The Longhorns have a good one in defensive end Charles Omenihu.
His talent has been noticed by NFL.com senior analyst Gil Brandt, who used to work in personnel for the Dallas Cowboys. Brandt thinks Omenihu will end up in the top 50 picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Eight more seniors I've had chance to do work on that should end up in top 50 in 2019 draft:
QB Drew Lock, MIZZOU
DE Montez Sweat, MSST
WR DeeBo Samuel, SOCAR
S Marvell Tell, USC
CB Blessuan Austin, RUT
DE Charles Omenihu, TEX
CB Amani Oruwariye, PSU
DE Carl Granderson, WYO https://t.co/8pgfASfyfv

Omenihu elected to stay in school after a solid junior season. He had some interest in the 2018 NFL Draft, but will get a chance to improve his already high draft grade.
Omenihu had four sacks and seven tackles for a loss during his junior year. As a senior, he’ll have a chance to use his massive frame to generate much more pressure on quarterbacks.
Where Omenihu ends in the 2019 NFL Draft isn’t a set-in-stone place. He’ll need to earn his draft grades with a high production season. Luckily for him, he has the size and speed to make himself one of the conference’s premiere pass rushers in the 2018 season.
