year I wrote glowingly about then offensive guard Germain Ifedi and predicted he was the next great offensive line prospect from A&M," Pauline wrote. "I was even more impressed watching him at right tackle in 2014 and feel he’s being vastly underrated. Ifedi possesses the footwork and mobility to pass protect as well as the athleticism to block in motion." Pauline gives Ifedi a Rd. 1 grade. "Though he needs to improve his run blocking strength Ifedi has the makings of a starting tackle at the next level who can play on the either left or right side," Pauline wrote. "Word at present time is Ifedi will enter the 2016 NFL draft."

Texas A&M coach Kevin Sumlin said redshirt junior T Germain Ifedi may have made a lot more money by returning to school for another campaign.

Ifedi appears ticketed for left tackle; as an Aggie, that just about guarantees a lifetime of financial security for his family. Just ask the last three men who manned the position, all of them first-round picks: Luke Joeckel, Jake Matthews and Cedric Ogbuehi. "We sit down with our guys and say, 'Here's where you are draft-wise, and you can play your way into this.' That happened with Jake, who played himself into the top 10, and probably made somewhere between nine and 14 million (more) dollars by coming back," Sumlin said. "Germain is a bona fide, longtime player in the NFL, for sure at guard. We're working him at tackle. He's more of a right tackle than a left tackle at the next level. Can he play left tackle? Definitely." Sumlin further indicated that Ifedi was given a late-second or third-round grade for May's draft. "He decided to come back and try to move up," Sumlin said.

Texas A&M paid for the loss-of-value insurance policy taken out by redshirt junior T Germain Ifedi.

It's not surprising, as the school also did so for former teammate Cedric Ogbuehi. In fact, a school official said the values of the two premiums are similar. "I never have heard of it," Ifedi said of the insurance. "I thought it was an interesting thing. It seemed like a good deal. I still don't know everything about it so far." Ifedi was given a second-round grade from the NFL over the winter. We were unimpressed with his overall work last year, though he does have high-upside talent with a powerful punch and quick feet. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Ifedi must stop giving up ground when confronted with bull rushers.

Texas A&M redshirt junior T Germain Ifedi "can still improve his anchor, but he appears to have fewer holes right now than [Cedric] Ogbuehi had at this same stage," notes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

"Texas A&M has cranked out first-round tackles for three consecutive seasons and it wouldn't shock me to see Ifedi become the fourth," Zierlein wrote. "While he might be flying under the radar for some, I promise you scouts are not sleeping on this talented tackle prospect who has shifted from guard to right tackle and now to left tackle." Zierlein ranks the 6-foot-5, 320-pound Ifedi as the No. 3 offensive lineman in the country. "Ifedi has better hands than Cedric Ogbuehi and nearly the same feet," Zierlein wrote. "His initial kick-slide gains substantial ground helping to cut off edge rushers, and his change of direction helps to pick up inside moves."

Texas A&M HC Kevin Sumlin said Tuesday he doesn’t expect redshirt sophomore RT Germain Ifedi to return for the regular season.

"He’s iffy for this weekend. I don’t think he’s going to practice this week. It’s a very, very painful situation. I don’t know where he’s going to be. He’s played enough football where if he can go he’ll go, but he’ll have to brace that to see. Germain has a grade two MCL sprain. On bigger guys, that’s a problem. I wouldn’t look to see him for the remainder of the regular season. We’ll probably get him back for the bowl game," Sumlin told the Battalion Online. The 6-foot-5, 320-pound Ifedi was forced to leave Saturday's game against ULM on crutches. Ifedi has been a liability in a number of games for Aggies this season, and some might argue Ogbuehi is best suited for right tackle position.

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore RT Germain Ifedi left Saturday's game against ULL on crutches.

A&M shuffled their offensive line quite a bit because of the injury. Left tackle Cedric Ogbuehi moved to right tackle, with left guard Jarvis Harrison moving to left tackle and Garrett Gramling moving into the starting lineup at left guard. Ifedi has been a liability in a number of games, and some might argue Ogbuehi is best suited for right tackle.

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore Germain Ifedi "certainly is one to watch for the future," notes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.

Ifedi looks the part of an NFL lineman at 6-foot-5, 320 pounds, but he retains three years of eligibility with which to polish his game. "Though he is technically eligible for the 2015 NFL draft after the season due to the fact that he'll be three years removed from his high school graduating class, Ifedi would be well served returning for further development," Rang wrote. "The talent is clear. Ifedi impressed last season at right guard and signed with the Aggies as a highly regarded prospect. He is a naturally powerful man with long arms and athleticism and saw time at right tackle during camp."

Texas A&M redshirt sophomore Germain Ifedi is expected to make the shift from right guard to right tackle.

"He came back from break at 327 [pounds]," head coach Kevin Sumlin said in a positive way. "He likes playing tackle. So we'll see. He's competing, and the way he's playing right now, he doesn't want to give it up." This is a traditional path for the pipeline A&M has created, with Cedric Ogbuehi moving to left tackle. Ifedi is competing with senior Jarvis Harrison.
